Record Store Day 2020 feels like the longest tease ever. The event was postponed twice and eventually split into 3 different 'drop' dates: August 29th, September 26th and October 24th. Each drop date will feature dozens of exclusive RSD titles that were intended for release on April 20th, 2020.
Nielsen just released their year end report on how Canadians chose to consume music in 2018. Naturally of course we skipped right to the vinyl numbers as every record sold at Pop Music is reported to them.
Pop Music is a boutique record store. We pride ourselves in the fact we don't look like your Dad's basement. You won't find dozens of vinyl crates on our floors or dingy cardboard boxes with random records jolting out.
Another Record Store Day is in the history books. While it was only our 2nd one, it was the 12th edition of this annual event that celebrates the independent record store.
It seems like just yesterday when we trotted ourselves over to the Staples in our neighbourhood to pick up this little notebook.
