1. Custom printed T-shirts
Custom printed T-shirts were available outside Boo Boo Records this past April 19 for Record Store Day. The first customers in line received their T-shirt for free.
While Record Store Day is a celebration of independently owned record stores, it bears a similar resemblance to Free Comic Book Day. Music lovers conversed at Boo Boo Records, bonding over their love of vinyl.
This year, Boo Boo Records dedicated the day to customer George Kovacic who passed away this past week. Kovacic always supported local music at Boo Boo Records, and said his favorite day was Record Store Day.
