When my job told me I would be promoting “Record Store Day” on April 19th, my first thought was “Wait, shouldn’t every day be Record Store Day?” Maybe our world isn’t ready for such debauchery, however nonetheless this Saturday every music fan in our great nation should run over to their nearest independent record store and support the shit out of them.
I will be hitting up both Vintage Vinyl and Euclid Records in St. Louis to see what goes down. Vintage Vinyl is going to have DJ sets from members of Stars and New Pornographers! Euclid will be having performances, a BBQ and tons of free-giveaways!
Vintage Vinyl‘s flyer for the event:
Annie Zeleski from the RFT and A to Z is going to be DJ’ing?! How sweet is that? Also, FREE PBR and Monster? Tight, brah!
