A launch party at Margate’s newest record store and music venue attracted hundreds of vinyl enthusiasts on Thursday (August 30).
Elsewhere at 21-22 The Centre opened its doors following a successful crowdfunder campaign.
The public are now able to use the ground floor cafe and bar and browse through a selection of new and used vinyl that champions a range of genres from up and coming indie artists to psychedelia, metal, folk, pop-punk, world music, disco and more.
The second-hand section is being provided by Coast Vinyl.
The basement live music space is expected to be ready for opening later this month. The shop will also host intimate ‘in-store’ events and signings.
The brainchild of previously Canterbury-based record store Monkey Boy Records and Margate music promoters Art’s Cool, plans for Elsewhere were announced at the beginning of July alongside details of a crowdfunding campaign.
The campaign received a warm reception with donations of money totalling over £3,600, time or skills.
