Local businesses celebrating Record Store Day on Saturday

Katie RamirezApr 23, 2017

Recently, artists of all genres have been releasing new music the old fashioned way - on vinyl.

Tempest will give an exclusive preview of a special track she recorded straight to vinyl at Abbey Road Studios to celebrate RSD.

For the 10th annual Record Store Day on Saturday, why not go to the only true record store left standing in Lincoln Park proper?

Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding almost 1,400 independently-owned record stores in the USA and thousands of others internationally, the website says.

Brown from Maine-based Bull Moose music hatched the idea for Record Store Day, the annual event to celebrate local record stores.

Queues are expected as customers vie to secure copies of the usual limited edition releases, while many stores are planning special events to add to the atmosphere.

"There is something quite evocative about being in a record shop", he said. "Although we did get an email...from a science team that is stationed there saying, basically, 'Look, we're not a record store, but we want to let you know that we have a turntable here in Antarctica, and we are gonna be spinning records in celebration of Record Store Day'".

Electric Kitsch has participated in the event, including Record Store Black Friday, since their first full year of operation, in 2013.

First launched in 2008, RSD has achieved holiday status among audiophiles and everyday music fans alike; its astonishing success over the last decade has seen industry-wide physical sales enjoy consistent year-over-year growth on the day of RSD's observance. "Then we get to hang out with customers and friends".

Sweet Melissa Records owner Jim Kumpe, said the day is about more than just making extra vinyl sales. They're referred to as 'flippers, ' and they betray what Record Store Day is supposed to be about, says Keyes.

Records are booming with the vinyl revival, and Dave's Records has benefited. So don't expect to be able to buy an exclusive online in the weeks following Record Store Day.

"For those people who are really interested in underground music and aren't going to line up around the block to buy some limited U2 atrocity, this is for us", he said.

Johnny Marr criticised "eBay tossers" re-selling his Record Store Day release for an inflated price back in 2015.

Avenged Sevenfold will be releasing a two-LP picture disc edition of their 2003 sophomore album Waking the Fallen.

Sifuentes said as soon as he bought his record player, he started a collection of albums and believes vinyl is a unique way to listen to music. For instance, the record could only be sold on Record Store Day.
