Hopefully you’re well aware that tomorrow, record stores across the nation, and around the world, will be participating in an event known as Record Store Day. The annual event, which falls on the third Saturday of April, celebrates local record stores. Several record stores in South Florida, including Sweat Records and Radio-Active Records, will be hosting the event, as well as day-long festivals featuring live music. Sweat Records’ SweatStock, will be a free, day-long, event featuring many of Miami’s local acts. Radio-Active Records’ will have Block x Blog that will take place at three different venues inFt.Lauderdale, where tickets are available online.
Every year, labels and bands, put out special releases that are only available on this “holiday”. It would be financially impossible for us to purchase all the releases we’d like to, but we put together a list of 20 items that we’ll consider grabbing this Saturday.
