It’s the third Saturday of April and as of 2007 that now means only one thing to the music world; It’s Record Store Day! The day was founded by a group of independent record store owners with the promotional help of many artists in the industry they were able to spread the word quickly and reach what is now close to 1000 participating stores worldwide. So get some of your loot together and go support the arts with the purchase a creatively designed album with your favorite tunes to match. Simply visit their homepage and you can search for a participating record store by you. 2011 has a whole slew of independent vinyls to offer this year so we’ll start by throwing a couple of our personal favorites out there to get you started.
