When talking with Deadbeat Olympia owner and booker Brandon Rowley, he said that he once met with a 70-year-old Olympia lifer who imparted some wisdom: "Every day should be Record Store Day."

Record Store Day is a fundamentally confounding tradition. Just like every other new holiday, Record Store Day has its benefits and shitty corporate drawbacks. Yes, Record Store Day brings droves of customers to record stores that wouldn't otherwise see nearly as much business during the calendar year. Even so, this is a moment for record labels to really cash in on bands that they've spent the rest of the year taking advantage of. Still, you take the good with the bad, and Record Store Day ultimately comes out on the side of the good, just with the essentially positive effect of bringing people out to buy vinyl.
