Record Store Day Roundup

itemprop

This Saturday, April 18, Record Store Day will be celebrated in independently-owned shops across the country, reminding us once again to close down our iTunes browsers and walk into a real, live record store while we are still lucky enough to have several at our disposal. A handful of local shops will be participating in Record Store Day, many of which are offering exclusive 7" records and CDs in addition to a slew of in-store performances. Here's a rundown of everything you can do locally to celebrate the day.
