Record Store Day Is April 18! Don't Miss It!

The 2nd Annual Record Store Day will take place on Saturday, April 18th. This event is held every third Saturday in April.

What is "Record Store Day" you ask?

It is when all of the independently owned record stores across the country band together with musical artists to celebrate the art of music. This day will feature special in-store performances, giveaways, sales on CDs and vinyl, as well as new items released specifically for this day.

Where will this event be held?

This event will be held only at independent record stores around the country. This event will not be held at any of the big chain electronic stores (ie. Best Buys, Wal-mart, Target etc.). One local record store, Redscroll Records (www.redscrollrecords.com) in Wallingford, CT will feature 20% off of everything in their store (except Rega Turntables). They will also have FREE goodie bags (while supplies last), plus they will be open special Saturday hours from 10AM to 9PM.

What are some of the "special releases" featured this day?

Some of the items available on this day are rare, one-time-only releases by Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, Bruce Springsteen and many more. There will also be rare CD and DVD releases and Record Store Day only t-shirts designed by the likes of the Grateful Dead, Death Cab for Cutie, Jason Mraz and others.
