Check Out Good Records' Lineup For This Year's Record Store Day Party.
We literally say it every year at this time, but Record Store Day is one of the most fun things that happens in Dallas every year. And with so many new record shops popping up in the past couple of years, there are now seemingly more independent, brick-and-mortar record shops than ever to celebrate — not to mention the copious amounts of vinyl they peddle.
Still, the mother of them all is generally the combination anniversary party, live music extravaganza put down by longtime Lower Greenville mainstay Good Records. This year's eighth annual Record Store Day shindig, which goes down Saturday, April 18, also marks the store's 15th year in business. As such, they're hosting a mega lineup feature 15 bands and 15 DJs who'll be performing throughout the day as you shop for this year's local and national special edition releases and go to town on free food and booze.
There's some big name gets on the list, too, including OK GO and Steve Earle both of which will be performing at the Granada on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. Perhaps even cooler is the inclusion of John Congleton & The Nighty Nite, which hasn't performed locally since its 2011 debut show at Double Wide.
So we'll see you there then, yeah?
