Saturday is Record Store Day! Lotsa loot!

April 17, 2010

Jack White says, “I think it’s high time the mentors, big brothers, big sisters, parents, Guardians, and neighborhood ne’er do wells, start taking younger people that look up to them to a real record store and show them what an important part of life music really is. I trust no one who hasn’t time for music. What a shame to leave a child, or worse, a generation orphaned from one of life’s great beauties. And to the record stores, artists, labels, dj’s, and journalists; we’re all in this together. Show respect for the tangible music that you’ve dedicated your careers and lives to, and help It from becoming nothing more than disposable digital data.”
Saturday, April 17 is Record Store Day. Find a local store near you and go check it out! You’ll be rewarded with loads of one day only specially produced limited edition records–over 150 special issues! In the video, you can learn about a lot of the coolest loot available to those who get there first!

Neko Case says, “I love the smell of them. I love that people actually care for and know about the music they are selling.”

Last year the store my friend Ron Wells went to had bands playing, lots of free posters, and many (if not all) of the special edition vinyl recordings that artists contributed for that special day. Again this year, artists including Bruce Springsteen (with Tom Morello!), the Rolling Stones, Neko Case are contributing to a special issue record. Call around to see which stores are carrying which artists; not every store carries every record. Locally Buffalo Records and Salzer’s are participating but they have different records to give away.

Ziggy Marley says, “Record stores keep the human social contact alive it brings people together. Without the independent record stores the community breaks down with everyone sitting in front of their computers”

More information on store locations, etc:
David and Don Was (Not Was) says, “In the beginning was the record store, more like a modern-day temple with its attendant priesthood and initiates, a holy repository of the culture’s most sacred beats and rhymes. By comparison, the internet is a clean room in a hospital — it lacks the funk and feeling of a place with floors and ceilings and racks full of soul-stirring goodness. May they persist till someone turns the lights out on this small planet! Here’s to the true believers — keep the faith, brothers and sisters!”
