Sweet Sounds of Celebration: Today Is Record Store Day
Today is the second annual Record Store Day, and event put together by the Music Monitor Network, the Coalition of Independent Music Stores (CIMS), Alliance of Independent Media Stores (AIMS) and Newbury and sponsored this year by NARM (National Association of Recording Merchandisers). All over the world in over 1,000 independent records stores, people will be celebrating he profound impact indie music retail has had on the music heard today.
One main way that you can get in on the action is to check out the live in-store performances and signings going on today, or just take some time to do some in-person, in-store shopping and help support our local indie music stores. There's a listing of all participating California stores via the official Record Store Day website, so you can plan your day. And, yes, Coachella is part of the action--Record Store Day is running music store at the legendary 3-day music fest in the desert (previously run by Virgin). If you're there, or headed there, or getting used to hearing about what you're missing, know that they have a massive line-up of in-store signing and appearances by folks culled right from Coachella's lineup.
