Saturday April 22nd we’ll celebrate our seventh annual Record Store Day block party here at Hymie’s and on 39th Avenue! If you have been here before on that day, you know the crowds are gigantic and the music is amazing! For the past two years the food, courtesy of our neighbors Peppers & Fries, has also been amazing! Record Store Day is a national promotional event to support independent record stores and the communities that surround them (their official website is here) — these past six years we’ve been taking the opportunity to also celebrate local musicians by hosting a stage on 39th Avenue in addition to the stage here in the shop. This year we have some of our favorite groups — and some of our favorite people — in the Twin Cities performing! Here’s the list:
The list of special limited edition releases will be announced later in March. In addition we’ll let you know about some of the other things we have planned for the day in collaboration with other businesses along East Lake Street.
