Record Store Day 2011

April 15th, 2011

Record Store Day is tomorrow, April 16, 2011, and all of us at Figment would like to urge you to take the time to search out a local record store, pay them a visit, and buy an album.  Why?  So they don’t suffer the same fate as these record stores!

With independently own record stores closing left and right, Record Store Day is a chance for these stores to team up with artists to celebrate music.  Many of these stores will be selling special Record Store Day releases from your favorite artists as well as holding special events, like in-store performances, record signings, etc.  So check out your local store’s website or visit RecordStoreDay.com to find your local store and check out what’s happening.

If you don’t have a local store or can’t make it there tomorrow, please take the time to visit an independent record store website, like the one run by our good friends at Stinkweeds!  They’ll be happy to sell you a record without you having to leave the comfort of your own home.

Regardless of how you do it, let’s get out tomorrow and support indy record stores and artists.  Not only will it keep music alive in our communities, but we’ll all go home with some fresh new sounds to enjoy!
