Put down that iPodtoday is Record Store Day, the fourth annual event in which indie record stores (no corporate behemoths allowed) across the country shower their most loyal customers with special in-store performances and giveaways. A sampling of events includes an afternoon concert at Other Music (15 East 4th Street, 212-477-8150), where Regina Spektor will perform at 2 p.m. for the first 100 fans to buy her new Record Store Day special release (this show will also be recorded live for a future release), and, over at Sound Fix (110 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-388-8090), folk-rock duo Damon and Naomi will play a set at 7 p.m.
Sat., April 16, 2 & 7 p.m., 2011
