Record Store Day 2021 is actually split into two days this year because of COVID-19 and we’re salivating already for June 12th. Which is next week. 11 days from now. Like how did 2021 already move that quickly. We’re headed to Houston this week for the grand opening of a brand new boutique HiFi store and also to visit 3 local record stores in the city.
