Record Store Day 

When: Sat., April 17, 4 p.m. 2010
Phone: (843) 722-3525
Price: Free
This weekend, hundreds of independent record stores across the country partner up for the third annual Record Store Day. These shops are not owned by corporations. They maintain complete control over their stock, store policies, promotions, and in-store gigs. As indies, they’re all in the same big boat. The original idea for Record Store Day was conceived as a “celebration of the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record stores in the USA, and hundreds of similar stores internationally.” Special vinyl and CD releases and promotional products are made exclusively for the day. 52.5 Records presents “a lyric-inspired art show” in the 16 Penny Gallery with work from local artists, plus a sale with 52.5 percent off used CDs, DVDs, and vinyl, and beer specials throughout the day. Owner Clay Scales and the staff will host an in-store set at 4 p.m. from Company (formerly Ko. and CO.), who recently signed to Band of Horses’ Ben Bridwell’s label Brown Records. See for more. Get that stylus ready. —T. Ballard Lesemann
