When I think of records I think of my brother. He’s got a tangible collection larger than anyone I have ever met. On top of his iTunes library being almost 30,000 songs, he has shelves and shelves of records. Varieties of music only the realest of music lovers have. (see picture below!)
Record Store Day is nationally celebrated. It’s for people who like a raw sound when listening to music. You have to own a record player, you have to have the key components, you have to have an affinity for music and not just for good lyrics; but for sound and feel and touch of the beats, the melodies, the moment. I once listened to Lil’ Wayne on vinyl…it changed the game for me…it was incredible.
The only (certified) record store participating in Record Store Day around here is The Sound Garden. This is how they qualify for Record Store Day participation.
They’ll have some rare records available at the store, live music throughout the day, food trucks parked outside to satisfy customers every need, and more!
Tip: They’re open from 10am-Midnight but if you’re really interested in getting that record you’ve been waiting for, or you’re interested in having a large variety to choose from I suggest getting there earlier rather than later. They’ll have a very limited selections of released records for Record Store Day.
