Record Store Day continues to be controversial, but the record stores themselves seem to agree: it's very helpful. Even if you're not interested in the official Record Store Day merchandise, it's nice to drop into these stores and be a part of it, especially when a lot of them are doing their best to make the day fun in other ways. If you ARE interested in some of the official record store day items, you can find a list on the Record Store Day website.

Still recovering from Mardi Gras? How does finding a boatload of records and spinning them all weekend sound to you? The Record Raid is back for a winter show, with 28 vendors and over 40 tables full of vinyl, CDs, cassettes and more. The event is indoors, so rain or shine (forecast says shine), hot or cold (forecast says pleasant)!

Love it or hate it, Record Store Day is significant. Thankfully, there's more to it than pricey limited edition reissues: the record stores themselves have their own twist on it. I'll be making a marathon trip of all the New Orleans area record stores, whether they stock RSD items or not. For a full list of record store day releases, check out the Record Store Day website
