Take a break from celebrating 4/20 and try to remember that tomorrow is Record Store Day! And of course, Sweat Records will be celebrating the event as well as its seventh anniversary with its annual Sweatstock party.
However, if you can't make it over to Little Haiti, remember Record Store Day is about all of our independent music stores. So Uncle Sam's, Yesterday & Today Records, and Selected Records will be celebrating too. Pay them a visit.
But back to Sweat! Last week, Crossfade stopped by the store to speak with Lauren Reskin, Jason Jimenez, and Emile Milgrim about their favorite items at the store and what special RSD releases they most look forward to.
If you've never been to the mini-fest, check out Sweat's How to Sweatstock! guide, which include tips on getting there early if you have your heart set on a rare RSD release, using the bike valet, and not bringing outside alcohol. Also, look forward to a special Sweatstock/RSD tote and an appearance by punk godfather and RSD ambassador Iggy Pop.
