Record Store Day is now celebrated the third Saturday every April. April 20, 2013
The original idea for Record Store Day was conceived by Chris Brown. It was founded in 2007 by Eric Levin, Michael Kurtz, Carrie Colliton, Amy Dorfman, Don Van Cleave and Brian Poehner as a celebration of the culture and “rock-n-roll” lifestyle surrounding over 700 independently owned record stores in the USA, and hundreds of similar stores internationally.
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.
Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, djs spinning records and on and on.
Metallica officially kicked off Record Store Day at Rasputin Music in San Francisco on April 19, 2008 and Record Store Day is now celebrated the third Saturday every April.
Island Guitar‘s Dallas Pennsylvania location, Wayne’s World Music and www.waynesworldtreasure.com have been following and helping grow the RSD movement since the very first year, taking part in the “offering up” of some great RSD only releases as well as a healthy amount of rare collectable hard to find music and music lifestyle collectables – from ticket stubs to guitar picks caught from the front row of some of the best “rock-n-roll” fueled shows in history – from Mozart to Metallica, Alabama to ZZ TOP and everything in between!!
