Record Store Day!

April 16th, 2010

All of us Figment wanted to remind you that tomorrow, April 17, 2010 is Record Store Day!  So take some time out to visit your local record store and support it by buying an album!  You’ll be helping to ensure it’s survival at a time when record stores are closing at a rapid rate.  A lot of local stores will be holding special events, like in-store performances, record signings, etc. so check out your local store’s website or visit RecordStoreDay.com to find out what’s happening!

If you can’t visit your local record store visit their website and purchase something.  Independent record stores like Stinkweeds and Vintage Vinyl have their own online stores, so you can support them without even having to visit their brick and mortar store.

We also recommend you check out the book Record Store Days from Gary Calamar and Phil Gallo.  We interviewed Phil last week and we definitely recommend you buy his book!

So get out there and shop till you drop!  Your local record store depends on it!

    Gotta work in the morning, but I plan on heading down to the Fetus on my way home. I might be able to splurge and treat myself to a disc or two!

    The Tower Records that was pretty close to my house became extinct in 2006 and since then I’ve had to pretty much buy all of my music from Best Buy. I’ll definitely have to check out the closest record stores in my local area to see what’s still there

    Ok the local “record store” i went to today didn’t quite turn out to be the record store i thought it would be. Mapquest gave me directions to the nearest one and it turned out to be a residential neighborhood

    I just returned from a glorious week of vacation, but I had time to order an album online yesterday from Larry’s favorite independent record store Stinkweeds. So later this week I oughta be receiving my copy of Aloha’s new album “Home Acres”. Can’t wait! Hope you all had a chance to visit your local record store yesterday, and if not, get there as soon as you can.
