American Mavericks – Saturday 2nd March 2019

Print

Our next event is dedicated to the American Maverick – art rocker, lone cowboy, socially conscious punk and genre-defining funkmeister. Darren will be leading this one with an eclectic selection including Arthur Lee & Love, Patti Smith, Fugazi, Sly & The Family Stone and The Residents. There’ll be plenty of opportunity for you to pop on a track or two of your own choosing if you’ve got something you think fits the theme in between chewing your pencil over one of Darren’s legendary quizzes.

We get spinning at 8pm upstair at The Triangle, there’s a cash and card bar downstairs selling the finest drinks known to humanity and we’ll lay on a few (free) Indian snacks to enjoy along the way. Lights out at 11.30pm. Come and join us, we’re a friendly bunch and it’s always nice to meet new people!

New Year’s Revolutions in Dub – Saturday 5th January 2019

This new year we’re doing our roots, making a copy, stripping everything back and boosting the drums ‘n’ bass…

We’ll be looking at the reggae beginnings and wide reaching influences of dub music. Covering everything from punk, post-punk, drum and bass, techno, big beat and many, many other musical genres.

Plenty of opportunity for free play at this one so bring along your own dub-y vinyl to throw into this eclectic mix.

We kick off at 8pm upstairs at The Triangle, 47 Bradford Road, Shipley. The needle finally comes off the record at 11.30pm.

DOTDead_RC

Each November all Mexico, and much of South America, celebrates Día de Muertos, the Day of the Dead when spirits walk among us. Families light candles in graveyards and welcome the spirits with their favourite foods. But it’s not gloomy…

Saltaire Festival 2018 Pop Ups – Saturday 8th September

It’s Saltaire Festival time again and for the third year running, as part of the opening weekend Open Gardens event, we’ll be popping up around the village asking you to join us playing some fine vinyl.

This year we’ll be at wonderful Edward St Bakery from 9am before moving on to amazing Tambourine Coffee at 1pm and ending up at the excellent YardFest on Upper Ada St for 5pm. Check the poster for locations if you’re not a Saltaire regular.

We always have a laugh at these events and it’s really nice to meet people who come along with a few records to play or just to listen and hang around.

And like last year our massively popular Record Club badges will be available too.

Hope to see you there!

Saltaire Festival 2017 Pop Ups! Saturday 9th September

On Saturday 9th September Record Club is hoping to repeat the storming success of the 2016 Saltaire Festival Pop Ups with err.. some more in 2017! One long day, four venues, hundreds of records and hopefully good weather (no storms of course).

Our pop ups form part of the Festival’s first weekend Open Garden Trail and we can’t wait to be involved again. Loads of details about all the events taking place at Saltaire Festival between 8th and 17th September can be found by visiting their website, following their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, following the hashtag #SaltFest17 and by joining their mailing list.

So please come and join us and play some records at Edward St Bakery from 10am, Tambourine Coffee from 1pm, YardFest from 4.45pm and (our brand new permanent home from October) The Triangle from 6pm on Saturday 9th September. And bring some records!

Saltaire Festival

To celebrate the tenth Saltaire Festival the organisers of Record Club selected 10 vinyl albums that they think everyone should hear at least once in their lifetime.

You voted for your favourite, and we squeezed the top four into a great evening of music and chat.

The pakora was particularly strong, so we’ll try to make sure that it’s a bit easier on the pallet next time!

Photo’s should appear in the gallery soon…
