Yes, that day you've been waiting all year for is finally here, and nobody celebrates it harder or makes Record Store Day mean more in San Diego than our friends at M-Theory Records.
Doors are at 10 a.m. this year for salivating vinyl fans who can't wait to get their hands on limited-edition releases by such artists as Nirvana, Fela Kuti, the Rolling Stones, Pearl Jam, Dylan, AC/DC, Foo Fighters, the Kills, Yeasayer, Pinback, Mastodon and others.
This year, manager Rick Tyner -- who pulled in Sector 9 Skateboards to sponsor the event and give away skate decks, DVDs, hats and other swag -- told us what disc he, sort of surprisingly, craves most.
"The Beach Boys Good Vibration 78, but there's so many, it's really hard to say," the ultra-chill Tyner said. "The Beach Boys are the first cassette tape I ever had and the first show I ever went to."
Tyner and all the regulars at the Mission Hills store are also looking forward to the bands who have been lined up to play throughout the day. The live music was programmed by Zoo Music and Art Fag and kicks off at 3 p.m. Tucked into the corner and shaking the walls will be Heavy Hawaii, Plateaus and Dunes, and there will also be DJ sets by Mario Orduno, Brandon Welchez, Charles Rowell and Lucy Wehrly.
Hungry for more? Well, they'll have free food and, as always, a sidewalk sale with 50 cent LPs and $1 CDs throughout.
