Record Store Day in Lawrence
Oh, there’s nothing finer than getting up bright and early and heading downtown to grab your coffee on a lovely Saturday morning — unless, of course, that Saturday morning happens to be Record Store Day, and the record stores you frequent most often happen to be right across the street from one another.
I arrived at Love Garden Sounds about a quarter ’til 10:00 a.m., and there was a line. There were people in chairs. These were not folding chairs, or camp chairs, mind you: they were cushioned, honest-to-goodness wooden chairs. Some people came far more prepared than I, evidently. At 10 on the nose, Love Garden proprietor Kelly Corcoran came out, explained that all the exclusive releases were at the very back of the store, and explained that anyone throwing elbows would be tossed out.
