RSD 2012: The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

I guess Record Store Day is kind of like Christmas to me: the records are the presents and the record stores with all the music lovers and musicians are like a big family. First I went to buy many of the special releases. After that I went hopping around to see the bands play.

Fortunately the stores aren't really wide apart in Amsterdam, so it was easy to visit Fame, Velvet Amsterdam, Concerto and Record Friend. This way I got to see many bands: after buying a lot of records, I caught one and half song by Face Tomorrow, who were kicking off early, Maurits Westerik of GEM while queuing to buy some more records, Wooden Saints whose individual members were spread all over the country at ten record stores, Houses, Jungle by Night, Case Mayfield, who was doing eleven store gigs at one day, and Bombay Show Pig. Thanks all for great day!
