Record Store Day in Tampa Bay: Giveaways, deals, free concerts and more
Record Store Day is Saturday, which means the Tampa Bay area's dozen or so indie record shops will be buzzing with lines of people queued up to snag limited releases, catch a concert, even cop a free beer or two.
Since 2008, Record Store Day has become a day of celebration across the Tampa Bay music scene. This year, you'll find full days of music at Mojo Books and Records, Microgroove, Planet Retro and elsewhere, and discounts and giveaways almost everywhere else.
"It's like a big great party, a special thing that you can do with your customers and the local music community," said Melanie Cade, co-owner of Mojo, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary on Record Store Day. "It's a celebration of record store culture."
