Record Store Day

It's Record Store Day. The third annual celebration of surviving bricks-and-mortar and mom-and-pop shops offers an excellent opportunity to crank up the Victrola and get back in the vinyl spin of things at one of many participating local stores. Emily Tartanella's story from Thursday's Inquirer explains it all for you, including a list of free bands playing in the area. The biggest and best bill is at Main Street Music in Manuyunk, where the Blood Feathers top a lineup that also includes James Maddock, Roadside Graves (whose "Liv Tyler" video is below) and Exit Clov.

It's Record Store Day. The third annual celebration of surviving bricks-and-mortar and mom-and-pop shops offers an excellent opportunity to crank up the Victrola and get back in the vinyl spin of things at one of many participating local stores. Emily Tartanella's story from Thursday's Inquirer explains it all for you, including a list of free bands playing in the area. The biggest and best bill is at Main Street Music in Manuyunk, where the Blood Feathers top a lineup that also includes James Maddock, Roadside Graves (whose "Liv Tyler" video is below) and Exit Clov.

The official Record Store Day site is here, where people like Jack White say things like: "I trust no one who hasn’t time for music. What a shame to leave a child, or worse, a generation orphaned from one of life’s great beauties. And to the record stores, artists, labels, dj’s, and journalists; we’re all in this together. Show respect for the tangible music that you’ve dedicated your careers and lives to, and help It from becoming nothing more than disposable digital data.”
