Road Records To Close

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, News with tags , , , on July 14, 2010 by Tickets There

Well, it’s happening again. Today, beloved independent Dublin record store, Road Records announced it will close it’s doors on July 24th for the last time.

After a massive campaign by bands, customers and the proprietors to stop our recession from closing the store last year it seems things have once again taken a turn for the worst and owners Dave and Julie can no longer keep the place in business.

This shop has been at the forefront of the Irish music business for over a decade and today’s news will come as a blow to young and underground acts who’s outlets for selling their music become more limited by the day. In the last year two of Tickets There’s favorite record stores have closed it’s doors and it’s very sad that Road has to be the unavoidable third.
