Celebrating Record Store Day in CT


For the past 10 years, artists have been celebrating Record Store Day, an annual celebration of music distributed as physical media. On April 22nd, music lovers can join in on the fun: local stores will open their doors to fans awaiting exclusive vinyl releases from their favorite artists. The release parties will include free goodie bags, live performances, cookouts, giveaways, and limited edition/special releases from over 200 different artists.

Vinyl Street Cafe in Fairfield, CT will be hosting its own celebration. The festivities will begin at 8 a.m. and there will be prizes for the first twenty customers at the door! See a preview of what vinyls their store, and stores nationwide, will be releasing exclusively for the big day:
