Elements – Saturday 6th April 2019

April_elements_RC outlined fonts

For many of us music, records, VINYL in fact are elemental to our existence. A week without a gig, a trip to a record shop or a few hours spent crate digging or clicking (“crate clicking”, I like that one…) is a wasted week.

But apparently there are things even more important to life. Like coffee…. no? Biscuits? Umm… Even more basic? Oh ok. The actual building blocks of life itself…

Ancient Greek brainbox Empedocles thought he had it all figured out when he proposed earth, air, water and fire. Not a bad start and you never heard any complaints from Maurice White and his merry band of funketeers. But science being all science-y decided there were more and before you knew it there’s 118 of the beggars with crazy names like Dubnium, Europium and GOLD!

So we thought why not celebrate all things elemental through the medium of our much-loved vinyl (or polyvinyl chloride as we never call it and which isn’t even an element, pah!). It’s a free play night so there’s no central albums – just bring it and play it. As long as you can tie it back to the theme of ELEMENTS.

On nights like this we easily get through 50+ diverse tracks with lots of polite and friendly chopping and changing at the pre-loved wheels of steel. And if you’re unsure how to work the decks then there is always a friendly face willing to help. Lots of fun, guaranteed.

As usual, our lovely hosts The Triangle will be running the cash & card bar downstairs with some amazing beverage choices, many of them you won’t otherwise find for hundreds of miles. And you can help yourself to some of Bradford’s finest Indian snacks courtesy of Record Club regulars.

So, we’ll see you upstairs at The Triangle, 47 Bradford Rd, Shipley from 8pm until 11.30pm. Elementary!

After several successful years in the Kirkgate Centre (many thanks again guys!), Record Club is changing venues to The Triangle with our first regular evening on Saturday 7th October from 8pm.

It’s open to all with no charge and we were looking for a suitably rousing theme to kick us off. Well, the nights are drawing in and leaves are beginning to fall to the ground, so it must be autumn and that can only mean… Oktoberfest!
