Tomorrow is Record Store Day and as in past years, Music Saves, This Way Out, The Beachland and Blue Arrow Records are teaming together to bring you afternoon of free entertainment. Between 4:30 and 7:30, artists will alternate between the Beachland Tavern stage and the Blue Arrow Records stage with Chin Soda, Extra Medium Pony and GoldMINES at the Beachland and Cheap Clone, John Kalman and Joey Beltram over at Blue Arrow.
Those who are into all the limited ed. vinyl releases will want to get to the street early. Music Saves is carrying a wide selection of Record Store Day releases (see their website for details) and Blue Arrow will carry a smaller selection. Both stores will be open at noon.
Meanwhile, over on the west side, My Mind’s Eye in Lakewood will be opening at 9 AM. My Mind’s Eye typically carries an even larger selection of Record Store Day releases than Music Saves. Between the two of them, you should be able to get most everything you want without even once dealing with eBay resellers.
