How are the record stores of the Walrus prepare Record store Day

This year, as a prelude to the Fête de la musique celebrated on 21st June, was held the 10th edition of the "Record store Day". A season that promises to be special because of the health crisis of the sars Coronavirus. The organisers of the event in France have decided to "ventilate" in four important days of the festivities related to the vinyl record : the 20 June, 29 August, 26 September and 24 October.

which is not the case for the United States, the creators of the event, who will be their Record Days across the Atlantic, from the month of August. It was therefore necessary to fully review the official selection of the first key date, by proposing only labels French. "All the orders that we had placed before the containment have been canceled," says Julie David, who stands with his associate Caroline Vinrich, the record store-bar Walrus, located in the 10th arrondissement. Then, we had to replenish our list is based on the new selection and then... nothing has been received." Each day, the manager file to his shop as early as 9 o'clock in the morning "hoping for a call Chronopost."

For the two patronesses of the home of Walrus, that participate in Record store Day since the creation of their new shop in 2014, this new year represents a real risk-taking. Participate in this large event requires putting money in and type it in the box after two months of closure turns out to be complicated. "We are not sure of prot, is concerned about Julie David. Many expect the albums to the Treatments or other international groups and know that they will not have the 20 June. Added to the limitation of the people in the store (editor's NOTE, 10 people max.), it is obvious that this will not be the crowd in front of the store."

Fortunately, Walrus multiplies the pleasures. With its long bar, checkered tiled floors, and chairs of variegated, music lovers come to rummage through the bins of vinyl in between two cafes.

At the bar, the menu offers a wide choice of beverages coffee, juice, and fruit and craft beers. Leah MabilonAvant/after the coronavirus : what is it that has changed ?

With one of its managers in the province, and the other nailed to the bed because of a leg fracture, it is impossible for the Walrus to make sales during the crisis. "We had to use creativity and be active on social networks. Each day, we posted the piece a note of humor, anecdotes about the shop, or memories of concerts, shows Julie David. This has allowed us to keep the link with our artists and with our regulars."

The shop is also famous for its concerts of choice between the show case and release party, which counts among its artists, great names of today such as Father John Misty, Baxter Dury, the Liminanas, or Hanni El Khatib.

So, whether, since the reopening, they follow the hygiene rules to the letter, they hope to quickly return to normal. "Our artists and the concerts we missed, we really look forward to getting," concludes Julie David.
