A few years ago, some folks were inspired by Free Comic Book Day (coming up the first Saturday in May) and created this awesome thing called Record Store Day - a day when a bunch of bands and labels release limited edition special pressings of records that go on sale on that day to celebrate and support record stores.
Record Store Day is this Saturday, April 16. Numerous record stores throughout the area will be participating, including Celebrated Summer Records.
Also, 10% of what Celebrated Summer makes on Record Store Day is going to be donated to the Red Cross for Japan Earthquake relief.
There will be both vegan and regular donuts available when the record store opens at 11AM on Saturday AM.
To keep up with all the titles they'll be offering, visit the CSR Facebook page where Tony is posting updates.
