It’s almost that time again. Record Store Day 2011 is just around the corner, taking place in most independent record stores on April 16th. I’ve seen quite a few announcements already about exclusives, and plan to share more as the date gets closer, starting with what Sub Pop Records is doing. And boy, are they really doing some cool things. Here is the rundown.
