When is a record store more than just a record store? When it's also a cafe and community space as well. And when is a stint of scouring Echo & Bounce's racks more than just a shopping trip? When the Woolloongabba spot welcomes everyone in for a day-long open house complete with DJs, live music, art and markets in Jacob Lane.

This excuse to stack your vinyl collection made the move from Fortitude Valley's Winn Lane to Brisbane's inner east in 2022, to a two-storey perch in an old heritage building — and it wants you to drop by during Brisbane Art Design 2023. On Saturday, May 27, you'll browse, listen, buy, eat, drink, hang out and engage from 7am–8pm.

The fun starts over breakfast, including tunes both spun and performed live, plus installations to peer at. Then, from 12–5pm, the community market will span music, art, objects and wearables.

Echo & Bounce's open house will take over its carpark space, courtyard and living room, as well as the store's loft if the weather turns wet.
