Buzzing Around Town

Tenth Annual Record Store Day
Saturday April 22, 2017
It's Record Store Day time - and the tenth annual one to boot! You've heard me say this - for about ten years now - that Record Store Day is the sure sign of spring for me. Not only are there exclusive RSD deals and fabulous in-store concerts, the great conversations happening on the sidewalk outside of the stores and the sense of community makes me uber-proud to live in this neighborhood. A little trivia - according to Record Store Day rules, the stores cannot open earlier than 8:00 am - not that folks won't be lined up well before then. Read on for details of the events in Broad Ripple and beyond.

Karma Records
Karma East: 21 N. Post Road
Karma West: 3802 N. High School Road
Karma N.W.: 3532 W. 86th Street
There weren't any details about Karma Record's RSD activities available at press time, but I wanted to be sure and include them since they are Indianapolis' oldest record store, opening in 1970.
Their Facebook page indicates that they will have Record Store Day special releases, but I'm not sure if that will be at all stores or just one.

Not-for-profit director by day, music writer by night, Nora Spitznogle reviews music that happened and previews music and events around Broad Ripple Village. Nora managed CATH Inc coffeehouse at 54th Street and College Avenue for seven years. During that time she hosted hundreds of local and touring musicians, both at the coffeehouse and her home. When CATH closed in 2004 and the music was no longer coming to her, she had to wander from her corner of Broad Ripple to see what is happening elsewhere. You can find her at Second Helpings during the work day, waitressing at the Red Key on Saturday nights and prowling Broad Ripple music venues the rest of the time.
