Tomorrow : 2nd Annual Record Store Day!

Record Store Day has grown leaps and bounds from last year's initial incarnation. Now, it has become the equivalent of going out and shopping on the day after Thanksgiving, minus the cold, the pushy soccer moms, and the trampling deaths (let's hope...). This year, there are a ton of limited, exclusive RSD releases coming out this Saturday for the celebration, and a ton of others that are just being released in celebration of the day. Check out the list below for the things we think you would care about, or just check out the full list at the RSD website for anything we may have missed.
