Big Star Records shuts up shop

After 25 plus years in business Big Star Records city store sadly shuts up shop this week.

The iconic store which has been the place to buy music for generations of punters in Adelaide has also showcased many big acts with its basement mini-gigs over the years. The likes of Blink 182, Weezer, The Tea Party and You Am I having all played free shows to the hundred or so punters that could squeeze downstairs.

The closure adds yet another store to the list of independent records outlets in Adelaide that have dropped off the twig since the early 2000s – most notably Uni Records, Verandah Music, Bank St Records, Market Music and Andromeda Music.

All stock is currently 50 percent off until the doors shut for good on Sunday.
