Don’t forget that Saturday, April 20, is Record Store Day. Independent record shops (like independent booksellers) could be dying breed; don’t let that happen. Stop by your favorite music store on Saturday and buy a few things; let them know you care. Some stores will have exclusive first releases and limited editions not available anywhere else. Who knows, you might find something you didn’t even know you wanted. (Of course, not all stores will carry all releases and some releases will sell out.) So tell your Facebook friends, tell your analog friends, tell anyone who will listen.
