Hard to imagine that Record Store Day is just around the corner again, just a few days away. We’ve had so many great experiences on Record Store Day over the years, and this year seems as though it won’t be lacking at all either. There are many great events happening all over the world, many of which in the greater New York City area. A few notable things would be Mates Of State playing at set at Sound Fix in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, The Great Book Of John playing at Jack’s Music Shoppe in Red Bank, NJ, Portugal. The Man at Vintage Vinyl in Fords, NJ and GWAR and Trampled By Turtles are both playing at Soundgarden in Baltimore, MD (okay that ones not so close, but c’mon, its noteworthy). And you LAers should head over to Origami Vinyl to see The Henry Clay People for your contribution to the celebrated day. We will be making the rounds on both coasts on this day, so keep an eye out for us! And as if all of this great live music isn’t enough, there are also TONS of records for sale that are only available on Record Store Day. Many of these we can’t wait to get our greedy hands on. We’re excited to hear new music from Beach House, Edward Sharpe, Garbage, Grouplove and The Hives on the 7″s that they have coming, and we’re looking forward adding the New Multitudes Woodie Guthrie tribute 10″ to our collections. Sheer curiosity alone is leading us to the Mastodon / Feist split 7″ so we can hear what they sound like covering each other, and last but not least we can’t wait to hear Sara Watkins and Fiona Apple cover The Everly Brothers together. Its no wonder that Record Store Day is easily our favorite holiday. What are you most excited for?
