Behold, the first annual (in theory) Cassette Store Day! Considering the remarkable success of Record Store Day, this sort of event—a slightly (but only slightly tongue-in-cheek gathering with limited-edition compacts for sale from bands like Fucked Up, Animal Collective, and the Blow—might have been inevitable, but among those who traverse the BQE in old autos equipped with only a tape player, it should be greeted in all seriousness. Since there aren’t actually any cassette stores, you’ll have to do your shopping at Silent Barn’s evening Cassette Fair, then stick around for a show ($5 cover) featuring Lame Drivers, Imperial Topaz, Tabajo, and local favs Sleepies.
