Record Store Day, the organization, is managed by the Department of Record Stores and is organized in partnership with the Alliance of Independent Media Stores (AIMS), the Coalition of Independent Music Stores (CIMS) and promotes independent record stores year-round with events, special releases and other fun things.
Record Store Day, the global celebration of the culture of the record store, takes place annually in April. But hey … let’s not make Record Store Day the only day you go into a record store … You know the last time I went into a record store? …. Yesterday … I took that picture above yesterday … that is my hubby in the hat … we never walk by a record store without going in …This little gem of a record store was in Normal IL. They have several cool record stores for those Illinois State kiddos.
So make Record Store Day part of your weekend plans.
