I'm so sad. Today is Record Store Day and instead of being able to wander around my favorite record shop I'm stuck at the library working. It sucks because by the time I get off nothing cool is going to be happening. I always have to work when fun stuffing going on.
Anyways, for any of you interested here is some information on Record Store Day...
This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, djs spinning records and on and on. Metallica officially kicked off Record Store Day at Rasputin Music in San Francisco on April 19, 2008 and Record Store Day is now celebrated the third Saturday every April.
I hope that someone gets to enjoy the events of today!
Any of you guy collect vinyls? If so, how many do you have in your collection? I'm interested in know what other people have.
