International Record Store Day

The International Record Store day is coming on April 16, 2011! Mark your calendars and get ready to spin those turntables!

The International Record store day is celebrated the third Saturday of April each year. It was devised by indie record store owner Chris Brown and founded in 2007 by Eric Levin, Michael Kurtz, Carrie Collitin, Amy Dorfman, Don Van Cleave and Brian Poehner to honor the age of analogue music. Over 700 indie record stores in the US along with hundreds of others across the world will be participating.

Over the last few years it has grown in such popularity that many indie groups have special vinyl and CD releases exclusively for that day, along with various promotional product releases. Performances, body painting, cookouts, meet and greets, signings, and many other activities will be offered. The first International Record Store Day was kicked off by Metallica in 2008 and this year it will be none other than the world famous Ozzy Ozbourne! You can visit their website to get more information about celebrations near you, or just check out the neat stuff!

    I'd much rather look at the spines of records than compact discs.
