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.
