Record Store Day 2018 at Rollercoaster Records, Kilkenny

It's Kilkenny behind the decks in Rollercoaster tomorrow to celebrate all things vinyl.

Record Store Day 2018 is this Saturday, 21 April and once again, Rollercoaster Records is playing its part.

Doors open at the shop in time for a 9.30am kick off where the first of 17 DJs/customers/friends will be spinning tunes until the doors close at 6pm.

Those spinning tunes from their own collection on the day include The Kilo 1977, Peter Lawlor (Replete/Solkatt), Steve Aylin, Canice Kenealy, Rollercoaster’s own Dave Holland, KCLR’s Martin Bridgeman, Eddie B and former mayor Malcolm Noonan.

When they do close, the focus shifts to Cleere’s on Parliament Street for a show with Malojian and more Rollercoaster DJs.
