Record store day

Yesterday was Record Store Day. A day to celebrate the independent record stores.

I’ve used to work in one for years and I still have the fondest memories of working there. It’s so great to be surrounded by music all day long.

Record Store day is the one day of the year that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases are released exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists around the world make special appearances and performances.

I went to check out the record store Tune Up Records here in Antwerp, in the heart of the city center above the magazine store I visit every weekend. I saw the performance of Mauro Pawlowski, an incredible talented Belgian musician who besides playing in bands like dEUS, also does solo work and dozens of side projects in both music and theatre.  Check it and have a great sunday!
