This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products 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. 2007 was the inaugural year for the event and it's now celebrated the third Saturday every April.

After the jump there's a small sample of what's in store for people tomorrow. * note - stock is ltd, and not all stores will be getting these titles. *
