Happy Record Store Day!

16 Apr

When was the last time you were actually in a record store?

I buy all my music on iTunes now, but today is the day to go to your old favorite independently owned record store and buy a record.

Record Store Day is a relatively new holiday, founded because of an idea by Chris Brown in 2007.

You can go to Record Store Day’s official website to find a list of stores near you that are participating.  At the website, you can also see a list of special releases for 2011, including a 10” LP of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.”

For more on the vinyl culture of Chicago, here’s a link to a video shot by my classmate Lauren Chooljian about the Vinyl Heads Shop on the South Side.
