One of my favorite holidays.
  1. I love music.
  2. I love vinyl.
  3. It truly makes me so happy just being in any record store.
  4. I'm so thankful that there is one in Buffalo.
  5. There used to be a whole slew of different record stores here, but unfortunately over the years they all shut down.
    The economy/loss of value for physical media, etc.
  6. However, one remained.
  7. The glorious Record Theatre.
    They have two locations left in the city. They used to have like 10.
  8. On any given day, I can pop in here by myself and just get lost for hours.
  9. Well for Record Store Day, Record Theatre made a party out of it. There were performances by local bands in the back room, local food trucks outside, and a local brewery was serving their beer inside when you walked in so you had a nice cold one to sip while you browsed.
  10. I'm pretty broke right now, and the last month or so hasn't been great for me.
  11. So I was really looking forward to Record Store Day.
  12. And I wanted to make it like my own little Treat Yo Self™ day.
    I treated my fuckin self.
  13. First, I present to you my record buying shirt:
    This shirt is me AF. I think @nathanveshecco would like this.
  14. Now for the records:

    My fav solo Paul record.

    LOVE this record.

  18. Sam Beam & Jesca Hoop - Love Letter For Fire, limited edition new.
