Record Store Day!
Its time to support our local independently owned record store while also obtaining rare goodies for ourselves. Its Record Store Day!!
The music-community celebrates this day on the third Saturday of April each year since its inception in 2008. So that would make it April 20, 2013
coincidentally the other holiday the music community celebrates. Each year participating record stores have exclusive albums available from different artists.
This year the official ambassador is Jack White of the White Stripes and for some lucky shoppers a copy of Elephant is being released on a vinyl w/ black and red stripes on one side and white on the flip side. In the past other artists have released 7” vinyls usually capping out at 1000 copies.
It is a great way to create business for these places that bring fans together and help us discover new music. Visit the official website for more info and to find a participating store in your area.
“Damn the man! Save the Empire!”
