This coming Saturday April 20th is World-Wide Record Store Day!!
"Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally."
There will be cook-outs, performances, body-paints, meet-and-greets with the bands, parades, DJs, and lots more.
Here's a list of some of the local stores that are participating:
Standards Record Store in Vista
Off The Record
The Vinyl Room...all in San Diego
Spin Records in Carlsbad
Lou's Records in Enicinitas
and Gary's Record Paradise in Escondido.
