When's the last time you went to an actual record store? Like where you
have to walk through a door and can't just click "download"?
Nowadays, a lot of record stores are going under. People don't like to
leave their houses anymore. This Saturday, though, leave your house to
celebrate Record Store Day! Record Store Day's the idea of a number of independent store owners,
who hope to remind us about the fact that because most folks download
their sounds today, record stores as we know 'em are fast going the way
of Beta and major record labels.
This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores
come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl
and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively
for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various
countries across the globe make special appearances and performances.
We will be playing in Seattle at the Silver Platters in Queen Anne @ 2pm. Also performing will be Toadies @ 4pm and Barton Carroll @ 3pm.
Definitely come out and support your local record stores!
