Vinyl junkies stand by
Couple of events coming up for you...
Leading hiphop DJ (and Rip It Up editor) Sirvere is having a record sale, November 14 and 15, 10am-6pm both days. He's selling Hip Hop, RnB and soul vinyl from his extensive collection - 1000's of 12"s, EPs and LPs. The address is Askew's Studio, 13 Great North Road, Grey Lynn, which is near the corner of Great North rd and Ponsonby rd. (See photos above., below)

Also coming up, the next installment of the Record Collectors Fair is happening on Saturday the 21st of November 2009, this time at a new venue. Kelston Community Hall, Just off Great North Road, Awaroa Road, Next to Waikumete Cemetery. This venue is bigger and better with more stall holders than ever before, more parking and a nicer location.

And on tonight, The Turnaround, the monthly club night full of vinyl delights from Manuel Bundy, Cian  and Submariner - this month they have "succumbed to the siren’s song and invited some laydeeeez to step up to the plate for this Halloween special. Aroha, Wendy Douglas, Maiden Hong Kong and Lisa From Down The Road will be concocting and mixing up a wicked brew of sonic sorcery for your musical enjoyment.  Ahem!!!" 

Any rumours that Manny, Cian and Subby will dress up in full drag are groundless, apparently, but I bet Manny would look the best of those three boys. He'd give Buckwheat a run for her money! (Kidding, Manny, kidding.) Kick off is 10pm, at Toto Bacco Room, 53 Nelson, st, only $15 on the door.
