The original idea for Record Store Day was conceived by Chris Brown, and was founded in 2007 by Eric Levin, Michael Kurtz, Carrie Colliton, Amy Dorfman, Don Van Cleave and Brian Poehner as a celebration of the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record stores in the USA, and hundreds of similar stores internationally.
This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances.
Come, hang out, find out about some new artists and releases, or reconnect with ones you already love. This is one day out of the year, not to different from any other, that we all come together as consumers artists and independent retailers to celebrate the ART of MUSIC. Party!

Wooster's Monthly 3rd Tuesday Show.
$5/door / 21+
April Lineup includes:
Wooster - Wooster
"One of Santa Cruz' liveliest local acts, Wooster has become a crowd favorite in a relatively short period of time. The band kicks on a winning amalgam of blues, soul and reggae anchored by grooves played by crack players who know their way around some elastic funk. The band's secret weapon is vocalist Caroline Kuspa, whose singing chops and emotive power are undeniable. With the band gearing up for the impending release of its eagerly awaited full-length The Heights of Things, expect to hear a lot about Wooster in the months and years to come." - Paul Davis (Mule Train, Santa Cruz Weekly)
Eliquate - http://www.eliquate.com/
Avant-garde Hip Hop, indie rock, funk and party music with a purpose are just a few of the ways to describe Eliquate. With tremendous energy, musical ingenuity, and a passion that reminds their listeners why underground hip hop is still alive and kickin’ Eliquate’s live show will leave you raw with a confidence that can only be expressed by putting your hands in the air and screaming back to the band that the people are listening.
Coffis Brothers - http://
The Coffis Brothers and The Mountain Men are an original rock and roll band comprised of five young men from the Santa Cruz Mountains. Formed in 2010, Henry Chadwick, Kyle Poppen, Mason Hutchinson have joined brothers Jamie and Kellen up and down the West Coast and in some of the Bay Area's more renowned concert venues. The brothers play a throwback style of rock and roll in a classic 5 piece format. The rootsy folk influence of artists such as The Beatles, Tom Petty and Neil Young is obvious, yet the prolific brothers have come up with an extensive, yet carefully crafted repertoire of songs that are unique and original.
