The Chicagoan’s guide
to Record Store Day 2012 in-store performances

With Record Store Day 2012 just a few short days away, I finally sat down and cracked open the massive list of official releases. If you haven’t had a chance to peruse it yet, you can download the nine page PDF right here. The impressive list of releases and re-releases are all available in various limited edition runs, and most will be waiting for you in some of Chicago’s best record stores.

Along with all of the RSD releases and standard stock, a number of shops in Chicago are hosting in-store performances throughout the day. Check out the lineups for a handful of stores below, and support the Chicago vinyl scene on Saturday. See you out there!

Dusty Groove will be bringing the legendary Otis Clay to the shop to perform a rare show in their intimate space. The free performance will begin at 4:00 PM on the third floor of 1120 N Ashland Ave.
