Sonic Boom Recordsí Jason Hughes breaks it down:
Jason, what is this Record Store Day?
Jason: Record Store Day is a great reminder of the importance of independent neighborhood record stores and businesses in general. We’ve tried to make it more about the music community by donating money from cupcake sales (graciously provided by another great independent business, Cupcake Royale) and from our new record slip mats directly to the Vera Project. Additionally, we are donating 10% of our sales to Music4life.
What is Music4life?
Music4Life provides funding for instruments and music programs in Seattle Public Schools. Hopefully, folks can feel good about buying music or cupcakes from us on Saturday. There will be a bunch of great in-stores as well.
Hereís a previous clip of Jason in his Ballard cave office talking about what music sells when. Back in Black is a summer seller:
