Record stores are more than just places to buy music. They create communities where music fans can browse titles, discover new sounds, and connect with each other. Record Store Day started in 2008 to celebrate the culture of independently owned record stores and the people behind them. Since then it’s grown into an international event with special vinyl and CD releases, live performances, and a designated artist ambassador. This year"s ambassador is Pearl Jam, and the hundreds of special releases include a picture disc of the "Bohemian Rhapsody" soundtrack. Visit your local record store and see what you can discover—today or any day.
