Calendar of events
We’re committed to providing the best in live music as well as the best in recorded music.
So we put on regular events with live in-store performances from great artists, signings and other exciting events.
Keep checking back, or get on our mailing list to keep informed!
Thursday 5 April
7:30pm – Monthly Music Quiz
Our monthly music quiz takes place on the first Thursday of each month, hosted by our good friends at The Tipsy Pig in Latimer Street, Romsey. The next quiz will be on Thursday 5 April.
The quiz starts at 7:30pm and max team size is 6 people. You’ll need a team as the 80 questions will cover all genres, and some questions (but not all) will be difficult.
Entry is £1 per person, and there will be prizes of beer tokens and money-off vouchers, with all proceeds going to charity. Look forward to seeing you there!
Saturday 28 April
2.00pm – Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman
We are delighted to welcome back two-time winners of BBC Folk Duo of the Year Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman whose new album, Personae, is due soon. So set your diary for a folk masterclass!
Saturday 14 April
1.00pm – Bennett Wilson Poole
Bennett Wilson Poole will be playing live in store at 1pm to promote their self-titled debut album. “Who?” you may reasonably ask. Well, Bennett is Robin Bennett of Oxford’s finest, The Dreaming Spires, and Wilson is Danny Wilson of the amazing Danny & the Champions of the World. In no way bringing up the rear is Tony Poole, producer extraordinaire and king of the 12-string Rickenbacker. Their new album has been described as “an assured, cohesive and above all, thoroughly accomplished musical delight of the highest quality”. For a full review of the album, click here.
Tuesday 30 January
6.30pm – Turin Brakes
The wonderful Turin Brakes played to a packed house to promote their new album, Invisible Empire. They were fantastic! See some more great photos of the event here.
Saturday 28 October
2.30pm – Patrick Duff
We are delighted and excited to announce that on Saturday 28th October we will have Patrick Duff playing at Hundred Records. For those of you who don’t know of him, see him here. Patrick will be here at 2.30 pm – don’t miss him!!
Tuesday 12 September
6pm – Seán McGowan
We are really excited that Southampton-born singer Seán McGowan will be appearing in-store on Tuesday 12th September at 6pm as he is releasing a brand-new EP, Graft & Grief, on silver vinyl and CD.
The 7-track EP features the singles ‘No Show’, ‘Apple Core’ and ‘Costa Del Solution’. Graft & Grief showcases Seán’s lyrical dexterity, knack for penning a catchy melody and laser-sharp social commentary. ‘No Show’ puts zero-hour-contract, minimum-wage drudgery into riotous perspective – rebellion in half-arsed job performance, revenge in furiously-paced folk-punk. ‘Apple Core’ draws gentle echoed gallops while Seán spits lyrics at a pace, a rowdy chorus nailing his unexpected eloquence. ‘Dog Tag’ flows from chin-up confidence to raw honesty, and ‘Clear Conscience’ rumbles with drum rolls under soft guitars. Finally, new song ‘Costa Del Solution’ is a bright, sunny jangle set upon high-street despondency, which twists the cliché of a beach holiday escape.
Graft & Grief is an impressive showcase for Seán’s rollicking full-band set of socially spot-on songs; an insight into realities of being young and musically motivated in modern England.
You can pre-order the Graft & Grief EP here.
Friday 25 August
6pm – Flyte
We are delighted and excited to announce that we have Flyte playing in-store at 6pm on 25 August, the release date of their debut album with Island Records. You’ll hear influences that run from Nick Drake to Mac DeMarco by way of the Blade Runner soundtrack but always, always with their trademark vocal harmonies front and centre. Check out their single ‘Cathy Come Home’ to give you a taste of their sound.
‘How much will this cost?’ I hear you ask – well, it’s free! so come along on and be in on the ground floor of something special.

Last Shop Standing
To celebrate the opening of Hampshire’s newest record shop, Graham Jones brought his live ‘Last Shop Standing’ event to Hundred Records. His comic tales gathered from the record shops of the UK produced plenty of laughs, as he revealed the dodgy shenanigans the record companies got up to trying to hype their records up the chart.
Local folk duo Lantern Brigade kicked off the afternoon, and there was a short pop quiz with fantastic prizes.
