4th Annual Record Store Day

April 18, 2011

On Saturday, April 16 we studious music lovers celebrated our favorite consumer based holiday, the 4th Annual Record Store Day.  Where clothes hogs have Nordstrom’s summer sale, and bargainers have Black Friday, we celebrated in hundreds of record stores across the nation to pick up the vinyl we wouldn’t have boughten on any other given day.  I participated at Deadbeat Records in Moscow, ID and was happy to pick up the recently released The Head and The Heart on wax. Hope everyone picked up their overpriced records on the cheap.  Sadly this day has led me to recall my past hometown record store, Island Records (where I remember buying CDs from all my lawn mowing money) that has since gone under after a Target moved into the community.  So be sure to stick it to corporate controlled record stores and go out and buy from your local joe.  Recently, I watch the short documentary I Need That Record! The Death (or Possible Survival) of the Independent Record Store which is great to check out if you like the little man and guerrilla filmmaking.  Below are some pictures of the line outside of Amoeba Records on Haight of the Save KUSF members.
