    Right when you thought you'd recovered from the musical ecstasy that was Coachella, the jams are back, and better than ever — this time for the Fifth Annual International Record Store Day.

    While we've (mostly) all converted to mp3s fore the ease of a download, we've gotta scratch (pun intended) that nostalgic itch, and give some love to our local bricks and mortars. They're the folks who give us that unmatchable tactile pleasure of flipping through stacks while casually listening to a sweet in-store performance. Bigger than ever before, Saturday's Record Store Day promises to keep you getting that electric feel long after the sweetest festival memories have faded.

    Hit the ground running this weekend at our most beloved local shops, and get your vinyl fix with albums both old and new. Check store sites for exclusive RSD releases, sales, performances, and parties.

    Ahem, one last thing — where would music be without fashion? Even mozart had a style (rock me Amadeus anyone?). So, along with some recommendations of a couple of sweet spots to hit around town, we've curated a few of our vinyl faves along with some outfit inspiration to keep you looking and feeling good. Study up, and then peruse the stores, ready to impress that cute music geek at the register Empire Records style!
