Started in 2007 on the heels of the success of “Free Comic Book Day”, Record Store Day is celebrated by music lovers across the United States and now the world. Now in it’s 10th year, hardcore vinyl collectors and music fans alike gather in dank record stores across the country as each participating store throws their own party in celebration of the day. Arguably, one of the best on the country will take place right here in the bay area at Banana’s, who Rolling Stone magazine picked as one of the Top 30 Record Stores in the US.
