Instagram: A look back at Record Store Day 2013 in Seattle

Last Friday, I wrote this blog post about my excitement over Record Store Day 2013. Indeed, Saturday’s annual holiday for music fiends reiterated the importance of supporting our local independent stores.

I also promised to document some of my favorite moments throughout the day. See the Storify slideshow below, with photos from my Instagram feed. Scroll to the end to see the four records I ended up taking home. (I had a hard time resisting the temptation to get more, but sometimes a girl’s gotta stick to her budget.)

Special thanks to Lacey Swain and Ruben Mendez of Gold Van Records. This creative duo came up with the glorious idea of curating a collection of records, decking out a 1987 Mitsubishi Delica in gold, and driving around town once in a while to build a community around good music. (I’d been raring to meet them since reading this Seattle Met write-up.)
