record store day 2010


The original idea for Record Store Day was conceived by Chris Brown, and was founded in 2007 by Eric Levin, Michael Kurtz, Carrie Colliton, Amy Dorfman, Don Van Cleave and Brian Poehner as a celebration of the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record stores in the USA, and hundreds of similar stores internationally.

This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, djs spinning records and on and on.

interessant fuer die grazer und wiener unter euch, duerfte in dem zusammenhang folgendes sein:

Obwohl sich der Großteil des Record Store Days am kommenden Samstag in USA und UK abspielen wird, kann man manche dieser exklusiven Releases immerhin auch in drei ausgewählten Läden in Österreich finden. Einmal in Wien bei Substance und zweimal in Graz bei Inandout Records und ein:klang.

Vielleicht sind es nächstes Jahr schon mehr Plattenläden in Österreich, die am Record Store Day teilnehmen. Ihr könnt ja mal ein paar Tipps posten, welche Plattendealer eures Vertrauens dafür geeignet wären.
