L1/104G Gay’s Arcade, Adelaide 5000

Gordy Boy Records in Gay’s Arcade is the new kid in town when it comes to record stores. To celebrate their first RSD, there will be a special meet and greet with the store’s namesake, the eight-year-old Schnauzer Gordon Bennet. You can also take part in a quiz and enter the draw for a $100 voucher, try one of their tasty RSD cupcakes, or peruse the numerous discounted new and second-hand LPs.
