Other Music on Record Store Day 2012
THIS SATURDAY: FIFTH ANNUAL RECORD STORE DAY!!
Record Store Day 2012 is now upon us and we’re just as excited as you are! It’s the once-a-year event in which record shops across the country, and the people who love them, celebrate their special place in modern culture. Hundreds of artists and labels get together in support of independent retailers by creating limited-edition vinyl (and some CD) pressings that are only available at your favorite indie record store. This Saturday, all the participating stores like Other Music will be packed with great new releases, limited reissues and special one-offs, and we hope that you will stop by and dig through the bins with us and join in the fun. (The full list of RSD releases is here — no guarantee of actual quantity and availability.)
Our doors will be opening at 11:00 a.m. and all of the early risers waiting in line will be treated to some hot coffee an hour before, courtesy of our neighbors, La Colombe. Then throughout the day a great roster of DJs will be stopping by to spin their favorite tunes while you shop (schedule listed below). We’ll also have the first release on our new Other Music Recording Co imprint available for purchase exclusively here at the store: Ex Cops’ debut 7″ single “I Am the Lion, You Are the Lamb (Original Dram Session)” / “Millionaire.” So if you’re in NYC this Saturday, make sure to swing by Other Music and any other record store in the city that you can visit, and wherever you are, please give some RSD love to your favorite local indie music retailer.
