Liz Tooley and Lance Barresi, co-owners of Eagle Rock's Permanent Records.
How many of you have a box of vinyl records in the garage? For some people, these black discs aren’t just a scratchy, nostalgic way of listening to their favorite music — they’re a way of life, and since 2007 the third Saturday of every April has been their holiday — Record Store Day.
The yearly event features in-store concerts, meet and greets, and hundreds of exclusive releases by artists ranging from garage bands to Bruce Springsteen.
Off Ramp contributor Joe Armstrong spoke with Chicago ex-pat Lance Barresi — co-owner of Permanent Records in Eagle Rock — about how they will celebrate Record Store Day 2013.
