If you’re like me, Record Store Day was something you heard about that day as you were headed out of town, never to see the limited release albums and giant sales on thousands of records. I will not miss Record Store Day this year and I doubt you want to miss it either.
Kicked off in 2007 as a recognize your local independently owned record store initiative, Record Store Day is a day internationally devoted to, “Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products that are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances.”
In conjunction with the annual yard sale, Greenville’s very own Horizon Records is not only participating for the 5th year in a row but is expecting a record breaking sales day. In other words, it’s going to be big. Big records, big sales, big live bands.
Show up at 8am to be the first to put your thumb prints on the limited release pieces. Show up at 1:30pm to catch the headlining band Hospitality.
Head over to the Record Store Day Exclusive Release List to start building your wish list. Just so you know, Gene Berger (owner of Horizon Records) didn’t order the Katy Perry 12”. He said he’s sorry.
