Apart from Earth Day, April 22 is also known as Record Store Day (RSD). And this year, the Philippines finally gets its own RSD—today!
If you’re an audiophile, a music fan, a musician, and/or someone who’s just curious to what this whole vinyl brouhaha is all about, swing by Buddha Bar on Kalayaan Avenue today, Saturday, April 22, where the first RSD in the country is happening until about midnight.
ABS-CBN reports “around 24 independent record stores and online vendors are expected to take part in the event hosted by Audio Pilipinas.”
The Late Isabel, Itchyworms, The Black Vomits, Hoochie Coochie Mikkie, and Apartel will be performing at the event, too.
The music/audiophile’s celebration was created ten years ago by indie record store owners and employees. A year later, in 2008, the first Record Store Day took place. It’s been celebrated “on every continent except Antarctica” since then, with the Philippines, finally contributing to Southeast Asia’s celebration this year.
