This Saturday, April 16th, independent record stores in the US and UK will join with artists and musicians across all formats to celebrate a music lover’s national holiday: Record Store Day.
2011 marks its fourth year, and it is already shaping up to be the biggest yet.
Record Store Day features a slew of new and exclusive releases that can only be bought in shops – no digital downloads this time – contributed by musicians specifically for the day.
Most of these records are extremely limited, so while camping outside Amoeba Records might not be totally necessary, waking up earlier than usual on a Saturday might just be in order.
Especially when artists like [lastfm]Lady Gaga[/lastfm], [lastfm]Adele[/lastfm], and [lastfm]Michael Jackson[/lastfm] release new material (only available on vinyl)!
