Last week, we brought you news of Tower Records' plans for Record Store Day this Saturday, April 18th. They'll have special offers and live entertainment across the weekend as part of their celebrations.

Other independent music stores in Dublin have also announced their plans.

The Record Spot - which is downstairs in The R.A.G.E. on Fade Street - has a free day-long programme of events on the schedule, with live music from 9am - 8pm from Jet Setter, Myles Manley, Other Creatures, No Monster Club, Cut Master C and DJ Dennis Cassidy. They will also be offering 20% off all vinyl and turntables on the day.

In the evening - after 8pm - The Record Spot will host a gig at Bello Bar in nearby Portobello, with sets by No Spill Blood, Leo Drezden and Princess. Tickets are €10.29 including booking fee, and all proceeds will go to Autism Ireland. 

Meanwhile, the fourth annual Record Store Gay event will take place on Dublin's Capel Street from 1pm onwards. The fourth Record Store Gay compilation will be released on the day, and features a number of independent Irish acts covering pop and disco classics in a lo-fi, charming manner.

Outhouse, the LGBT community centre, will team up with Little Gem Records for a pop-up record store and mini-festival featuring Gar Cox, The Late David Turpin and more acts from the compilation TBA. The party will continue at Pantibar down the street from 6pm - 10.30pm, before The Panti Show begins.
