This past weekend was quite eventful. Saturday was Record Store Day, a holiday for all vinyl geeks and collectors. Needless to say, I am one of those and I indulged heavily. My day kicked off at about noon and stretched until the wee wee hours.
My first stop of the day was Euclid Records where I caught a performance by John Doe (X!!) & Jill Sobule.
Me, Chelsea, & Ben show our excitement over our finds.
Double the Donna Summer, double the fun!
After devouring some sandwiches from a great little deli spot called Fozzie's Sandwich Emporium (S. Big Bend), I headed home to nap before heading out to my friends Sara and Jenny's dirty thirty throw down at the Waiting Room bar in St. Ann.

Next, I headed off to Apop Records to close out Record Store Day with more record shopping and some hardcore punk rock courtesy of Defect Defect and Canadian Rifle.

I made my way back to the birthday party following the show and called it a day sometime around 3am.
Sunday afternoon was all about Mix Tape Club. Mix Tape Club is something we do once a month. Everyone who makes a mix tape, gets a mix tape. We throw names in a hat and draw. This months club took place at Tower Grove Park and a good time was had by all.

After Mix Tape Club, I headed up to the Firebird to catch Bass Drum of Death.
