Join us Saturday, April 17, 2010 for Record Store Day! It's your chance to show support for Buffalo's longest standing independently owned record store! Stop in to pick up some SUPER LIMITED releases and dig through our bins for a while. Both locations will be hosting a slew of local bands and will have lots of free goodies to give away.

The original idea for Record Store Day was conceived by Chris Brown, and was founded in 2007 by Eric Levin, Michael Kurtz, Carrie Colliton, Amy Dorfman, Don Van Cleave and Brian Poehner as a celebration of the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record stores in the USA, and hundreds of similar stores internationally. 

This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances.

See you there!

“Folks who work here are professors. Don't replace all the knowers with guessors keep'em open they're the ears of the town.” - Tom Waits

“I love the smell of them. I love that people actually care for and know about the music they are selling.” - Neko Case

"Records used to mean vinyl, then cassettes, then cd's, and now downloads. Like currency, they got smaller and are now almost invisible. The record stores were a great network where music fans could listen to what was out there without necessarily having to buy it. But if they did, they came away with a black disc embedded with grooves, mostly enshrined in a cardboard sleeve that contained vital additions to the music inside. These sacred objects (and their slightly less sacred descendants, the tape and the compact disc) were the closest you could get to the act itself: like portable shrines with holy relics.

Now technology and economics are leading away from physical product, and from the sale of records in record stores. Hopefully some will survive as boutique oases where music lovers can browse and meet not just the music but each other. You can't get everything through the post." - Robyn Hitchcock
