Today, Saturday, April 17th is Record Store Day, a celebration of all that is good about indie record stores and indie music. According to hypebot.com, “Record stores are struggling and as convenient as it is to buy music online, we need these stores. They’re filters pointing us towards hidden musical gems and gathering places for our tribe of music lovers. Just as there is no substitute for a live show, there is nothing like examining a CD or discussing it with a frighteningly informed store clerk or fellow customer.”
Go to your local record store today and buy something! You can share your favorite record store experience with hybot here!
