Record Store Day

. March 25, 2013.

Some people say Christmas comes early, but for audiophiles that holiday is just Record Store's tardy, unfocused older brother. Every year, bands young and old from every genre join forces with record labels and stores to fill shelves with unique, collectible vinyl—B sides, 45's, LP's, limited color runs and rare re-pressings. This year's Record Store Day Spokesman, Jack White, says Record Store Day is more than an industry event, it is a rite of passage, "it’s high time the mentors, big brothers, big sisters, parents, guardians, and neighborhood ne’er do wells, start taking younger people that look up to them to a real record store and show them what an important part of life music really is." Record Store Day will pump Encore Records, Underground Sound, and Wazoo records in Milan with exclusive material. Be sure to save your pennies and hit all three stores, because no two establishments will carry the same merchandise. For more details, visit www.recordstoreday.com-JS
