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.

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
  • Lynchings hidden in the history of the Hot Springs Confederate monument

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
