Saturday is RECORD STORE DAY!

What is Record Store Day?

It is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, djs spinning records and on and on. Metallica officially kicked off Record Store Day at Rasputin Music in San Francisco on April 19, 2008 and Record Store Day is now celebrated the third Saturday every April.

One of the great things about RSD is the abundance of limited edition releases and other ephemera that’s available for the music fan.

For more details visit the official site, and after the jump, check out some of the awesome special editions coming out on Saturday at a record store near you.
