Celebrate Record Store Day the way all music lovers should: by buying loads of music, then talking about it in the pub afterwards. Two lucky Time Out readers will each win £500 to spend in Berwick Street's six independent record stores, dinner for two at Foxcroft & Ginger, a £100 bar tab at The Endurance and a pair of high quality, minimalist headphones from Danish audio design company AIAIAI. The six indie record stores of Berwick Street, Soho, are joining forces to celebrate Record Store Day on Saturday April 20. Reckless Records, Sister Ray, The Music and Video Exchange, Sounds of the Universe, Black Market Soho and Phonica will be welcoming music lovers to enjoy live bands and DJs, exclusive vinyl releases and a screening of ‘Last Shop Standing’, the official film of Record Store Day.
Each winner will also receive a copy of 'Last Shop Standing' signed by the author Graham Jones and a pair of tickets to an exclusive screening of ‘The Look of Love’, a film about adult-entertainer-turned-Soho-property-millionaire Paul Raymond (played by Steve Coogan), and filmed around Soho and Berwick Street.
