Since 2007, Record Store Day has celebrated the spirit of independent record stores. And it just gets bigger and bigger. If you got coal in your stocking, Easter chocolate makes you break out, if your valentine gave you a one way ticket on the adios express, or you just love music, then Record Store day is your holiday.
Record stores throughout Rochester will join in on the fun on Saturday, April 18, with special Record Day-only releases from acts such as Run The Jewels, Gov't Mule, Alvin Lee, and Jeff Beck. There will be a barnload of live bands as well like (just to name a few) The Wayouts and Overhand Sam at The Bop Shop; Alyssa Trahan, Guns, Girls, and Glory, and The Bossa Nova Bradley Brothers at The Record Archive; No Glitter, The Televisionaries, and Drippers at Needle Drop Records; and St. Phillip's Escalator, X The Sky, and A Taste of Evil at The House of Guitars.
