Founded in 2007 by a gathering of independent record store owners (including Raleigh’s own Michael Kurtz), the first National Record Store Day included Metallica meeting fans at Rasputin Music in San Francisco. Since then, the celebration has spread globally encompassing all genres of music and fandom.
Through a variety of events, record stores across the country and the world hold one day events and promotions.
Celebrate today with these stores around the Triangle:
