Columbia’s downtown record store Slackers is preparing for their biggest event of the year.
Slackers will hold their annual Record Store Day on Saturday, April 20, 2013, in Columbia, Mo.
Vinyl’s resurgent popularity has prompted Record Store Day into the national spotlight. It is a nationwide event held exclusively by independent record stores.
“There are record exclusives that are put out just for that day,” Slackers manager Kate Passis said.
With limited edition pressings and limited quantities of records available, vinyl enthusiasts are encouraged to arrive early and secure their spot in line.
In addition to record sales, Slackers will also host live music and serve food from SubZone throughout the day.
