What is Record Store Day? What Happens On Record Store Day?
Record Store Day is held on one Saturday in April every year and was first conceived back in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees in the US as a way to celebrate the culture surrounding independently owned record stores.
Its first official events took place on April 19, 2008 in the US, with Metallica opening the event at Rasputin Music in Mountain View, California – today there are RSD participating stores on every continent.
