"It's the most wonderful day of the year," we'll crow into the bright morning sun on Saturday. Morning sun, because lots of these record shops are flinging their doors open bright and early for audiophiles and local music fans to bustle in and snatch up all the Record Store Day releases. This is the seventh annual RSD, an internationally celebration of independent record stores.

You'll note we widen our scope beyond Indianapolis a bit on RSD to cover regional shops doing cool stuff on this musical holiday. There are several local artists booked to play at more than one shop this Saturday, and we know lots of shoppers who stop at three or more shops throughout the day.

Clickety-clack on our little map for a rundown on all the live music offerings and special events for this year's Record Store Day. More coverage to come as the week rolls on.
