It’s the most wonderful time of the year for vinyl lovers: Record Store Day. This year’s celebration is Saturday, April 13, making it the 12th annual Record Store Day. Saturday will be a day to go out to support your local record stores, enjoy live music, and dig into those new, used, or exclusive vinyl. Here’s a curated list of where to spend your time around the city for a day of vinyl appreciation.
Dave’s Music Mine
Make your way down on Carson Street in South Side because Dave’s Music Mine will be having plenty of exclusives, sales and giveaways. The shop will be stocking several RSD releases, and the first 50 customers on Saturday will receive a 12th Anniversary Record Store Day tote bag with exclusive posters and other prizes included. The shop’s biggest sale ever will happen on Saturday and Sunday, the 14th – 40% off the entire store! The sale does exclude consignment and RSD products.
In the heart of Squirrel Hill, Jerry’s Records is a goldmine for vinyl. Starting on Record Store Day, Jerry’s will have over 10,000 LPs for $1 until Saturday, April 20. Hours for Saturday are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The Government Center
The Government Center, Pittsburgh’s newest record shop in the North Side won’t be carrying all the RSD titles this year, but a variety of rare vinyl will be placed out to celebrate this year’s celebration. Giveaways, refreshments, and live music will be going on all day as you shop around the city.
