Boise celebrates Record Store Day

The Record Exchange is celebrating Record Store Day with a full weekend of sales and events.

They kicked things off Friday with an evening listening party, free beer and raffle prizes. On Saturday there were about 250 people lined up before the store opened to nab exclusive releases, including the new Built to Spill record. Go Listen Boise street performers hosted a bake sale, New West Records handed out kombucha samples and food vendors sold local grub, according to Chad Dryden, marketing and promotions director for the Record Exchange.

"It's been pretty steady all day," Dryden said. "It's been a really really fun weekend so far."

The fun continues Sunday with an in-store performance by Lord Huron at 4 p.m. This will also be the first time a band performs on the Record Exchange's new stage, Dryden said.
