Join Kirk and Robert to Celebrate Record Store Day
The 15th annual Record Store Day is just around the corner, and to kick off the festivities early, the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles will be hosting a special panel discussion about the history and importance of the annual event on Tuesday, April 19. Join Kirk and Robert, along with other special guests, to celebrate all things RSD and the release of the new book, Record Store Day – The Most Improbable Comeback of the 21st Century.
We were proud to play a major role in the very first Record Store Day in 2008 with an in-store appearance at Rasputin Music in our own Bay Area backyard. We’ve been a part of the event ever since, including serving as Record Store Day Ambassadors in 2016. This year, Kirk’s debut solo project, Portals, will be released on both CD and vinyl on Record Store Day, April 23. Robert’s also participated in several Record Store Day releases over the years, partnering with RSD for the release of the documentary film Jaco, which he produced, as well as the film’s 2016 RSD exclusive soundtrack album. And most recently, the RSD Exclusive release of Infectious Grooves’ Take U On A Ride.
The panel discussion will be led by Variety’s Chris Willman and, along with Kirk and Robert, will feature Record Store Day Co-Founder Michael Kurtz and Grammy-nominated producer, songwriter, and musician Linda Perry. The talk will be followed by a special, intimate performance from Nilüfer Yanya.
