Record Store Day. Yes Record Store Day. April 19th, 2008 is the day where you, as a musician, consumer or fan needs to support your Local Mom and Pops Record Store. The stores that will be participating will be members of AIMS, CIMS, MMN,Newbury Comics, and the Value Music Group of Indie Stores.
Here in Orlando that means your favorite Orlando neighborhood record shop, Park Ave CD's. They are a member of THE COALITION OF INDEPENDENT MUSIC STORES.
From the official Record Store Day website:
On this day, all of these stores will simultaneously link and act as one with the purpose of celebrating the culture and unique place that they occupy both in their local communities and nationally.In the meantime drop by Park Ave CD's in Orlando (2916 Corrine Drive) for tickets to shows at the Social, Backbooth, Firestone and more plus the largest selection of Local Music in Orlando. (While you are there, drop off the flyers to your latest show or get your CD in the Local Music section on consignment.)
