ABOUT RECORD STORE DAY:
Record Store Day is an annual event that was created in 2007 and held on a Saturday every April to celebrate the culture of the independently owned record store. The day brings together fans, artists, and thousands of independent record stores across the world. This is a day for the people who make up the world of the record store - the staff, the customers, and the artists - to come together and celebrate the unique culture of a record store and the special role these independently owned stores play in their communities. Special vinyl, CD releases, and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day.
