Record Store Day is a great day to go for a record store crawl. Never know who you will run into...

In Auckland, Conch Records is teaming up with George FM for a live broadcast instore. The day will include live performances from Christoph El Truento and co, and Latinaotearoa.

Record Store Day releases at Conch: The Pharcyde - "Bizarre Ride II" 20th Anniversary Box Set // Peter Tosh - "Legalize It" - Echodelic Remixes 10" (PICTURE DISC) // Various - Never To Be Forgotten: The Flip Side of Stax 1968-1974 10 x 7" (LIGHT IN THE ATTIC) Only 4,000 hand-numbered copies worldwide // ESG / Las Kellies - Erase You 7" (FIRE RECORDS).

Real Groovy Records in Queen St has a bunch of special happenings, including the exclusive release of the double vinyl live album Toy Love at The Gluepot. Limited to 400 copies, only available from Real Groovy, limit of one per customer. Live performances from bands and DJs including Rackets, The Broadsides, Princess Chelsea, Tom Scott (Homebrew), Pennie Blair (bFM), Andrew Tidball (Cheese On Toast). More info here.

Get down to Southbound Records, at 69 Mt Eden Rd (down from the Powerstation), worth a gander, and their website promises Record Store Day vinyl exclusives (PiL, Devo, Black Keys, Peter Tosh, Amanda Palmer) and free brewed coffee. Lots of great reissues, only catch is they don't have turntables to let you hear the vinyl before purchasing.

Rhythm Records down the Three Lamps end of Ponsonby Rd has some good vinyl, they're at 299  Ponsonby Rd.

ADDED Volume Magazine hooked up with Lawrence Arabia to make a seven inch single for Record Store Day - "Rick Lapore gave Volume a tour of the Rainbo Records pressing plant in California where the record was made".

Watch the video for the making of the vinyl here.  I would embed the video but the NZ Herald think they own the internetz. Mutter  mutter. You can win a copy of the Lawrence Arabia vinyl, just make a purchase at any NZ record store  this Saturday and send the receipt to Volume, PO Box 32, Auckland.
