Record Store Day in New Orleans 2016

Record Store Day 2016

This year, Record Store Day is Saturday, April 16th 

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.
