RECORD STORE DAY 2017
at TUNE TOWN
Saturday, April 22nd 2017
9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
630 North Riverfront Drive, Mankato, MN
Record Store Day began with a handful of stores, and ten year's later it's an international celebration! Most of those years have been celebrated by Tune Town, Mankato's only record store, and Minnesota's BEST record store (say sayeth WCCO)! It'll be your Kato area connection for the limited run RSD '17 releases.
Carl, the owner and operator of Tune Town, always kicks out the jams for the big day, and each year it gets bigger and bigger. He also gets the best stuff, and this year the list is jam packed with it. Seasoned Record Store Day veterans have already begun compiling their lists and studying the covers so they can grab the limited run releases from their favorite bands, so you better get started on that!
Keep in mind that this list is always expanding, and there will inevitably be new additions before the big day on April 22nd. Also be sure to check Tune Town's event page for the events that will be going on throughout the day at the store. Shuffle Function will be there playing Radio Roulette and holding customers hostage with the randomly selected playlist, but there will also be a bunch of great bands playing throughout the day. Never a dull moment on Record Store Day!
Last year I shot a short film about the history of Tune Town and the events surrounding RSD '16. It was the first video I had ever made, and I think it shows, but I had fun making it. It is posted below. Take pity on my amateur movie making abilities!
