Missed The Record Store Day In Store Concerts? We've Got Some.

In case you couldn't make it out to this past weekend's Record Store Day festivities, there were a litany of awesome in-stores, and not just at Reckless Records. Laurie's Planet of Sound, Saki, Permanent Records, and Record Breakers all hosted live talent as a way to enhance customers' Record Store Day buying experience. But, seeing as no one person can be everywhere at once, there's bound to be stuff missed.

Fear not: Watch Record Store Day in-stores from the likes of local experi-metal band The Atlas Moth, Philadelphia trio Psychic Teens and Chicagoan indie-poppers Minor Characters. If watching a black Colonel Sanders front a conceptual art-metal band is more your cup of tea, you can sample ONO, along with locals gonzo-punks Running and rock n'rollers The Runnies, in a video courtesy of Gonzo Chicago.
