It’s not an official holiday, but it should be. Record Store Day is officially my favorite day of the year. Last year I ventured out alone, but this year I was joined by Jonathan. It was his first RSD. Hooray!

We went to two record stores — Electric Fetus and Roadrunner Records. Neither of us scored any RSD-exclusive releases, but we did find quite a few gems on the cheap, which is always a good thing.

The above photo was taken at Roadrunner Records. You can see me in the front (grey jacket, red hair) and Jonathan a bit further back (dapper hat).
