Record Store Day is this Saturday April 18th, and record stores all across the country will be opening early and vinyl fanatics will be lining up to get rarities and exclusive Record Store Day releases. Aside from all the vinyl you can purchase, there are a lot of shows and performances that will be happening all around Milwaukee. Here are my picks of sets you don't want to miss:
Field Report - 6:00 PM - Milwaukee Exclusive Company: It is only fitting that one of the rising stars coming out of Milwaukee will kick off the Record Store Day performances at Exclusive Company in Milwaukee. Come out to hear songs from the bands debut album as well as their 2014 release Marigolden.
Midwives - Time TBA - Acme Records: Milwaukee punk rock band Midwives stops by Acme Records to play an intimate yet high energy exciting set. The time is TBA but for more information go to the Acme Records facebook page.
The Living Statues - 9:00 PM - Milwaukee Exclusive Company: The Milwaukee Exclusive Company ends Record Store Day with a bang as one of Milwaukee's highest energy and hardest working bands The Living Statues play a set full of songs from their Knockin' EP as well as a handful of new material and other surprises. So there you have it, here are just three great performances you can check out for free as part as Record Store Day. What are some of your favorite memories from Record Store Days gone by?
