Music educator Tim Dalton has joined ARIA Hall of Famer Joe Camilleri and Golden Guitar winner Amber Lawrence as an Ambassador for Record Store Day Australia.

At his blog Dalton explained the importance of Record Store Day for music industry and your local community. “There is a misconception that RSDA is about vinyl sales, its not,” Tim said. “RSDA is format agnostic, buy whatever you like on whatever format you like, but buy it from a independent retailer. This is a use it or loose it deal. If people don’t support local independent retailers they will disappear. Indeed with the ‘long tail’ online globalized retailers increasingly colonizing our leisure space it’s becoming even harder for independents to keep the lights on. At the most basic level, when you buy local more money stays in the community”.

Record Store Day will be marked across Australia with multiple events from music retailers. “RSDA is motived around a single day, 18th April this year,” Tim wrote. “This is the day when we celebrate the independent music retailer. Bands, acts and artists release special limited runs of ‘product’ and often perform in store with a real party atmosphere”.

A sample of what to expect on Record Store Day Australia this year is:

Music Farmers, Wollongong NSW:has limited editions, giveaways and live music from Shining Bird and Hockey Day. Music starts at 4pm.

Vital Juices, RedcliffeQLD. Live music from Halfway and The Floyd Family Breakdown plus DJ’s, limited editions, raffles, lucky dips, best dressed prize (last year’s winner sported a black and pink flamingo shirt!), sausage sizzle and up to 20% off everything in store!

Songlands in Canberra It’s all about cute little defenceless and homeless puppies at Songland, Canberra. Take your unwanted CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes, vinyl, cassettes to Songland as from now and they will sell them on RSDA to raise money for the local RSPCA shelter.

The Time Machine: Nambour, Qld. Lots of live music at The Time Machine, plus heaps of vinyl, prizes and giveaways, Performing will beThe Perries,a five-piece from the Sunshine Coast and indie rock band The Scrapes.

Tym Guitars in Fortitude Valley, Qld have a massive day planned, as ever, with lots of stock plus Live Music.
