Wax Trax will be carrying as many vinyl releases as it can cram on the shelves.

Record Store Day celebrates the culture of independently owned record stores, and the event has grown in popularity every year. The first record store day was back in 2007, an idea that was sparked by an email from a record store employee in Portland, Oregon.

Bowman's Vinyl and Lounge 1312 South Broadway Hailed as Denver's only record store with a full bar, Bowman's is throwing a Record Store Day Party that starts at 8 p.m. with Jon Snodgrass, Nate Valdez, Joel Rossi and Luke Schmaltz, and there's a $7 cover.

"You can pass around the liner notes, discuss the album artwork, enjoy a beer or two, etc". Though the store has participated each year in Record Store Day, Gederberg said this year will be the biggest with more than 150 exclusive vinyl releases.

Nathan McGlothlin describes spending time in a local record store as having a "sense of belonging and identity". The set, from 1956, includes songs Cry Me A River, Gone With The Wind, and I've Got A Crush On You.

"Stopping by on Record Store Day and seeing that place is gonna be a madhouse".

The store opens at 10 a.m. The live set Live at Twist & Shout 11.16.07, recorded in Denver, makes its vinyl debut (it was released on CD in 2008).

McDonald said they have about 200 new records going on sale today, along with more than 200 used records he's been saving for the occasion.

Wax Trax 638 East 13th Avenue The store, which opens at 9 a.m. on Record Store Day, recently posted on its Facebook page, "We like to think, since we have a record store, that every day is a record store day: That's over 14,000 record store days that we've had since November 1978".

While these exclusives help bring in the crowds, the entire day has become a party for record lovers, Marsh said.

Wu-Tang Clan. You can get the original Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) available on cassette for the first time since its original release in 1993.

Various artists. The eight-track Speak Out: Recorded Live at the 2017 Newport Folk Festival collects performances of protest songs with artists including Billy Bragg, Jim James, Marco Price, Nathaniel Rateliff, Nick Offerman, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
