Saturday 20th April – Record Store Day Focus: Acorn Music – Yeovil

Acorn_shopfront_LOWRESSaturday 20th April is Record Store Day, an annual celebration founded in 2007 when over 700 independent stores in the US joined together to celebrate their unique culture. The UK followed soon after and this year Acorn Music in Yeovil will again be marking the day with their own music feast.

Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are being made exclusively for the day with hundreds of artists across the globe making special appearances and performing live. Acorn Music owner Chris Lowe gave us an insight to the day he has planned, although he joked about his failed plan to get this year’s ambassador, Jack White (The White Stripes), to play. Lucas Eldridge will be in his customary spot serenading the early arrivals at 8am. He will be followed by new boy Ollie Clayton, the very talented Hollie Trevis, Design (who plan to do three gigs in three places on the day), Follow The Sun, the much loved Mutter “Stackridge” Slater, Dan “No Closure” Hamilton doing his solo thing, Railhogs, Dub Liberators (who knows what they’ll be doing with ukuleles), and, of course, it wouldn’t be RSD in Yeovil without The Animal Urges getting the shopping precinct dancing in the afternoon. If that wasn’t enough, Chris also told us about other incentives: “As usual we will have a fine selection of free cakes on offer and we will be offering a 10% discount across everything on sale in the store apart from Record Store Day releases.” So, with music playing from 8am-3pm make your way to Acorn Music on April 20th, catch some great local acts and support a good local record store.
