April 17 will be a joyous day. My wife’s birthday just happens to fall on Record Store Day this year, so I’m sure she’ll love the Wilco Kicking Television vinyl box set I’ll be getting her. Just what she always wanted!
By the end of the day, I hope to also own these: Built to Spill 7-inch (love the artwork); Telekinesis 7-inch, featuring three new songs; vinyl copy of the new Hold Steady album with screen-printed artwork; Modest Mouse’s The Moon and Antarctica 10th anniversary vinyl reissue … and the list goes on.
I’m not sure yet what’s going on at other record stores in the Valley, but I know Stinkweeds will also have live music and food. Could my wife ask for a better birthday??
