Darkside Staff RSD2018 picks

Record Store Day is coming April 21! We have a ton planned- live music, food, free beer, and much more fun- and of course, there are the the releases. As part of the record store day celebration, there will be hundreds of exclusive, limited-edition releases going out Saturday upon opening at 9am. They are first-come, first serve (see our complete RSD rules) and of course only available at participating independent record stores.
