It's that time of the year again: Record Store Day is back this Saturday and Lisbon record stores are no exception when it comes to promotions, events and special items! So here's what you can expect from our associate shops:
  • Sound Club Store: Multibuy promotions (buy 4 take 1 free) in similar prices, as well as vinyl at €1 and €2.50! And you can always count on shop owner Alexandre Barbosa to play some nasty grooves while you're digging!
  • Discolecção: 20% discount on CDs and 10% discount on vinyl.
  • Vinil Experience: Various promotions on LPs, 7"s and CDs, and also surprise gifts with €50 and €100 purchases!
  • Peekaboo: 50% discount on selected items, and also open DJ booth and beer for customers (check event here)!
  • Glam-O-Rama: Every buying customer will receive a compilation CD, chosen by the store.
Meanwhile, in the non-LRS affiliated shops' camp, Flur will host gigs by UNITEDSTATESOF and Bruxas/Cobras, as well as a DJ set by Beautify Junkyards (check event here).

As always, we'll be updating this list as more information becomes available. Prepare your savings and support Lisbon's indie record shops while expanding your record collection!

Record Fairs: Feira de Vinil de Lisboa

There's a new record fair in town and it's going to happen inside one of the most traditional fairs in Lisbon! The Lisbon Vinyl Fair (or in Portuguese, Feira de Vinil de Lisboa) is happening on the 13th and 14th of April, inside the Sta. Marta Market building, which is exactly in the middle of the Ladra fair area (at least on Saturday the 14th).
Between the confirmed sellers are well-established brick-and-mortar shops like Groovie Records, TNT, Megastore, Peekaboo, Amor Records and Carbono Amadora, as well as several online sellers and collectors. Prepare your cash money: you're going to need it!

Feira de Vinil de Lisboa
Mercado de Santa Clara (near Graça/Santa Apolónia) -> Campo de Santa Clara
April 14th and 15th (Saturday and Sunday), 10:00 to 20:00

R.I.P. Magic Bus

It's with a heavy heart that LRS announces the demise of one of its first members. Magic Bus had been forced to relocate last November from Calçada do Duque to Avenida da Liberdade, and the change was fatal for a already waning business.
Pedro will remain active though, with a online presence in Facebook and Discogs, as well as physically selling records on Lisbon's weekly fairs (Ladra and LX Factory) - so you can still say hello and buy records from him in person! We'll miss that marvellous graffiti on the front of the old shop though :(
