  • Eager shoppers paw through records at Euclid's outdoor tent at last year's Record Store Day party.
Record Store Day, the hippest of all consumer holidays, is once again upon us. What once started as a way to get Internet-obsessed millennials off of their computers and into their local brick-and-mortar record shops has grown into a monster, with all-day parties featuring live music, free snacks and free drinks happening all across town. Oh yeah, and the records — did we mention the records? Scores of 'em for you to score. (Click this link for a master list of RSD exclusive releases.)

St. Louis has more than enough music lovers in town to justify a plethora of RSD celebrations; here we run them down for your commercial convenience. Happy hunting!
