Today is Record Store Day!
It's a gorgeous Saturday in NYC so PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE get out and support Record Store Day!
You can get the whole scoop at recordstoreday.com but basically it's a day to celebrate getting out to the store and buying music the old fashioned way so that we don't loose the Mom and Pop stores that actually care about music.
Do we want to be left with nothing but Best Buy? (Ewwwww, right!)
So, take the day and get out with your friends and join some artists in supporting your local record retailer - you know that favorite spot where you can get lost for a couple of hours sorting through the stacks looking for some rare b-sides or live albums.
Regina Spektor is going to be hitting up Sound Fix in Brooklyn and a host of artists including members of Grizzly Bear and Tapes "n Tapes will be DJing the day away at Other Music in Manhattan.
See you there!!
