Celebrate RSD at these 904 Shops
Record Store Day –- the traditionally once-a-year infusion of vinyl rarities and reissues into independently owned record stores around the country –– is back. On Saturday, April 23, expect to see more than a few long lines in front of your fave music retailer, as well as a few folks proudly toting a stack of fresh vinyl finds.
If you’re thinking “People still buy records?” The answer is yes. A lot of records. So much vinyl that the relatively small number of vinyl manufacturers are having trouble keeping pace. And in Northeast Florida new music retailers continue to pop up at a steady clip, with nearly a half-dozen shops currently operating in and around Jacksonville’s Urban Core.
With hundreds of reissues, previously unreleased live recordings, unique box sets and eclectic compilations on offer for this year’s RSD drop, it’s a good day to go crate digging.
