As befits post-legalization Colorado, Record Store Day 2013 is happening this Saturday, which happens to be 4/20. Here in town, you can shuttle between two shops that are featuring some of the town’s best live acts.
A hip-hop showcase at Independent Records' Platte Avenue branch gets underway at 1 p.m. with sets by seven area acts, including Stoney Bertz, Reflecshaun, Che Bong and A Black Day members Jayoin and Hott.
Over at the Leechpit from noon to 4:20 p.m., look for indie-rock and roots musicians ranging from the Grant Sabin Band and Joe Johnson to Drug Flowers and We Are Not a Glum Lot.
Meanwhile, as a preview, here’s a video snippet released earlier this week from Stoney Bertz’s forthcoming album. Her set at Independent Records is scheduled for 1:25 p.m.
