Record Store Day might only come once a year, but every second Saturday of each month, Brisbane gets into the spirit of the occasion. That's when a treasure trove of vinyl descends upon West End in the stuff collectors' dreams are made of. The West End Record Fair is the type of event that gives aficionados reason to salivate, deliberate, negotiate, and then spend, spend, spend — after rifling through crates and crates of rare material, obviously
With thousands items for sale, the Brisbane Record Fair spans three locations: The Boundary Hotel, the former Hi-Fi Bar and The Rumpus Room, aka 137 Boundary Street, 125 Boundary Street and 56 Russell Street. Expect a smorgasbord of sounds, offering up music of all types, with the next event happening from 8.30am–4pm on Saturday, March 9.
Whether you're after a decades-old gem or something newer on an LP or a 45, chances are you'll find it here. Sellers come from far and wide to share their wares, including private collectors parting with their sonic pearls, and dealers from interstate. And no matter the time of year, a selection from their stash would make a perfect present, whether for someone else, or for yourself.
