Yep, today is Record Store Day Australia, so pretty much every hi-fi store and record store across the country will be running special promotions to celebrate. Get down to your local stores right now! You can find out what's happening in your own suburb HERE
This year, for the fifth year running, Pro-Ject Audio Systems is sponsoring this year's celebrations, as the Official Turntable Partner of Record Store Day Australia. 'Pro-Ject has been committed to vinyl from the very beginning, and an essential part of the vinyl experience is the local record store: flipping through bins for a new favourite record or chatting to the resident music gurus has a feeling that shopping online just can't touch,' said Sam Encel, of Interdyn, which distributes Pro-Ject in Australia
As part of the Record Store Day festivities, Pro-Ject is giving one lucky record-lover the chance to win a Pro-Ject Essential III Phono turntable. Entry details HERE
If you live in Melbourne, you won't even have to drive between stores, because there's a free shuttle bus sponsored by The Melbourne Record Club and Ortofon that will travel between a dozen of the city's top record stores. Anyone on the bus not only gets a free ride, but also a chance to win a pair of Nurophone headphones. Bus timetable HERE
