Record Store Day (RSD) has announced their 2023 list and will take place on April 22nd. Since 2007, RSD has been gathering independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1,400 independently-owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. Festivities include performances, meet & greets with artists, DJs spinning records, and much more! The Orchard will provide 36 releases for the day in an effort to drive traffic to independent record stores.
