Rough Trade goes on tour to Paris again!
PARISIANS - WE'RE COMING BACK TO YOU!!!
We're returning to Paris with our spring collection this April to coincide with the 5th anniversary celebration of Record Store Day, Le Disquaire Day, taking place on Saturday 21st April.
Building upon the success of last year’s visits, which saw a hugely successful Record Store Day and a Christmas Store featuring live performances from the likes of Jarvis Cocker, Josh T Pearson, We Have Band and Ed Banger, Rough Trade Shops will again open a temporary (10 day-only) Paris store from Wednesday 11th April until Saturday 21st April, located in the woman's agnès b. store, 6 rue du Jour, Paris, 75001.
Rough Trade on Tour - Spring Collection 2012 will offer a typical Rough Trade edit of only the very best music, vinyl and cd, much of which will be especially released for Le Disquaire Day meaning many rarities that are sure to sell out immediately. Those Rough Trade exclusives will also be crossing the channel and some very intimate in-store events and DJ sets will be taking place from the best acts around.
Just as the Rough Trade Shops in London are much more than simply places to buy music, but are also spaces in which you can see and hear the newest, most exciting bands up close, Rough Trade On Tour will feature live performances and signing sessions. A taste for Parisians of just what a great record store experience adds to a city’s cultural richness.
The full programme will be announced very soon but I can announce that so far appearances from Laura Gibson, The Oscillation and Sea Of Bees will be taking place.
