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.
Alexander & the Grapes — “Falling Apart”/”Seeds (Alternate Version)” This 2014 release came out on 300 pieces of “beer-colored vinyl” (at the same time as an Alexander & the Grapes double IPA from Cigar City Brewpub), and a few copies are still floating around in select Bay area shops.
