Confession: I’m not the biggest vinyl guy. I have maybe 8 records and a questionably functional record player. But when Vintage Vinyl offered me the chance to partake in their Record Store Day event, I quickly said yes. Why? Even though vinyl may not be my thing, who can turn down a offer for free beers, free music and fun times with members fo the local music scene?
So even though it was tough to take pictures with a Schlafly beer in one hand and a Cults poster thanks to the Firebird in the other, I managed to still get a few shots from the day for you.
