HAPPY FIFTH ANNIVERSARY, RECORD STORE DAY! (Pt. 1)

Schoolkids Records in Raleigh, NC, celebrates
with a multi-band bash, plus a list of titles being featured this year.

 

 

BY THE
BLURT CREW

 

Yessir, it’s happening this Saturday, April 21, and it’s no small deal – we’re talking Record Store Day of course, and the swag will be
flowing for the annual event’s 5th anniversary. All (or nearly all)
sales are vinyl, natch, and BLURT readers have already been weighing in for the
past week or so, via
our latest online poll
, on some of the RSD exclusives they are itching to
score. Currently that Pussy Galore “Feel
Good About Your Body” 45, the Flaming
Lips
“Heady Fwends” double-LP set and Pete
Townshend
‘s “Quadrophenia Demos Pt.2″ 10” EP are out front in the poll, but
it’s safe to say that a number of these limited edition releases will disappear
pretty quickly this weekend. So whether you’re hankering for The Clash, Captain
Beefheart, Afrika Bambaata/MC5
and The
Flip Side Of Stax Records 1968-74
to scratch your old-school collector’s
itch, or simply angling to be “in” with the “in crowd” via hipstercentric releases
by Arcade Fire, Bonnie Prince Bill,
Shabazz Palaces
and Tortoise,
there will plenty of reasons to line up early outside your fave record emporium
come Saturday morning.

 

Go
here
at the Record Store Day website to download a PDF listing all of the above
releases as well as selected other regional-specific titles. Or go here to view
a drop-down menu of the RSD specials that also includes artwork for most of
them.

 

Make sure you visit the Blurt website tomorrow for Part 2 of
our Record Store Day special – we’ll have interviews from some of the
organizers and musicians who have helped turn this annual event into a
must-attend trans-national house party over the course of the past five years.
Salute!

 

Spend April 21, RSD
2012, With Schoolkids Records & Blurt

 

As some of you already know, we recently teamed up with one
of the longest-running independent record stores in the country, North
Carolina’s Schoolkids Records, as part of our plan for eventual world
domination (or to get as many BLURT staffers in the same room as possible, take
your pick… you think it’s easy operating out of a decentralized virtual office,
then try it sometime). The store is located at 2114 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh NC 27607 and you can also drop by via the Facebook page.

 

(There’s a feature in the current issue of the Independent Weekly about the new/improved Schookids, by the way.)

 

More to the immediate point: drop by this Saturday for
Record Store Day as we will be kicking out the jams the entire afternoon with
some of the cream of regional Tarheel talent:

 

  • Starting
    at 1pm we’ll host the Dexter
    Romweber Duo…
  • That’s
    followed at 2pm by Michael Rank
    & Stag;
  • And
    then at 3pm by John Howie & the
    Rosewood Bluff.
  • At 4pm
    a very special performance will be given by The Chris Stamey Quartet;
  • Then
    wrapping things up at 5pm will be Delta
    Rae.

 

A very special thanks to the musicians who are giving their
time ‘n’ tunes to help make our RSD a success, and a very special advance
thanks to everyone who plans to come out and enjoy the live music.
