We’re counting down the minutes until Record Store Day 2023. The annual celebration of independent record stores happens every year in April. This year, a lot of awesome albums are apart of the special release. If you need a place to celebrate, we recommend checking out one of these 5 record stores in the Tampa Bay area. Keep in mind that this is a pretty big deal for a lot of people. You may find lines wrapped around the building depending on what time you go. It’s also a possibility that the album you’re looking for may be gone.
Many of these local record stores are following a “first come, first served” system. Per the Record Store Day pledge, these stores are not allowed to reserve, hold, or flip RSD releases. There are a few releases that are going to be a hot commodity, like Macho Man Randy Savage’s: Be A Man. Click here to see 46 classic rock titles being released this year.

Be sure to check each store’s social media to see when they open and if they’re carrying that album you’re looking for.
