Generation Records

Generation Records (210 Thompson St. in NYC) has one of the busier Record Store Days this Saturday (4/17), with live sets from Cymbals Eat Guitars, Black Wine (ex-The Ergs/Hunchback who play April 25th at Mercury Lounge), Walter Schreifels (ex-Gorilla Biscuits/Quicksand) and The Budos Band and DJing from Andrew WK, at 2pm.

UPDATE: Walter had to cancel due to volcano.

Space in the store is limited (to say the least), so getting there early is recommended. Though stores generally can't guarantee which Record Store Day records that'll have in stock, one of the released singles is going to be a Budos Band/Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings split with a cover of "Day Tripper" and from Sharon's new record, "Money." Both Sharon and Budos have some other NYC shows coming up too.

Generation Records is one of many NYC record stores with Record Store Day activities on Saturday. Other Music also has an impressive day planned.

Walter Schreifels also plays a Rival Schools show at Union Pool on April 23rd, and a solo gig at Studio at Webster Hall on May 5th.

Cymbals Eat Guitars go on to open for Los Campesinos on their upcoming tour. Both bands play a sold-out Maxwell's show later on April 17th. And they have an April 22nd show at Irving Plaza, which you can still get tickets for. All dates below.

CEG just wrapped their tour with Bear in Heaven with an April 9th show at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Their encore from that show, all dates and past Generation Records in-stores are below...

How much money is everybody bringing to buy records? I assume splits will cost $5 and full-lengths $10-$15?

If you go, be sure not to step in the cat shit, as the hipster employee's are too busy loathing the customers to pick up.

that cat's always hanging off the records; looks like it's on the verge of death.

that cat in the picture has been dead for at least two years.

"Cats shit in litter boxes, dogs shits everywhere else...."

Actually, cats use Generations as their litter box.
