Ahhh, Record Store Day — of all fabricated capitalist holidays, we sure do love you the best. But how to divvy up a full day of deals, DJ sets and in-store performances from local bands and big names too, let alone in a town as legendarily rife with vinyl as Portland? Luckily, XRAY.fm’s done the hard part for you. Behold, some of our favorite record stores in town, and a calendar of their plans for the busiest day of a crate digger’s year.
