Damn the Man - Save the Empire 

Since its creation in 2007, Record Store Day has become an internationally observed holiday, celebrating the cultural impact of a beloved endangered species: independent record stores. Recognized by shops, labels, artists and fans alike, RSD stands as a testament for the continuing love (and relevance) of vinyl and the folks who lovingly hawk it. Now in its fifth year, the annual event has grown from simply a sale of limited-edition releases to an all-out party, amassing everything from live music performances and DJ spins to exclusive deals and free beer. This year’s local festivities commence with massive celebrations at three of St. Louis’ heavy hitters: Apop Records (2831 Cherokee Street; 314-664-6575), Euclid Records (601 East Lockwood Avenue, Webster Groves; 314-961-8978) and Vintage Vinyl (6610 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-721-4096). Packed to the brim with showcases of local bands and DJs, Record Store Day also brings performances from national acts JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound and Portugal. The Man.
