Record Store Day 2011 in St. Louis: What You Need to Know About The Bands, DJs and Free Beer [Updated!]

A to Z loves Record Store Day! All of our favorite stores throw parties and hang out, celebrating records over free beer, snacks and lots of live music. (And there are exclusive Record Store Day releases to buy, too.) What could be better?

To help prepare our readers (and ourselves) for this massive day (April 16!), we've begun compiling a schedule of St. Louis-area events. This list is by no means complete just yet, and it will be updated as more stores finalize their plans.
