Phil Wilcox at Tres Gatos

From his perch at Tres Gatos, the Jamaica Plain tapas restaurant that also houses a cozy but exceptional music and bookstore that he manages, Phil Wilcox spent most of this week getting ready for Saturday.

Record Store Day is a bonanza for independent music retailers and particularly for fans of limited-edition goods that tend to sell out quickly. Wilcox says Tres Gatos will have close to 400 items for the annual event, including vinyl, CDs, T-shirts, and even a cassette (from MGMT).
