Places to Go:

Other Music

Maybe the quintessential Manhattan record store offers an endless line of ultra cool NYC music people to DJ your real life shopping experience. Hobnob with buzz bands and label heads! Or just ignore them and keep your nose in the stacks!


1pm-2pm Parquet Courts (What's Your Rupture?)
2-3pm Caleb Braaten (Sacred Bones Records)
3-4pm Matt Werth (RVNG Intl.)
4-5pm Scott Mou/Queens (Dial)
5-6m Falty DL (Ninja Tune)
6-7pm Bryan Kasenic (Bunker)
7-8pm Jonathan Toubin (New York Night Train)

Generation Records

Manhattan's Generation Records boasts one of the best in-store performances of the day, by Philly's swell alt-rock band Swearin', as well as Guided by Voices' Doug Gillard, The Forgetters, and Livid, plus a DJ set from WFMU's hilariously grumpy rock-knowledge fountain Tom Scharpling.

Record Grouch


Greenpoint's Record Grouch is taunting us on Facebook already with their blanket full of used, 70s vinyl porn.

Sound Fix

Not so much for special attractions, but because the great Williamsburg record store is closing for good after tomorrow. We should all probably humble ourselves by internalizing the idea that RSD is not a one-day magic save all for the record store business, which needs our patronage, like, all the time. (But once you do that, you can get in on the "Everything Must Go!" feeding frenzy, also.)

Cake Shop

Oh, except Record Store Day can raise stores from the dead, apparently? Never mind, then.
