Record Store Day 2016

Hey Dallasites! It’s the weekend and we can all rejoice that we survived the week. It doesn’t matter if you were working hard in a dark office, hold up in a coffee shop for hours on end, or hustling from home – we made it to the two glorious days we enjoy more than anything, Saturday and Sunday. If you are anything like me you really take full advantage of what the weekend has to offer with every fiber in your body.

This Saturday just happens to be the coolest Saturday in April with Record Store Day taking place.

This 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. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, DJs spinning records,  and on and on. via Record Store Day

Whether you are looking for today’s hottest artists or just the originators of soulful music, this is the weekend to score some sick vinyl to spin. CDs are cool, but vinyl is in. The age of the record has sneakily crept back upon us and the record stores are revived.

Check out a few of my favorites spots in Dallas that are joining the celebration!
