The second Bristol Record Club is here!
Record Club is a chance to sit down and dedicate the time needed to enjoy important music with other fans. On the night, 2 LP’s will be played - these records might be old classics, forgotten gems or brand spanking new. The records will be nominated by the people in the club (via a comment on the blog or our twitter account) and voted on in the week before the night.
If you love a record nominate it, the records that win the vote will be the ones we play, so send them over to the log now!
SHOP will be open at 7.30pm and we’ll aim to start playing the first record at 8pm. Feel free to bring some nibbles and drinks along.
