Celebrate Record Store Day!

 

This Saturday, April 18th, celebrate Record Store Day at What Cheer? on Thayer Street in Providence! From 10am to 8pm, celebrate with Limited Edition RSD Releases and live music featuring Bob Kendall, the Red Pennys, Sleepyhead and Emma Rome.

 

Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding independently owned record stores. It is a day for the people who make up the world of the record store—the staff, the customers, and the artists—to come together and celebrate the special role these stores play in their communities. Check out Record Store Day here.
