And Neal from Som Records, 14th St, NW just south of T, reminds me that Saturday is Record Store Day:
“Record Store Day is the third Saturday of April every year, meaning this Saturday. It was started 4-5 years ago by some independent record stores as a way to celebrate music and brick and mortar record stores. It has grown in size over the last few years and is now the busiest day on the calendar (by far) for most record shops.
This year there are over 250 special (and mostly limited) Record Store Day releases, mostly on vinyl. Som will have over 95 different titles available on Saturday including releases from Phish, Dr John, Esperanza Spaulding, Devo, Common, Luna and many more. Crooked Beat in Adams Morgan will probably have the most titles but Red Onion, Smash and Joint Custody will all be participating as well and are all worth a visit.”
