Now in its eighth year, Record Store Day keeps growing throughout the St. Louis region, bringing joy to music fans and performers alike. We checked out the festivities April 19, 2014, at Euclid Records, Vintage Vinyl and Apop Records and caught sets from The Minus 5, Brothers Lazaroff, Hawthorne Headhunters and Bruiser Queen.
Hours: Sun 10am-5pm, Mon-Thu 10am-8pm, Fri-Sat 10am-9pm
After 22 years in the Central West End, Euclid Records relocated farther west, landing in the picturesque expanse of Webster Groves. Ten years after that, they moved to a two-story spot on North Gore to give its collection of of vinyl, cassettes, compact discs and LPs more room to breathe. We've named it Best CD Store, Best Place to Buy Vinyl and Best Record Store more times than we can count. Euclid occasionally features in-stores from local and national touring acts and even run their own boutique label. Euclid isn't just known in River City, it recently traveled even further west (and south) to our sister city; that other place where they celebrate Mardi Gras and love fleurs-de-lis: New Orleans. Down in the graffiti-splashed Bywater district you'll find the little pink building full of big sounds.
