Record Store Day is this Saturday. Because there are almost as many record stores in L.A. as there are donut shops, we compiled a handy guide to help you get your hot little hands on as much vinyl as possible.

We called every record store in a 40-mile radius and made a list of all the day's deals and live performances -- one store will have free food, another will have a cool "vinyl valet," and a couple are opening at the crack of dawn.

1. Freakbeat Records, Sherman Oaks:

-Will be carrying new RSD releases

-10% discount on all merchandise
