Cassette Store Day at Nice Price on Saturday 9/27

Yes, it’s real. The international event, Cassette Store Day, will take place in part in Raleigh at Nice Price Books and Records on Hillsborough Street.

Much like Record Store Day, Cassette Store Day will be a day long event where record—err, tape labels will release hundreds of cassettes for tape deck toting music lovers to purchase. Before you write this off as being some ironic fad that will never catch on, you might want to take a look at the list of cassettes that will be released. Artists that have a cassette coming out on Saturday include Cloud Nothings, Best Coast, and even Raleigh’s own Ghostt Bllonde.

So go ahead and hit up your parents for their old Walkman, or get on Craigslist and find a cassette player before Saturday!
