Music lovers and hardcore collectors clustered in and around Los Angeles' best known record stores this past Saturday for a chance to score limited edition vinyl releases, drop dough on equipment and memorabilia and geek out together on Record Store Day. We hit Vacation Vinyl and Rockaway Records in Silver Lake (both of which had lines down the block early morning) and Amoeba in Hollywood, which had a sign-up sheet for the rare stuff and a consistently long line all day. Amoeba also played host to DJ sets and signings by Little Dragon and Cherry Glazerr, and silk-screened-to order items. Inspired by Amoeba's “What's in My Bag” design, we snapped a smattering of shoppers with their fave new music scores.
