Record Store Day – Tomorrow, 4/16

This is your final reminder: tomorrow is International Record Store Day. Fabricated to boost sales of independent record shops four years ago, this crate-digger’s holiday is becoming larger than life. There are so many exclusive Record Store Day releases that it’s hard to keep track – especially on vinyl, which is particularly sacred on Record Store Day. All that matters is that tomorrow, April 16th, you show your support at your local record store (Bring Money!) And gather ’round turntables and share stories, the way old people used to do.
