The 5th Annual Record Store Day is THIS Saturday, April 21st. Independent record stores across the U.S. and the world rally together to offer hundreds of exclusive vinyl and CD releases/re-issues along with artist special appearances/performances. It’s a great day for vinyl collectors and music fans!
This year features releases from Ryan Adams, Arctic Monkeys, Arcade Fire, The Black Keys, David Bowie, Childish Gambino, Leonard Cohen, Foster the People, Jimmy Fallon, Janis Joplin, Kimbra, M. Ward, Ozzy Osbourne, Katy Perry, Bruce Springsteen, Widespread Panic and SO many more. And as usual, The Flaming Lips have a crazy release planned.
