Mobile Record Store

Posted By Stephan G on June 26th, 2015

With rental prices in Sydney always on the rise, one enterprising artist decided to take his trade on the road – literally.

For eight years, George Pizer sold vintage records and clothes at Pigeon Ground Records & Clothing. The Camperdown store was a two-pronged operation; Pizer oversaw clothing, Tim Barber took care of the records. By the time escalating rents pushed Pizer out to Katoomba in 2013, his interest in vinyl had been decided.

MORE great vendors with shitloads of amazing stock. We’re talkin’ weird, wonderful, rare, classic, new and all other manner of ‘must have’ magic!
Now one for the dorks, Frankie’s Vinyl Fair II is extending the list of collectibles beyond the world of vinyl and into the comic and zine realm. Yep, the pizzeria area will blast out an array of wicked printed material for y’all to feast your 4 eyes on.

AND WHAT’S MORE, is that we’ve been carefully crafting an ale to release especially for the date, and with the sole intention of keeping you well hydrated all day long. No shit! To help mastermind said brew we’ve called on the diabolical minds of our bro’s at Utopia Records, Sydney. You can imagine the greatness that’s in store, and who have we called on to bring this beast of myth into reality? Nomad Brewing Co.!! One of Sydney’s brightest crew of flavourseeking, fresh thinkin’ brewmasters!!
Inspired by the Autumnal season of change, the brew of the day will be a tight, crispy, smooth n’ richly US style Amber Ale – ! A bold blend of specialty malts and seasonal hops. Yes sirree!
Do you need more? OK, we’ll have DJ’s slingin’ the sweet sounds of vinyl pressed rock&roll and a selection of great acts to gander, groove and gasp in awe at also.

FREE ENTRY of course.
Fair from 12, bands from 6.
