Record Store Day - April 17th 2010
This Saturday is Record Store Day. It's a day that celebrates independently owned record stores across the country. Artists and bands will contribute special releases that will only be available at these independent venues.
Last year, My Morning Jacket released a limited edition live EP. It was a 2 vinyl and 1 cd compilation. The closest participating store to me was Rainbow Music & Books in Newark, DE. I got down there around 11am and bought the LAST copy that they had. The guy behind the counter told me people had been coming in all morning for it. We chatted for a bit about MMJ and other music. You won't get an experience like that at Best Buy or Target.
Find one near you and pay them a visit this Saturday!
