Record Store Day events were in Fort Wayne on Saturday. The day was was created in 2007 to celebrate the culture of independently owned record stores.
Wooden Nickel Records held a big event at their N. Anthony Blvd. location.
The store had sales on records and sold additional exclusive records. A beer tent, games, food and 14 live bands were part all part of the event as well. The store also gave out various prizes including tickets to shows from Foellinger Theatre and the new Clyde Theatre,
“We’ve returned vinyl back to America’s consciousness these last few years,” said Bob Roets, owner of the Wooden Nickel. “Now everybody is buying vinyl again because of Record Store Day so it’s getting more and more popular all the time. Kids are embracing it and it’s great because that’s our future.”
At Neat Neat Neat Records, they had special sales and live music throughout the day. Addison Agen wrapped up the day with a solo acoustic set.
