Saturday, April 19 marks Record Store Day, the annual celebration of independent record stores who’ve been supporting your vinyl addictions since day one.
Since 2008, many record labels, artists, and stores alike offer specials to their valued customers. Artists like R.E.M, LCD Soundsystem, Devo, and Tom Waits are just a few who have participated in the past. If you're a newcomer to this tradition, the event appeals to everyone, from those with punk rock taste to those with an ear for hip-hop. Special releases and live shows make this holiday the most fun for music lovers, so check out our picks for the Philadelphia area.
