Record Store Day (4/22) is a wonderful day, whether you like waiting in line forever, flipping limited-edition vinyl on ebay, or authentically enjoying the experience of listening to music. This is a good moment to remind you to support local brick-and-mortar record stores this year, since they’re run by people in your community, and that $3 used John Cale record isn’t going very far to pay anyone’s rent.
Here is a short list of stores in the Berkshire MA/Southern VT/Hudson Valley NY area. If we missed you, please let us know. We’d love to visit your establishment and exchange money for goods.
Turn It Up! Northampton, MA (also in Brattleboro, VT, Keene, NH, Montague, MA)
Newbury Comics, Northampton, MA (and everywhere : /)
NEW JERSEY (via our NJ correspondent Jill Deegan)
PSA: RecordStoreDay.com also exists, so if you’re not in our home area, look there and SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL RECORD STORE!
