Saturday, April 19 is Record Store Day around the country and, of course, Louisville record stores are participating. The biggest event seems to be the Record Store Block Party staged by Astro Black Records, Fat Rabbit and Lisa’s Oak Street Lounge in the 1000 Block of East Oak Street. It’s an all-day event, set to run from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and will feature – among others – Scott Carney of Wax Fang, Anwar Sadat, Chicago’s Animal City, Billy Petot of Whistle Peak and a couple more out-of-town bands, Kal Marks from Boston and Microwaves from Pittsburgh. Cropped Out, Karate Body, Sophomore Lounge and Cavalcade Magazine are co-sponsoring the event.
