Record Store Day - support independent music stores
Hi, it's Albert Rodriguez at Seattle Gay News on a beautiful spring morning (just watched a fab Kathy Griffin special on Bravo).
Today is national Record Store Day, when we show our support to independent record stores like Easy Street Records, Sonic Boom, Silver Platters and Cellophane Square - or whatever is in your neck of the woods. It's not that we don't like the corporates, it's just that we want the small retail stores to survive along with the big ones.
If there's a CD or music item you've been waiting to buy, please purchase it today at one of the above listed stores. There are some really great new releases by Neko Case, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Silversun Pickups - or maybe an authentic Seattle record shop T-shirt for out of town friends.
At Easy Street Records today, local rock group the Moondoggies (pictured) will perform at the Queen Anne location at 5pm.
Show your support of independent record stores today, April 18!
