Record Store Day LEAD

Happy Record Store Day, music lovers! Today’s annual event was founded as “a celebration of the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record stores in the USA, and hundreds of similar stores internationally,” so I suggest you do the founders proud, check out the list of participating stores in the LA area below, and head out to the one nearest you. You’ll definitely find tons of exclusive releases and promotional products, and some stores are even hosting performances, cook-outs, body paintings, meet & greets with artists, parades, djs spinning records, and so on.

Today is basically Christmas for music fans, so get out and celebrate!
