Record Store Day
I really want to like Record Store Day. Great way to promote music and indie brick and mortar record stores. In theory. In practice it really is just “record reseller day.” Chances of you getting what you’d like at the store are slim to nonexistent even if you line up early.
I’m already seeing items resold on eBay and discogs at huge markups. Minutes after stores opened on the East Coast. Kinda defeats the purpose doesn’t it?
The indie record stores get to start a brief feeding frenzy at a corner of their store and be a glorified middle man for a day. Yay?!?
