Record Store Day is April 16. That's this Saturday! If you didn't know that, shame on you, you so-called music lover. Stores in and surrounding ye olde Kansas City have prepped for this day for a long while. The following is a quick list of who's doing what.
Love Garden (822 Massachusetts) ua open 10 a.m.-9 p.m.
Spend $50 or more (easy-peasy, we say) and receive 10 percent off your ticket subtotal.
Love Garden record rangers will hand out numbers to folks waiting
outside the building before the store opens at 10 a.m. People with
