National Record Store Day at Euclid Records, Vintage Vinyl on Saturday, April 19

by

It's National Record Store Day this Saturday, April 19! What does that mean? Well, it's the first-annual event where independently owned record stores around the country and artists come together to celebrate the brick-and-mortar establishment with in-store performances, giveaways and more. Bands such as R.E.M., the Black Keys and Death Cab for Cutie will have limited-edition seven-inches for sale that day only, while Metallica -- natch, they of the anti-file-sharing -- will do a meet-and-greet and autograph signing at a store near San Francisco.

Locally, Euclid Records is celebrating with bands, BBQ, free giveaways and DJs, according to their blog, Lockwood & Summit -- and this post. The band lineup is as follows:

12 noon: The Bottle Rockets 1 p.m.: Farshid Etniko 2 p.m.: Finn's Motel 3 p.m.: Rough Shop 4 p.m.: Dave Stone 5 p.m.: Tight Pants Syndrome

Vintage Vinyl will also be having guest DJs -- including members of Stars, New Pornographers and the Cops, all in town on Saturday -- and artists performing outside, such as the Monads and Gringo Star. Check out the fancy flyer after the jump. (Conflict of interest: Yeah, I'm DJ'ing for half an hour. Expect the usual.)
