Record Store Day 2011 tomorrow!

Posted By on Fri, Apr 15, 2011 at 3:05 PM


National Party at Your Local Record Store and Completely Blow Your Paycheck From Yesterday and Spend All Sunday With Near-Crippling Buyers Remorse Before and Defaulting on Your Student Loan/Home/Car Payments and Eating Ramen and Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches for the Next Two Weeks and Be Happy About it All Anyway Day is returning tomorrow!

For music people—vinyl heads especially—the annual Record Store Day is a holiday, if not a outright declaration of solidarity with area beatnuts, musos, backpackers and dustbunnies alike. The nationwide event is a huge source for limited edition and exclusive records printed specifically (and in tiny numbers) for Record Store Day customers. Count on your humble Rock Candy music blogger to definitely be on the move...frugally.

Expect live music, deals, food and more at participating record stores across the state.
