Indie music stores are banding together for the second annual Record Store Day, a national sales promotion and celebration of why we love record shops. (Assuming we do love them. But we do, don’t we?)
Claremont’s Rhino Records is participating and the store has plenty of fun stuff planned for the event this Saturday.
Singer-songwrriter Frank Fairfield and tongue-in-cheek band The Eagles of Death Metal will perform live in the store. Lots of special new releases, including vinyl LPs and 45s by Cold War Kids, Iron & Wine, Flight of the Conchords, Jenny Lewis, Springsteen and other acts, and a new 45 by Jack White’s new band Dread Weather, will be available.
And the store will give you 10 percent off on all purchases that day.
Rhino is at 235 Yale Ave., Claremont. Visit its website for a rundown on the special releases and other goodies.
