Record Store Day 2012 is tomorrow, Saturday April 21st:
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.
etallica 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.
There are a lot of limited edition releases for Record Store Day. See the official list here.
If you’ve still got a record store in town, tomorrow would be a good time to pay them a visit.
