Princeton Record Exchange gears up for National Record Store Day

Old-school sound Record Store Day celebrates vinyl with specials, live music Cruel Noise Records' John Villegas on cassettes and Record Store Day's shortcomings

Those store owners and community supporters created Record Store Day in 2007 as a way of celebrating the grassroots movement that's allowed a once-dying medium to thrive.

Record Store Day will be celebrated across Ireland on April 21.

The vinyl record, it's not just for parents and grandparents anymore as record sales and the independent record store have had a resurgence in popularity in the last decade. You may have to stand in a few lines tomorrow, and elbow through a bunch of hipsters to get what you want, but it should all be worth it in the end.

Beginning on Record Store Day, the folks at Friendly Records in Bristol have decided to make it "Record Store Weekend" with live performances from Snails, Alex Lipinski and Olive Haigh. Transforming into a mini music festival, there'll be performances by acclaimed and emerging artists and all the independent stores are joining forces with the shops, restaurant and market to celebrate. Saturday, all $1 records are 25 cents and $5 records are $2.50.

Record labels use the day to offer limited runs or colored vinyl editions of new or live material, and reissues of old or unreleased material. Wax Trax will be carrying as many vinyl releases as it can cram on the shelves.

More than 450 titles are being released this year.

The day is a celebration of the brick and mortar store, and the atmosphere is festive. The live set Live at Twist & Shout 11.16.07, recorded in Denver, makes its vinyl debut (it was released on CD in 2008). The single will be backed by a recording of "New York poem (for Polly)" taken from the album Useless Magic that will be released in July. While events vary widely by store, a number of artists will be issuing exclusive LPs that will be distributed around the country.

People who bring in a receipt from Twist & Shout Records showing that they purchased a record on Record Store Day, will get $3 off their first pint of 60 Minute IPA or SeaQuench Ale.

Vinyl lovers like McGlothin plan to attend Record Store Day on Saturday at Speakertree at 901 Jefferson St. from 9 a.m.to 7 p.m. Vinyl is not an exclusive club, anyone and everyone is encouraged to come along - with over 500 exclusive releases we don't doubt that you're going to unearth so many hidden treasures, but you'll have to beat us to it (the game is on guys).

Local stores have more than doubled the amount of special release LP's for the day and plan to sell out of majority.

Wu-Tang Clan. You can get the original Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) available on cassette for the first time since its original release in 1993. There will be live bands and deals to be had throughout the store.
