Record Store Day was meant to celebrate local indie retailers and keep them open. On Saturday, vinyl enthusiasts will squeeze into record shops across the area and scoop up a ton of limited edition records, enjoy giveaways and take in performances from local bands.
Bands that call the Bay area home would be grateful if you picked up some of the vinyl they've put on the shelves, too. With that in mind, CL compiled a list of 20 pieces to look out for on Record Store Day 2018. See the full list here, and listen to music from one of the selections below.
Brother Cephus — Not That Important Seth and Gabe Davis lead their Tampa rock band through an album full of the uncertainty, anger and deliriousness of being a late-20s kid in Trump’s America. One of CL’s favorite local albums of 2017.
