Every year vinyl enthusiasts get excited about the special releases especially reserved for Record Store Day! As local record store Blueprint puts it this weekend is "guaranteed to be better than Christmas."
Blueprint Records is an official Record Store Day (RSD) location and will be open Saturday and Sunday from 11AM until 6/5PM with a massive offering of RSD exclusives (over 40 titles) as well as 50% off everything in store! Expect tonnes of new releases, re-releases, and some of your favourite records to be found on the shelves.
Record Store Day was introduced to Lethbridge in 2009. Every year it continues to grow with the support of the local music community.
Your best plan is to arrive early and expect lineups for the first couple of hours! The team at Blueprint Records always does a fine job of handling the massive crowd and making sure to help you find what you are looking for.
However you choose to celebrate Record Store Day this weekend, just remember that everyday can be RSD at your favourite shop! The RSD movement really highlights the possibilities with supporting local shops, supporting musicians, and being a part of a much larger community - and serves as a reminder of how much fun browsing LPs among friends can be. Enjoy this weekend; be sure to give your local record store owner a 'thank-you' for making your community better!
We salute all independent record stores and thank them for their continued service to the community!
