Music minute: Record Store Day is Saturday

Posted 9:00am on Wednesday, Apr. 18, 2012

Dust off your turntables: Record Store Day is Saturday. This yearly celebration of independent record stores, stocked with special, vinyl-only releases and live performances, has become the equivalent of one-day mini-festivals for stores. Fort Worth's Doc's Records and Vintage and Dallas' Good Records have full days of free music on tap.

Beginning at 1 p.m., Doc's in Fort Worth has nabbed the Cush, Year of the Bear, Doom Ghost, No Future, War Party, Fungi Girls, Whiskey Folk Ramblers and Stoogeaphilia for its indoor stage (and its first year in a new location, just past Loop 820, off Camp Bowie Boulevard West)

In Dallas, Good Records has a nice mix of national and local acts set to appear on the Astroturf, beginning at 10:30 a.m.: James Earl Alford, Skeleton Coast, Diego Garcia, Joe Pug, Umphrey's McGee, the Ting Tings, Civil Twilight, Switchfoot, Zhora, Glorium, Yells at Eels, Sealion, the Quaker City Night Hawks and Stardeath & White Dwarfs.

We now have a new, simpler way for you to enter and search for events, at listings.dfw.com. As always, when you submit an event to appear online, it will also be available for us in our print publication. But now you can simply enter your event and provide an email address, rather than creating a separate account and registering. Our new listings tool is still a work in progress, so we appreciate your patience as we fine-tune it. Please contact us at hsvokos@dfw.com if you have any questions or concerns.
