Here’s the trailer for the upcoming documentary I Need That Record: The Death (Or Possible Survival) of the Independent Record Store:
The film examines why independent record stores continue to struggling to survive—over 3,000 business have closed in the last 10 years. It features commentary from Ian Mackaye, Mike Watt, Legs McNeil, Thurston Moore, Noam Chomsky, Patterson Hood, Bryan Poole, and people from Rhino, Bloodshot, and United Record Press.
In related news, this Saturday, April 19, is the first national Record Store Day. A bunch of local stores are celebrating with specials and in-store performances (I’ll post a complete list of what’s happening where tomorrow).
