Local Melbourne band Big League will be keeping the vibes high with a free live performance from 3pm. The band is also set to debut their new LP Heathen Sound on the day, with limited-edition splatter vinyl available in-store.

Wah Wah Records will also be providing free beer (!), but if that’s not enough to twist your arm, the shindig will also be pooch-friendly, so you’re welcome to tag along and wag a tail with your favourite little buddies.

As with all Record Store Day celebrations, there will be a variety of discounts and sales on all your favourite records, as well as specific Record Store Day titles which are guaranteed to bolster your collection.
