Berwick Street Record Store Day

I have already checked the forecast. On the 19th of April, the Saturday where in Berwick Street is planned a Record Store Day, is going to be dry and sunny. Why am I happy for this news? It is because on that day several live music events, bands, and DJ sets will be performing in the area for free. Berwick Street in Soho has got a musical heritage second to none, with lots of independent records shops where in the past I've found few rare and limited edition releases.
From 8 in the morning shops will be open in order to allow all the music lovers to dig up some rare vinyls from historic shops like Reckless Records, Sister Ray, The Music and Video Exchange, all located in Berwick Street or Sounds of the Universe in Broadwick Street, Black Market Records in D'Arblay Street and Phonica in Poland Street.

From 12 to 7 in a stage at the crossroads of Berwick Street and D'Arblay Street, music will go on with live gigs. Adam Ant will perform as well as Orange Juice front man Edwyn Collins. The September Girls and The Augustines will be part of this music day and DJ Andy Smith, Ruts DC and Tim Arnold - The Soho Hobo.
Come early to grab a spot in order to listen to your favourite band. Around the area a huge choice of food places will keep you in strength for this day, from quick take aways to places like Polpetto, specialised in small Venetian tapas kind of food. Step in your Dr Martens or Underground shoes (by the way their shops are just in the area ) and immerse yourself in a rock and roll day. For more information check
