Yesterday news began to spread regarding the announcement of International Cassette Store Day. Based on early blog coverage, this event will be spread at least as much by the baffled as by those in the know.
This looks like the kind of thing that will build right up till September 7th but here are the key details from the official site:
Launching in London, additional events are planned for Los Angeles, New York and Tokyo.
Participating stores (physical and digital) will begin to be announced next week.
Limited edition releases from cassette labels will include such groups as At The Drive-In, The Flaming Lips and Deerhunter.
Honestly, I can’t wait!
