Event Fri Sep 06 2013
Following a handful of years of Record Store Day success, stores around the country are working to bring some notoriety to the humble cassette tape, with the first annual Cassette Store Day, tomorrow. Chicago's only participant, Bric-a-Brac Records & Collectibles (3156 W. Diversey Ave.), is hosting a full day's worth of events, including some in-store performances, merch sales, and of course, cassette tape love with special releases. According to Nick Mayor, the store's manager, they'll feature "vendors including Decibel Audio (for cassette equipment), Mac Blackout (custom painted boomboxes), Plus Tapes, Maximum Pelt, Already Dead Tapes, Notes and Bolts, Teen River, Nihilist Records, Manic Static, Eye Vybe Records, and Tripp Tapes." In-store performances from Todays Hits, Ant'lrd, the Sueves, Party Bat, Massive Ego, the Funs, and Cairo Gang start around noon.
And, um, don't forget your pencil.
