Record Store Day is nearly here…
Got some more interesting music portrait work coming up.. these bookings and ideas just keep getting better and more interesting !
In the meantime, its National Record Store Day tomorrow !
From the site
“Record Store Day came into being in 2007 when over 700 independent stores in the USA came together to celebrate their unique culture. The UK followed suit and 2013 will see the sixth celebration of the UK’s unique independent sector. This 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 across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include performances, meet & greets with artists, DJ’s, in store quizzes and many other events”.
So.. support your local record shops !
Sure, CD’s and MP3’s are cheap (or even free, naughty) and practical
But you simply cant replace the warmth, resonance, detail and satisfaction from owning, playing and using superior sounding vinyl.
Vinyl is where is started and will continue, keep independent music and shops alive by supporting this cause !
