Record Store Day
(Of course, I don't miss the dust, the smell of hippy incense, and sharing a spot at the "new music" shelf with a guy whose wingspan is thrice mine. Not much, anyway.)
And this Saturday you can celebrate all that: According to the official Record Store Day website:
"This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, djs spinning records and on and on. Metallica officially kicked off Record Store Day at Rasputin Music in San Francisco on April 19, 2008 and Record Store Day is now celebrated the third Saturday every April."
For those of you in St. Louis (or thereabouts), check out Vintage Vinyl, Eucild Records, Slackers, Apop, and PHONO-MODE for special deals and festivities.
