Thinking Outside The Box Store

From Magnet, 2006:

"So you’re leafing through the ads in the Sunday paper and what to your wondering eyes should appear but the new Cat Power CD for $7.99. At Best Buy. This, you figure, is a great thing. Cheaper than iTunes, way cheaper than the $12.99 they’ll probably be charging at the local record store. And look: You can pick up Broken Social Scene, the Arcade Fire and a couple other titles at the same ridiculous price. It’s almost free, and therein, gentle indie rockers, lies the problem......"

Read it all here, then go out and buy a record from the locals.

Record Store Day

April 18. This annual event will take place at your local independent record store. Lots of promos and exclusives and just a good reason to support these guys in down times. C'mon folks, how about picking up a real, tangible album (or cd) rather than send all your cash to Itunes or worse??
