AND there's a record swap going down on saturday in AK...
"Beat Merchants have teamed up with Base FM, Santos and Safari to bring you the Beat Market, this Saturday 25th August from 12 - 4pm.
Basically, you rock up to the Santos/Safari courtyard [on Ponsonby rd] with a crate full of records, grab a coffee/beer and get swappin' - those old Chaka Khan records you have collecting dust could be someone's dream edition to their collection. Like the poster says, it's a time for classic collections to be showcased and refreshed as well as a great time to check out the Beat Merchants sale stock they're sure to have on offer."
