In 2006, Newcity published its Indie Record Store Guide, designed to celebrate the precious resource that these venues are to our lives. We must have been onto something because, about a year later, Record Store Day was born, a national event designed to celebrate, to cherish the glories of old-fashioned off-line independent local retail in a sector of the marketplace devastated by new technologies. RSD brings everyone together in the stores, with bands performing, special promotions, etc. As a core element of The Record Store Issue, we’re going to publish a new edition of our Indie Record Store Guide, along with a guide to key RSD events in Chicago.
