Record Store Day 2012: Have a free beer on Reverb and First Drafts

Over the past few years, Record Store Day has evolved from a minor cult holiday to a national event with significant investment from major labels and industry leaders.

To celebrate this year’s festivities — Saturday, April 21 — we’re returning to Twist & Shout on East Colfax to throw another impromptu happy hour with free beer for of-age music fans.

In association with The Denver Post’s new craft beer blog, First Drafts, select Reverb staffers will spin vinyl in the store and provide complementary Breckenridge beer from 3 – 5 p.m. (or until the keg’s kicked, whichever comes first).

Consider this your personal invitation to join us on Saturday, April 21, for a celebration of craft beer and craft music at one of the country’s premier record stores.

RSVP on Facebook, and please extend the invite to your friends of proper age.

Follow our news and updates on Twitter, our whereabouts on Foursquare and our relationship status on Facebook. Or send us a telegram.

John Hendrickson is the managing editor of Reverb and a multimedia journalist for The Denver Post. Follow his rants on music and more on Twitter.

    Great idea and a great time!
    I would politely suggest that after buying some records from Twist & Shout and enjoying some beer, that interest parties are welcome to come down the street to celebrate Wax Trax Records 33 1/3 Birthday!
    Bands on 4/21: Coverage (Descendents covers), Uphollow (’90s version), Accordion Crimes, Wheelchair Sports Camp, and Jason Heller. Then at 8pm at City O City: Magic Cyclops, Get Your Going, and Fine Gentlemen’s Club. All free, All Ages.

    Record Store Day has always been awesome. Make sure to keep the tradition alive and make this year one even better. April 21, 2012 is the day:)
