Record Store Day, and record stores in general. If I went back and added up the amount of cash paid to buy albums, CDs, cassettes and so on over the year for my personal and radio use, I would probably be able to pay off my credit card debt. Instead I plan to add a little more to it on the third weekend in April every year.
This year though, the metal releases and specials for 4/20 are kind of bleak, but don't be afraid to buy other stuff that would typically be on the waiting list any other time. The record industry is floundering, but the music will never die...check the full list on the RSD site!
