You won't be able to buy next week's one-of-a-kind music releases everywhere, but there are two Boise stores and two in Nampa that are planning to hook you up.

We are lucky to have independent record stores in the Treasure Valley.  It's been a rough year for so many businesses, and unfortunately, we've seen a lot of them close their doors for good during the pandemic.  Record stores are still kickin', and browsing through them and discovering new music makes for a pretty awesome weekend afternoon.

Record Store Day celebrates Mom-and-Pop shops and musical independence every year, and artists usually release records that are a tad outside of the norm as a special treat for fans. A load of limited edition vinyl, cassettes, and box sets will be available on Saturday, July 17th, which will be the second of two Record Store Days this summer. The other was June 12th, and Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande had exclusive new releases. 

You'll have a chance to snag vinyl in almost all of the colors of the rainbow on July 17th as you're shopping locally, and we all know how important that is.

Two Boise record stores are signed up to be part of this, according to RecordStoreDay.com, along with two in Nampa.

Other new exclusive releases coming on next Saturday's Record Store Day are posted HERE.  Regardless of what's for sale, it will be another great opportunity to support Treasure Valley businesses and add some cool colors to your vinyl collection.
