Tap Social Special: Record Store Day DJ sets

Vinyl Tap Records and Magic Rock Brewing Presents

Tap Social Special : Record Store Day 2018 (DJ sets)

We’ve invited some of our musical friends and associates to come down to the Tap and celebrate Record Store Day UK with us. Playing records on the day will be :

Hookworms / 3pm – 5.30pm
Matt and Jonny from Yorkshire based ‘psyche noise pop group’ come to play their favourite pieces of round plastic.

Fold / 5.30pm – 7pm
Fold are gaining a solid reputation as a gem in the crown of the Yorkshire music scene. When BBC 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne planned a special broadcast out of Huddersfield’s iconic Vinyl Tap on the eve of Record Store Day 2017 they chose Fold to represent the region in a live session. So we asked them back for 2018 to DJ at the Tap, makes sense.

Vinyl Tap Records / 7pm – 8.30pm
Local legends of all things vinyl, collectively tired from the busiest day of their lives, they come to party with us at the Tap to celebrate this very special day, we love them.

Bodie and Karl Roscoe (Ecklego) / 8.30pm – 11pm
Ecklego came about when three collector selectors, whose passions lie in different musical spheres, banged their heads together and decided to do something regular. Five months on, Bodie, Karl Roscoe and Waka invite friends to play records with them every Wednesday at the bubbling musical hub that is the Golden Lion Todmorden

Arcade Beers – Huddersfield

Situated five minutes from Huddersfield train station is Arcade Beers, and for a bar this small I don’t think I’ve ever encountered a beer selection as extensive. Blink and you may miss the entrance to this place! As soon as you enter you’re welcomed by a wall of bottles and cans on your left and a bar on your right, serving six lines of draught goodness. Chilled beers are also on offer from the fridges. You’re quite literally surrounded by beer here. Continue reading “Arcade Beers – Huddersfield”

Magic Rock brewery & tap – Huddersfield

Magic Rock Brewing sign

One of the joys of heading to Huddersfield is a trip to Magic Rock brewery. Situated roughly 15 minutes walking distance from the town centre Magic Rock is tucked away in an industrial estate, with the unit providing ample space for the actual brewery, a large taproom and outdoor space which is perfect for summer days with a number of street food vendors taking up residence to accompany your fresh beer.
