Music lovers, rejoice! It’s Record Store Day this Saturday, the annual event where you get to show your support for your favourite local music store. Stop by one the fantastic Toronto emporiums listed below to pick up some great new releases (TV On The Radio, Panda Bear, Vivian Girls, anyone?) or an old favourite. In the words of Rotate This!, “Get your record mittens on, folks. It’s gonna be a doozy.” And it’s not just all about buying. Sonic Boom has performances happening from 1 o’clock onwards, from the likes of Zeus, The Wooden Sky, and more. See you there!
