Record Store Day

In 2007 a group of music enthusiasts founded Record Store Day to celebrate the more than 700 independently owned record stores in the United States (and the hundreds more internationally).

According to the official Record Store Day Web site: “This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances…Record Store Day is now celebrated the third Saturday every April.”

This Saturday, April 17, just happens to be the third Saturday in April. So, Fargo’s very own independently owned and operated record store, Orange Records, is taking part in the Record Store Day fun.

Orange Records, 641 1st Ave. N., is celebrating the event by offering ten percent off everything in the store (excluding consigned items) starting at 11:00 a.m. and free live music in store starting at 1:00 p.m. They will also feature exclusive Record Store Day 2010 releases.

The day’s music lineup (in order of appearance) includes Lave Proof Boots, Green Green Yellow Blue, OK FOX, The Artbreaker, Cheef, Manchester Bulge, DJ Stupid Birthday and Greenhand.
