World Record Store Day is this Saturday, April 21. Locally-based Zia Record Exchange, which opened its first store in Phoenix in 1980 and now has eight locations across the Valley, Tucson and Nevada, is set to throw its biggest celebration ever as records continue experiencing a phenomenal resurgence in the popular zeitgeist.
Zia is throwing a week-long celebration to keep the WRSD party going, with live music at all locations on Saturday, plus DJs, giveaways, exclusive offers and rare LP releases. Check back in throughout the week for more special discounts and deals. All Zia locations are also collecting donations for the Boys & Girls Club through May 9, and entering donors into automatic raffle.
In honor of World Record Store Day, the PHOENIX mag editorial team picked our favorite albums. Check out our selections below and read on for a chance to win a $50 gift card from Zia Records.
