As we’ve been reminding you all week long, Saturday (April 19) is Record Store Day, and we urge you to turn off Spotify for a few hours, get out of your house and go browse around in your fave indie record store. You might be amazed at the treasures that you’ll find.
And if the River Street Beat Shop in Troy is one of your record store haunts – and if it isn’t, well, it should be – stop by on Saturday afternoon for some FREE live music, too.
The fab husband-and-wife duo of Wreckless Eric & Amy Rigby will be playing outside the River Street Beat Shop at 2pm on Saturday in support of Record Store Day. And our fave Local 518 garage-rock combo the Mysteios will be cranking it up it starting at 1pm. Johnny Mystery, Mark LaRose, Jo Agopovich and Tambourine Girl will be pumpin’ out choice selections from their upcoming CD, Planet Action, and while you’re diggin’ the sounds, you can also pick up a copy of their increasingly rare seven-inch vinyl, “Bustin Up Everything.” Except some jammin’ at the end of the afternoon, and don’t surprised if a special guest or two – maybe Beat Shop owner Jimmy Barrett? – jumps up to join the band for some tasty, semi-obscure ’60s nugget. You have been warned…
