Record Store Day is only 3 days away. Sausage already told you a bit of what’s happening around Texas, but Fayetteville also has a lot on the menu.
Fayetteville’s independent record store, Sound Warehouse, has been around since 1984. Located at 17 N. Block Ave., just off the Fayetteville Square, Sound Warehouse is full of awesomeness. I love that you can catch a live show there every first Thursday of the month, and that they often have local artists exhibits. But what I love the most about SW is the fact that you can walk in there any day and expect nothing short of a great conversation. SW staff is made up of music lovers and musicians, and if you’re lucky you might just walk into the middle of a jam session.
For Record Store Day, Sound Warehouse will carry several of the special releases of the day, they’re getting over 60 titles in. You have to get there early to get your copy. Because they’ll open at 10 a.m., but a line is sure to form early that morning. The music will start at 9 a.m. There will be several bands playing throughout the day, including Cadre, The Banks of Trent Creek, and Jr. SOAPbox. There will be “crazy breakfast drinks” and because I really want to know what makes a breakfast drink go crazy, I will be there early.
Sound Warehouse staff is looking forward to several of the day’s special releases. They put together a list of their top ten for BOT. Check it out.
