Record Store Day is an annual event in April established in 2007 to aid declining sales and support independent shops by producing special vinyl releases to mark the occasion. RSD releases have become increasingly uninspiring and unaffordable for fans and sellers alike, so in 2017 we responded by starting our own celebration of independent music and vinyl culture called The Run Out. TRO is a one-day free festival with live performances and one-off vinyl records cut in real time by local mastering engineers Peckham Cuts. The first year exceeded our expectations, with widespread praise from key voices in the UK music press (including FACT, The Wire, and Vinyl Factory).
