It’s not easy being a record store in the age of Spotify and Pandora, but Ballard is lucky to have some of the best in the city.
David Mayden posted this photo in the My Ballard Facebook Group of the long line outside Sonic Boom Records this morning. With lots of special releases, giveaways, entertainment and Top Pot Doughnuts, Sonic Boom always puts on a big event for Record Store Day. Lil Woody’s even made a Sonic Boom Burger to commemorate the occasion.
Over in Old Ballard, Bop Street Records is holding a big sale — including thousands of LPs for $3 or less — and live music by Slow Skate at 3 p.m. and Proud Wonderful Me at 5 p.m.
