Get your nimble fingers at the ready...

Whether you’re a vinyl junkie looking to nab some new slabs, or just in search of somewhere to groove with fellow fans, Record Store Day can cause the streets to get a bit liveleh.

As stores across the city open early doors today and get their special stock ready, here’s our run down of where to spend RSD in Notts this year:

What? Records, Dubplates and Radio day [Unofficial RSD] 
Where? The Carousel
When? 9am - 4pm
One of Nottingham’s newest venues opened up just in time, and will play host to Plates’ extensive selection of records, including some exclusive dubplates from local artists. Pop down to get yer fingers dusty, and have a listen to the City Beat Radio DJs who will be broadcasting live from the place all day.

Where? Forever Records
When? 8am - 5pm
Sneak down the colourful Cobden Chambers alleyway and you’re bound to find a gaggle of vinyl heads today. Forever Records is open from 8am, with folk invited to browse its special selection all day. They’ll be posting updates on social media when their specials have all sold out, but it’s sure to get busy, so your best bet is just to head down and get stuck in.

Where? Rough Trade
When? 8am - 11pm
Rough Trade will also be cracking open its doors early, creating its usual buzz on Broad Street. Alongside its RSD 19 titles available to purchase on the music floor, it’s put on a live schedule of acts including Sancho Panza, DMA’s and TVAM to carry on the fun, late into the night.

A big ol’ knees up is taking place at Four Four DJ Academy. A number of local vendors and labels, including Plates, will be selling some of their records here too, so you’re spoilt for choice if you’re looking to fill up your bag with some gems. Once the browsing is done, crews from Quake, Soul Buggin, The Waves, Toe Szyslak and Wigflex will be providing the tunes.
