Record Store Day is a celebration of the different groups that make up a record store- the store staff, the customers, and the artists. A very exciting part of the Day is the opportunity that it gives folks to come to a record store and get up close and personal with those who make the music. This year's Record Store Day has a fantastic lineup, at record stores all over the country.
Speaking of all over the country, that's exactly where Mike Peters of The Alarm will be as he starts out in London with a Rough Trade in-store event, heads to Long Island NY for a stop at Looney Tunes, and then finishes his Record Store (Long) Day at Fingerprints in Long Beach! Our first Transatlantic Record Store Day Tour! (More on that here: https://recordstoreday.com/NewsItem/7608)
