Here's a stat the recording industry trade organizations always seem to breeze past: People who enjoy free music online get turned on to exponentially more sounds and purchase them in the shops and online. Yup, we fans of diverse music typically have bigger, more diverse music collections than the average listener.
Let's enjoy our free music AND support the artists we discover! Tomorrow is that fabulous international event Record Store Day 2012, gang, and you can bet Team Oddio will be out at our favorite vinyl joints. Support your local music shop!
This is the fifth year of RSD, and as usual, there will be Record Store Day exclusives (pdf) and if your shops celebrate the holiday, there are bound to be lots of freebies, fun stuff, and events. Our regional shops have sent us home with bags of promos, provided free musical performances, offered storewide discounts, and even hosted free cookouts. It's a celebration, so get out there, friends!
