Record Store Day, started in 2007, is once again upon us this Saturday, April 18th. It’s a great way to support your locally owned independent record store while snatching up some exclusive goodies and maybe watching an in-store throw down or two. Not sure about what live performances are going on this year, but there are some nice little record store day exclusives being released. So go show your support while spending your hard earned cheese, and give that little guy up there something to spin.
Here are some releases worth looking out for:
If you’re in the market for some good cheap art, you should check out The Shiny Squirrel.
The site is a platform for emerging artists and designers that features exclusive limited edition and/ or one a kind pieces. It seeks to showcase the growing market of young talent that need a voice and forum to display and sell their work.
