FLYING OUT ANNOUNCE RECORD STORE DAY LIVE MUSIC PERFORMANCES
This Saturday 22nd of April is Record store day. As well as the usual special releases, sale items and interesting goings on, Flying Out has put together a killer lineup of live acts performing in their basement.
The Flying Out shop is located at 80 Pitt Street, just of Krd in Newton, Auckland Central.
Fazerdaze will play a live set to celebrate the release of their debut album Morningside. Although the album is officially released 5th of May (on LP, CD, Cassette and Digital), there will be some limited edition clear vinyl records and cassettes available in the Flying Out shop and good record stores on Record Store Day. Ensure you get a copy and an advance listen before the official release
Shayne P. Carter will be making a rare and special solo live appearance playing songs on the piano from his critically acclaimed and Taite Music Prize nominated album Offsider.
Billy TK Snr will appear for a short performance with band - expect lashings of fuzz, wah wah and lots of echo. Billy opens for Endless Boogie at the Tuning Fork on Sunday night.
X-Features will perform a set of jagged, tight and exciting post punk. Late last year the band released their already collectable reissue of X-Features on Flying Nun.
Merk just won the inaugural Best Independent Debut award at the Taite Music Prize for their album Swordfish. They will perform in store with band.
DJ Roger Shepherd will try his hand on the turntables. You can hit him up about that demo you sent Flying Nun in 1987, or talk about the book. For most of the day he should be lurking behind the counter somewhere.
The Flying Out shop will be open from 9am - 5pm for RSD on Saturday 22nd of April.
The live music performances are free and will happen in the basement, which is very small, fitting approx 50 people. We expect it could get busy and it is a case of first in first served. Get there early.
We will be announcing band playing times, special RSD deals and other information shortly - join the Facebook event page here to stay updated.
