This Saturday, April 17th is the 3rd annual Record Store Day – and this year, it’s being celebrated in thousands of indie music stores in 18 countries. Indie music fans will have the chance to pick up limited edition vinyl releases (check participating retailers around the world or in the US), snap up free samples and swag, and meet some of their favorite artists, including some from EMI.
In the US, Alice In Chains will make a rare appearance at Gallery Of Sound in Wilkes-Barre, PA on the big day. The band, currently touring on their just-released album, “Black Gives Way To Blue” (Virgin) will make a pit stop at the much-loved record outpost, at 1:30 p.m. EDT to hang with fans and sign autographs.
If you’re in the UK, check out details on some of the limited edition vinyl that Parlophone is releasing to local shops. Check your local store for availability.
