Chain Reaction Records 8799 West Colfax Avenue, Lakewood Chain Reaction, which specializes in punk and metal, is throwing a Record Store Day celebration from 11 a.m.to 9 p.m. that includes sales on skateboards and select CDs and vinyl. BBC's Danny Pike will be broadcasting live from the store, and for the first time in 20 years all the music from his show will be played on vinyl decks. "When we opened the store, we wanted to create a space where people who love records and music in general could come hang out and talk about music". Hundreds of limited-edition titles will be sold at independent record stores like the Princeton Record Exchange, and special music events will be held across the country in honor of the event. That tradition stuck, and in the years since, artists like Ozzy Osbourne and Iggy Pop have been record store day ambassadors. "It started out about eleven years ago with a small number of limited edition releases just for that day", Daddy Kool Records Operator Manny Kool said.

Ella Fitzgerald. The two-LP set Ella Live at Zardi's, released past year, can be had on jazzy pink and blue vinyl.

As part of the fun, Marsh has a "Spin to Win" wheel that guarantees every customer some kind of prize or discount, including a possible 50 per cent markdown on used records.

Michael Kurtz, the president of a group of record store chains across the US, invited several record store owners to a meeting in Baltimore to discuss the future of record stores among the rise of digital retailers.

"We were instantly exposed to a community of people that appreciate art and vision, and it shaped and molded our view on our local music community", he said.

Ahead of this year's Record Store Day, we've got a list of all our top events we think you need to check out. Wax Trax will be carrying as many vinyl releases as it can cram on the shelves.
