A couple of years ago, I was displeased with Record Store Day. While I’m all for the prospect of saving record stores and the music industry and centering a holiday of sorts around the idea of getting folks out to their nearest mom and pop music shop, I’m a rural music fan with no record stores within two hours of my home.

This year though, there was a bit of synchronicity that worked out in my favor in ridiculous luck. This year, I will be in Cincinnati on April 20th to see Death To All, which means I’ll have access to a couple of different RSD participating locations. Lucky for my collection, unlucky for my wallet.
