To me, every day is Record Store Day. But the official Record Store Day for this year is coming up on Saturday April 22nd, as Austin's vibrant community of record shops roll out a ton of exclusive RSD releases. It's a great day for vinyl hounds like myself to get together and chew the fat over our mutual obsession, and is also the perfect time to start up a new addiction if you're in the market.
I learned a lot from my conversation today with John Kunz of Waterloo Records and Eve Monsees of Antone's Records, including a couple of shops in town that are new to even a well-entrenched enthusiast such as myself! Enjoy below and I'll see you this weekend.
