Fifth Record Store Day brings a host of local offerings
Saturday is Record Store Day. The fifth annual celebration of independent, brick and mortar purveyors of music has become increasingly popular. Each year, the list of artists contributing special, limited-edition releases expands, and many stores offer sale pricing and live events to remind music fans how wonderful real life browsing of the stacks of wax can be. Sarah Rodman compiles the best local offerings. For a list of participating stores and a look at the special releases go to www.recordstoreday.com.
