Celebrate Oh Susanna, Indie Record Stores on Record Store Day | Band Buttons Ottawa April 11 2019
Welp, whether the temperature says so or not, there is another sign that Spring is here - Record Store Day is this Saturday, April 13th.
And there is stuff happening all over the world as music lovers are invited to get out and visit their local independent record shop.
This is the annual event that sees indie stores offer special deals and live performances.
Ottawa's The Record Centre is one shop that will be taking part in Record Store Day in a big way.
If you are a fan of Canadian music, there is going to be a special live performance to celebrate the 20th (whoa time flies) anniversary of Oh Susanna's Johnstown release. To mark the milestone, in addition to the live show, the album will be available for the first time on vinyl. Alan Neal from CBC Radio Ottawa's All in a Day will be on hand as well to do an interview.
We made some special buttons for the day, in 3 different sizes: custom 1-inch logo pins, 1-1/2" square buttons and 1-3/4" x 2-3/4" rectangle buttons.
The Record Centre is the kind of place this day was meant to celebrate. It is a gem of a store located in Ottawa's arty Hintonburg neighbourhood.
The shop is run by John Thompson who, prior to opening the store, had been buying and selling vintage vinyl and vintage audio equipment online. In addition to all the great vintage stuff, The Record Centre carries new vinyl too. The selection is not sparse with 1000s of titles in stock and new titles are being added all the time.
