Celebrate Record Store Day Everyday!
on March 8,2011 by jared

(But especially Saturday, April 16th...)

This Saturday, the fifth annual Record Store Day hits stores with plenty of sales to keep music fans busy. But there's more to the festivities than just 40%-off stickers and rare vinyl.

Celebrated the third Saturday in April, Record Store Day takes over more than 700 independently owned music stores internationally. In addition to sales and specially-released merchandise, stores offer special programming, from live performances to cook-outs to parades. The event was founded in 2007 to celebrate the art of music.

Locally, several stores are officially participating in the celebration, including Into the Music, Music Trader, Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store, War On Music, Red River Book Store, Planet of Sound, and Argy's Collectibles offer their own events. Head to Into the Music, Music Trader and the Winnipeg Folk Festival music store to catch sets by homegrown talent like Vampires, This Hisses, Scott Nolan, Rambling Dan Frechette, The Telepathic Butterflies, and more while perusing blowout sales.

After the business day ends, the party moves to The Lo Pub where participating stores come together for a night of music courtesy of DJ Hunnicutt and Triunfo de Gato, and the second edition of live music trivia game show.
