Spin yourself a schedule for Saturday, the big day for music measured by its revolutions per minute. Record Store Day takes place in a number of shops in the Lincoln/Omaha area, and no doubt can be celebrated at music stores across Nebraska. Riffle through some stacks and come away with some smile-spawning scores.
Here's a list of stops to make and releases to pick up:
|Saddle Creek Shop||Omaha|
311 — 12-inch vinyl with remixes of "Trouble," Weightless," Sunset in July" and "Time Bomb" from Universal Pulse.
Cursive — 12-inch vinyl re-release of 2001's Burst and Bloom EP
Icky Blossoms — Babes 7-inch release as colored vinyl, just 1,000 copies. A side is in English, and B side is in Spanish.
The Mynabirds — Generals 7-inch with the title track from the group's forthcoming album. Laura Burhenn did the handiwork of spray-painting and hand-numbering all 1,000 of the silk-screened sleeves.
PUJOL — Reverse Vampire 7-inch as colored vinyl, just 1,000 copies.
