London music fans will be delighted, as today you can get a free vinyl by visiting the Smarty Disc-overy store in Soho. The popup store is open in celebration of Record Store Day and is free to visit. However, there is a strange touch.
Every album in the store will be covered and sealed, so you never know what to select. The idea is to help people discover new music, with the selection including AJ Tracey and Ziggy Stardust. You may end up finding a gem, since there are rare discoveries on hand, and even novelties.
You can go to the official Smarty store pop-up from today, Friday 16 July, until 7pm at 19 Air Street, London, W1B 5AG.
You don’t even have to wait to listen to your disc. There is a listening station and a DJ in the store, so you can ask for your vinyl to be played immediately.
Record Store Day is a national event that will take place tomorrow (July 17) and offers special vinyl releases and performances by local musicians and artists. You can find out if your local store participates in the Record Store Day Site.
Smarty is a SIM only mobile network that has competitive deals; offers 30GB for £ 10 now, for example. You can see how this carrier compares to rivals in our U roundups better SIM only contracts and Contracts only SIM for children.
