Mark it on your calendars, Cassette Store Day is this Saturday, September 27th! Thirty years ago cassettes helped revolutionize the music industry by making music more accessible. With the help of the Walkman, people could listen to their music anywhere in the world. Although the new format had lower fidelity than vinyl, they were cheaper, smaller and more durable. The ability to record and rerecord on cassette opened the doors to the birth of the almighty mixtape, a blank canvas for musical self expression. Lest we forget the feeling of making that special someone the perfect mix. The blood, sweat and tears it took to meticulously dub each handpicked track in real time. Ahhh simpler times those were.
In celebration of that warm and fuzzy analog sound, we’re going to have a sale on Cassette Store Day at our record shop in Ballard. Everything in the shop will be 10% off, including cassettes, CDs, LPs, etc. We’re also going to be offering a buy 2 get one free promotion. And on top of all that, with each purchase you’ll receive a free Donnie and Joe mix tape (while supplies last)!! So celebrate that loveable warm and fuzzy analog sound by picking up some limited edition Cassette Store Day exclusives.
