Record Store Day 2011

I am more excited about Record Store Day(RSD) this Saturday than most typical commercialized holidays…ok, all holidays with the exception of that one you drink a lot on…

This Saturday is the day all you wax junkies.  I will be out about about Waterloo seeing what I can find in a sea of impressive limited edition RSD releases. 

The two major RSD releases I am hoping to snag are the Deftones covers album and the Menzingers yellow limited edition vinyl (going to be tough to find).  I am also on the look out for a few 7″ splits including:  Green Day / Husker Du, Mastodon/ZZ Top and Mumford & Sons / Laura Marling.   It is safe to say I will find some other goodies too.

Lucky for me I have great friends in other states who will be keeping their eyes wide open for me for some of these releases.  I am sure they will ask me to return the favor and I am perfectly ok with that.

Music Saves and Blue Arrow Records both will be open at 12 o’clock to engage in one of the greatest days of the year.  Live bands and DJs will be present at both locations to entertain throughout the day.  Good times are going to happen.

I just hope it is not ice cold outside like it was last year.  I was freezing last year and then went to an Indians game after and froze more.  I do love all that is Cleveland and that is why I did it.  It probably did not help that it was just above 30 degrees and I wore shorts and a hoodie…

This yeah, however, I plan on skipping the baseball game.  I do plan on destroying a burrito at Chili Peppers on 185th afterwards though.
