So it’s Record Store Day today, and that means millions (literally) of RSD specials are on sale in participating vinyl shops all over; not least wax-based rarities, one-off collaborations and RSD-directed schemes (the charitable and artsy Secret 7″ initiative and independent label Song, By Toad’s ‘Beer v Records’ showdown).

But wait, save the rifling for later, and first drop those cultural needles on this triple A-side cultural symphony…


Tony Law – Maximum Nonsense, Udderbelly SouthBank, 20 Apr (pictured)
One of the top draws of this year’s Udderbelly festival, mad-Canada-man Tony Law reprises his 5/5-rated Fringe sensation one last time, dialling his surrealist silliness to the max… all whilst mining the meaning of life, no mean feat. Details and tickets here.


The Cave Club, Buffalo Bar, 20 Apr
The Cave Club DJs – The Horrors’ Rhys Webb, Tom Furse and Coffin Joe – spin an oscillatory OST for lovers of 1960s R&B, garage and hypnogogic pop, and Neil’s Children sidle nonchalantly in to play live. Details and tickets here.
