What to do on Saturday for Record Store Day

A guide to where to go for lovers of vinyl.

Posted By on Fri, Apr 20, 2012 at 8:17 AM

Record Store Day is this Saturday, April 21, which ought to give many of us something to do Saturday afternoon other than eat too much and sit around and be bored on our day off. On this day, we are urged to buy new records, limited-edition records, other cool items, and see some live in-store performances. Here's what's going on around town:

Vinyl Renaissance (39th Street)

Opens at 10 a.m. In addition to the usual RSD special-edition records, there'll be "thousands of LPs at $1." The shop will be debuting its new performance space, The Sandbox, which I'm pretty sure is that empty area where you walk in? Golden Sounds Records and the Record Machine have teamed up to release a 12-inch (more on that here), and some of the bands featured on it are performing at Vinyl Ren.

Noon: The Sexy Accident
1:00 p.m.: The Caves
2:00 p.m.: Akkilles
3:00 p.m.: The Empty Spaces
4:00 p.m.: Max Justus

Earwaxx Records

Opens at 11 a.m. Nosh from the Magical Meatball Tour. Sidewalk sale. Live music:

11:30 a.m.: Kasey Rausch
1:00 p.m.: The Grisly Hand
2:30 p.m.: A.J. Finney
4:00 p.m.: The Grand Marquis
5:30 p.m.: Expo 70
7:00 p.m.: Troglodyte

Zebedees

From the Facebook page: "We ordered all special Record Store Day Titles. The specials are as follows: $1 off of all New Vinyl (this includes RSD titles). $2 off of each used LP or CD (excluding the Dollar Room). We'll be giving away prizes every 20 minutes, including Gift Certificates, new records, turntables, subway posters, concert tickets, t-shirts, etc."

Love Garden

Many of these records. Also, spend more than $50 and you'll get a credit slip worth 10 percent of whatever you purchase for use on future visits.

Kief's Music

"We're open. We've taken in some big used collections recently, but no live performances, no tweet for a discount, no line numbers," says shop owner Steve Wilson. "People are trying to turn this day into the indie-rock version of Wal-Mart on Thanksgiving Eve. But yeah, it's Record Store Day, and we're a record store, so we'll be open. We've got a bunch of good stuff, so we hope to see some people." Spoken like a true record-store dude.
