Apparently, I'm into exclamation points in headlines tonight. But this one deserves it. Record Store Day is April 17!
f you haven't heard of this day before, it's a day when everyone should unplug iTunes or your favorite torrent tracker or whatever and actually go to your local record store and buy an album or two or three. That's right albums--as in vinyl LPs. The hope is that you make it a habit and keep some of these incredible stores in business.
I'm actually planning to visit several record stores on Record Store Day, including the mom-and-pop-shop right around the corner from me, Shady Dog Records. Start planning your trip now! Save a paycheck and invest in some vinyl.
