When so many Americans will be camping out at Best Buys and fighting over big screen televisions at Walmart, music fans will be sleeping soundly in anticipation of Record Store Day's Black Friday events.
The now annual day celebrating the stores that once carried the weight of music sales is held each spring, but it has become popular enough that it has spawned a second day held the day after Thanksgiving. Given the notorious nature of Black Friday, it makes sense that independent record stores would wish to participate in the mayhem in their own way.
We'll have plenty of coverage next week of all the event held at local stores, but stay tuned this afternoon for a contest we will post on Rocks Off as a precursor to next week. The winner gets a swag bag full of record store goodies from Cactus Music! Knowledge of vinyl and logos will be helpful, so study up.
