I look forward to Record Store Day every year! In case you've been under a pile of CD jewel boxes for the last 10 years, Record Store Day, or RSD as some like to call it, is the international celebration of the brick-and-mortar stores that supply us with vinyl music. Each year more and more bands jump on the wagon and give us special RSD collectable releases. And what a list for the 10th Anniversary!
Record Store Day is on Saturday, April 22, and takes place on every continent except Antarctica, with a number of NYC stores participating every year. Check the official Record Store Day website to see which stores are taking part.
