Today was Record Store Day, a day to celebrate independent record stores across the country. I have a thing for indie music stores and have to visit new ones whenever I travel. (Records in Italy are overpriced) DC has a decent amount, but two of the best recently closed (DJ Hut and CD Warehouse). But I managed to run by a few and get some free stuff along the way. Record shops are usually good for photos as well. In this case, Som Records (top) was especially photogenic. Below are older shots from two of my favorite shops, Plan 9 in Richmond, VA and Safe As Milk Records in Roanoke, VA which has been closed for several years now.
