It's almost here. Record Store Day #6. Those who love all things vinyl -- the sound, the album covers, even the smell -- will be much in evidence at their local independent record stores on Saturday (4/20) for the annual homage not only to vinyl but to the independent stores who carry on traditions started when vinyl was the only medium for music.
It isn't only about vinyl (but mostly) and it isn't only about buying stuff (although there will be some very cool stuff to buy) -- it's about bonding with people who share a love of music.
