Record Store Day

The Washington Post - - PLAN AHEAD -

Some may scoff at this 10-year-old event, which en­cour­ages the pub­lic to visit lo­cal record stores and buy lim­ited-edi­tion vinyl: 12” sin­gles by Prince and Jane’s Ad­dic­tion, reis­sues of Th­elo­nious Monk and No­to­ri­ous B.I.G. al­bums, a box with ev­ery Ra­mones sin­gle from 1976 to 1979. Most re­leases are rare, so shops won’t get too many copies. If there’s some­thing you’re dy­ing to have, get to a record store be­fore it opens. Re­li­able re­tail­ers in the Wash­ing­ton area in­clude Crooked Beat in Alexan­dria, which opens at 9 a.m. with free swag bags for the first 75 cus­tomers; Ka-Chunk Records in An­napo­lis; Som Records on 14th Street NW; and Hill & Dale in Ge­orge­town. Lo­ca­tions and open­ing hours vary. When: Sat­ur­day, hours vary. Where: Lo­ca­tions vary. record­store­day.com. Ad­mis­sion: Free.
