Backbeat Books and Music is excited to announce a very special celebration taking place the weekend of April 19 – 20 to celebrate Record Store Day and our 1rst re-birthday!
Saturday, April 19th is Record Store Day – a world-renowned day that promotes and celebrates the unique culture of record stores and the special role independently owned stores play in their communities. This culture encompasses the staff, customers and artists who all contribute to its success. Albums that are issued on Record Store Day are not made available to big-box retailers; they are distributed only to independently owned record stores, which encourages and promotes local shopping. Backbeat has ordered literally hundreds of albums, making for a very special shopping opportunity for both locals and tourists in our community.
This weekend is extra-special for us in that it coincides with our shop’s “re-birthday” on Sunday, April 20th – the day we took over the shop from the previous owner, so we’re turning it into a real party and throwing a free concert here at the shop featuring well-known local musicians.
This is an open event which we’re hoping will attract some local attention on Wilson Street. We’d love it if you are able to come by and celebrate with us!
