(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.
