Record Store Day 2011 Announced

(PR) On Saturday, April 16th, independently owned record stores across the country will once again celebrate the culture of the record store with their customers and friends with Record Store Day!

The worldwide event, now annual, and in its fourth year, stands as a remarkable testimony to the dedication, not only of the indie record store owner, but also to the artists and fans that have kept this unique and passionate culture going.

Since 2008, participating stores have celebrated Record Store Day, and have been supported by artists, who chimed in with resounding in-store performances, special product and supportive quotes and, perhaps most importantly, the music fans who make it out to their favorite record store and take advantage of all the big day has to offer.

The impact and success of Record Store Day has proven more profound with each passing year, 2010 boasting unprecedented sales figures: the more than 1,400 participating stores worldwide having trumped the previous Saturday by more than 100% with sales of special and exclusive product and merchandise and prompting Chief Organizer Michael Kurtz's very rock n' roll (but very true within context) quote, "Record Store Day is bigger than Christmas!"

Record Store Day 2010 even caught the attention of Saturday Night Live that very evening with Seth Meyers taking a good natured poke at the event on "Weekend Update," not to mention coverage from other worthwhile outlets like NPR, USA TODAY, ROLLING STONE and the ASSOCIATED PRESS, among others.

This year's event will undoubtedly be yet another step up for Record Store Day, and news about special releases, new products, events and more will be coming soon!
