This theme has been sat in the waiting area of our to do list for a while and it’s finally time to take it into the operating theatre. So, nice and simply – medically themed records, artists, songs, albums, etc., etc. Doctors, nurses, hospitals, clinics, medicine (good or bad), cures, symptoms, ailments, prescriptions, coughs, colds, hearts (ache-y and indeed break-y)…
We’ll have at least one featured album and will update the website once we know what it will be (hint – there are a lot of Cure albums available). BUT there will of course be lots of room for free play so make sure you bring your own stuff along to play on the pre-loved decks and MASSIVE speakers. Be as tenuous as you like but we’re sure there are plenty to choose from.
So, come and join us on Saturday 27th May. We’re at the Kirkgate Centre, 8pm, finishing at 11.30pm. Beers and snacks are available from the well stocked cash/card bar. Excellent company. with just a £3 on the door donation to help us cover our costs.
See you there!
Our April event finds us on the road again (alright, around the corner) and back at The Triangle in Shipley. They are celebrating their 2nd birthday and have asked The Record Club to pop up on Friday 28th April.
After the fine time we had back in February (and September last year) how could we say no! This time around we are very pleased to welcome Bob Stanley from the very excellent St Etienne, (pictured left with bandmate Pete Wiggs) who will be providing a DJ set during the evening.
For the rest of the night the turntables are open to free play. But it’s free play with a difference. For those interested in playing some of their own tunes we’ll break the rest of the evening down into short sets, a bit like we did with our 7×7 night. If you’d like a spot (around 20 mins) then do get in touch beforehand and we will do our very best to allocate you some time. It’ll be more or less first come first served, so please do get in touch before the night itself if you are interested. The list is already growing.
Just want to be there and chat / listen / dance? That’s cool too!
As it’s a pop up there is no entry donation. If you don’t know about The Triangle (where have you been??) they class themselves as a “Bottle Shop/Art Gallery/Record & Curiosity Shop/Coffee & Cake Specialist” and “selling the finest beers known to humanity”. Which we think is a fair description. Non-beers are also available to purchase of course.
You can find The Triangle at 47 Bradford Rd, Shipley BD18 3DS. Things kick off at 8ish and finish no later than midnight. Hope to see you there!
With Record Club’s October event falling on Hallowe’en this year we thought we’d put our own spin on the ghosts and ghoulies theme by holding a Heaven & Hell night, as we set out to discover whether the devil really does have all the best tunes or, as the Pixies put it, “In Heaven, everything is fine…”
