Record Store Day Eve - 2013
I plan on starting up at Vintage Vinyl in Fords NJ. Not sure how early I'll be lining up, but certainly before they open. They'll be opening early enough where, as long as I get in and out quickly, I should be able to hit up a 2nd store after that. Store number 2 will be the Princeton Record Exchange, which is in Princeton (no shock there). I've only been to Princeton for Record Store Day once previously, but it was later in the morning after their stock had been picked pretty clean. I'm hopeful there will be more variety this time out.
As far as records go, there's a lot to buy, that's for sure. First and foremost are the 2 Rocket From The Crypt LP reissues, Group Sounds & Live From Camp X-Ray. From the picture I've seen, some pretty awesome looking colored vinyl. Other record I'm hopeful to find include the Giant Henry LP (Pre-Unwound), Superchunk 7", Thermals 7", Zombies LP and the elusive yearly Trouble In Mind compilation 7". That's not everything, but it's what I'm most excited for.
I'll be posting a lot on twitter during the day, so follow along if you are interested or avoid me like the plague if you are not. Then I'll have quite a few more records to write about in the upcoming weeks, and that's always a fun thing.
