An Omaha record store owner replied that maybe it is.

This year, Record Store Day (RSD) celebrates the 11th consecutive year of recognizing music, musicians, and independent record stores worldwide. The tiki spot is offering discounts on its special drinks of the day: the Wray and Ting, with Wray and Nephew overproof Jamaican rum and Ting, a Jamaican grapefruit soda, with a splash of lime ($9 or $5 with a Going Underground receipt); and the Sad Bastard, named for a line from "High Fidelity" - the bar's favorite record store movie - with dark Jamaican and light Puerto Rican rums, honey syrup, fresh lemon juice, soda water and a float of Aperol ($10, $6 with a receipt).

Speakertree has been participating since 2008.

Music junkies are going to be running wild, going to every record store within a 30 mile radius to grab that rare album they've been craving, or a special Record Store Day release. Get out and visit one or more of these official Record Store Day participating stores in Nashville: Third Man Records and Novelties, Ernest Tubb Record Record Shop, Fond Object Records - Downtown and Eastside, The Vinyl Bunker, Mckay Books, The Museum Store, The Great Escape - Charlotte and Madison, Grimey's, Boulevard Record Shop (on Belmont campus), The Groove, New Life Record Shop, Vinyl Tap, and Alison's Record Shop.

Get the record needle ready because on Saturday it's all about the vinyl.

Randy Blake: I'm not because the people who run Record Store Day have made certain that the independent record stores that this was created to help do not get the opportunity to actually get copies of the items on offer.

Darren Skarecky, a third generation Sun Devil and owner of Grace Records in Gilbert, Arizona, chose to open his record store in December after receiving positive feedback from his father, a long time record collector, and 17-year old daughter.

In the past, the store only has released about 50 to 60 exclusive records. The list of the records that will be available Saturday, was, for the first time, publicly released before the stores had to make their orders.

Record Store Day celebrates the unique culture of independent record shops, and is celebrated by more than 200 shops across the UK. They also will have most of those special releases available to purchase.

Ex-New York Mayor joins Trump's legal team
Giuliani had a notable career as a federal prosecutor before he became mayor of NY in 1994, a position he held until 2001. Trump said in a statement that Giuliani "wants to get this matter quickly resolved".

Prices range from $8.95 to $80. "I don't think I've ever been as excited about a list of Record Store Day releases".

Greg Halaway has owned Finders Records in Bowling Green since the store opened in 1971.

"I made a friend, since he was in Durham at the time, go over there and try to get it, but he was in line with the person who happened to find it, so he was stopped", Fisher said.

Though opening a record store may seem puzzling to some, Berg's shop has been well received in Patchogue. Just keep in mind while we can tell you what he's ordered for the store, he might only receive 75 percent of those records... but hey, that's the way the news goes. I think the look, sound and beauty of vinyl is encouraging a whole lot of folk to truly engage with music again.

"It has a tangible quality", he said.

Millennials and Generation Z also have shown an increased interest in records, Gederberg said. You'll find the exclusives and over 500 used LPs; specially-designed T-shirts, Against The Grain Brewery's collaboration beer, Listening Party Pale Ale; and live vinyl sets by a rotating set of DJs who include White Reaper, Rmllw2llz and Night Visions Radio. Even though I've read them elsewhere, I'll buy them to have them. "They make a lot of money off of it".

McGlothin won't be surprised to see Speakertree packed with people for the first few hours Saturday morning. "[Record stores are] not just some place to press a button and get a song, [they are] part of the community".

"We played in Adrian, and the crowd went insane", Question Mark said.
