Record Store Day Replay

This past Saturday was the 15th annual Record Store Day (RSD), an event celebrated all over the world.

Most Mainers know that Record Store Day began with a conversation and email exchange with Chris Brown from Bull Moose and music industry folks and a desire to celebrate independent record stores like people did within the comic industry. “It is a day for the people who make up the world of the record store—the staff, the customers, and the artists—to come together and celebrate the unique culture of a record store and the special role these independently owned stores play in their communities. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day.”
