Record Store Back To Black Friday

So, you’ve decided to bypass the Big Box stampeding masses at ungodly hours on Black Friday this year. Awesome! Sleep in, grab a coffee (and maybe your music nerd cousin), because Record Store Day is sponsoring a special event just for independent record shops on Black Friday. The Beatles, Iron and Wine, The Civil Wars, Nirvana, The Yardbirds, and many more will be featured. Check this link to see the complete list of releases, and then check off your own music wishlist (or someone else’s) at the following locales:

*Special Note – Not every store will have all (or any) of the limited releases that are specifically for Record Store Black Friday. It’s first come, first served, so get there early and hit other stores if you don’t find the one you’re looking for. Don’t see your fav store listed here? Check them out, they could still be participating!
