'A Vinyl Affair' - Wellington's newest record fair.

'A Vinyl Affair' - Wellington's newest record fair.

'A Vinyl Affair' is happening next month! It's been over a year since the last record fair in Wellington and with the vinyl revival in full swing and continuing to build momentum, there is a good buzz building around the event. With FREE ENTRY to the public, DJs spinning vinyl all afternoon, spot prizes, not to mention the chance to dig through the crates for the special gem of a record - this will be a great afternoon for music enthusiasts.


Venue and date

The event will be held at the Southern Cross, 39 Abel Tasman St, Wellington on Saturday August 23rd from 12pm - 4pm. The fair will be held in the 'guest room' which is a nice bright and spacious area just off the main bar. The event is free of charge to the public.

Sponsors, spot prizes and DJs

We are grateful for the support of the Southern Cross, who will be donating a $50 voucher as a spot prize. Local record stores Death Ray records, Rough Peel Music, Slow Boat records and Vanishing Point are all donating vouchers as spot prizes.
Local music critic Simon Sweetman (of 'Blog on the Tracks' fame) will be DJing on the day, with more DJs to be announced. Silent Designs and Super Colour print have generous donated their respective design and print services to the event!

Contact details

Anyone interested in selling records at the fair should contact Si White at si@dailyjam.co.nz for more information.

Hard to tell what is more infuriating. Is it the 5.3% increase on the already bloated salaries of MPs, or their pantomime of outrage at being gifted with such a wonderful back-dated bonanza?

As usual, Prime Minister John Key has busily tried to distance himself from the political fallout, even though he happens to be the main beneficiary of the Remuneration Authority’s generosity. Finance Minister Bill English says with a straight face that it would actually be very hard to give the money back...

Even if it were true, it would actually be very easy for English and any other guilty colleagues, to give the extra money away. There are any number of food banks or homeless shelters who would be able to put the money to good use. More>>
