On Saturday, April 16, 2011, independently owned record stores across the country will once again celebrate the culture of the record store with their customers and friends with RECORD STORE DAY! The worldwide event, now annual, and in its fourth year, stands as a remarkable testimony to the dedication, not only of the indie record store owner, but also to the artists and fans that have kept this unique and passionate culture going.
In support of indie record stores and Record Store Day, many labels have created special cds, records, box sets, and more for some of their most celebrated artists that will only be available on April 17, 2010 until they sell out. There are hundreds of these special collectibles, all of which can be found at RecordStoreDay.com.
