Record Store Day is tomorrow April 16th, 2011! This is the one day that all independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. The Head and the Heart will be playing live right here in Ballard at Sonic Boom Records, and we thought we'd join in on the action too.

Bring in your receipt from any of the participating music shops tomorrow April 16th, and we will give you 20% off any full priced items at Blackbird, The Field House and The Blackbird Apothecary* (some restrictions apply).

The original idea for Record Store Day was conceived by Chris Brown, and was founded in 2007 as a celebration of the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record stores in the USA, and hundreds of similar stores internationally. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, djs spinning records and on and on.
