Today Is Record Store Day. Go Buy Something.
Saturday April 17th is Record Store Day - a celebration of all that is good about indie record stores and indie music. Record stores are struggling and as convenient as it is to buy music online, we need these stores. They're filters pointing us towards hidden musical gems and gathering places for our tribe of music lovers. Just as there is no substitute for a live show, there is nothing like examining a CD or discussing it with a frighteningly informed store clerk or fellow customer.
Go visit your local record store today. To get warmed up, share your favorite record store experiences here. (Nirvana in a performing in a parking lot? Joey Ramone asking you where the bathroom is?)
