Record Store Day is an international celebration of independent record stores, and it was the brainchild of Chris Brown of Bull Moose Music right here in Maine. Shops around the globe – including all of Maine’s Bull Moose locations – offer special, limited-edition releases from hundreds of artists, and music aficionados line up to scoop up the items before they’re gone.  Record Store Day is celebrated in April (on the 21st in 2018). Many stores also have live performances by local and national acts.
