Music World to Celebrate First Annual Cassette Store Day

No longer content to playing second fiddle to its older vinyl brother, music tapes will now receive their own day of recognition during the first ever Cassette Store Day.

Modeled after Record Store Day, Cassette Store Day will celebrate all that is analog on September 7, as reported by Alternative Press. “Cassette Store Day is a celebration of a physical product that is accessible, fun, cheap and still going strong in the turbulent current musical climate,” says a statement on the official Cassette Store Day website.

Highlights will include exclusive releases from record labels who are organizing the event, like SEXBEAT, Kissability and Suplex Cassettes. Reissues of albums by the Flaming Lips, Deerhunter, the Pastels and more will also be available. Special events will be held across the globe, featuring live performances and DJ sets. Along with London, England, celebrations will take place in Los Angeles, Calif., Brooklyn, N.Y. and Tokyo, Japan.

I’m no stranger to cassettes. I found these gems recently while digging through old boxes at my mom’s house. Be jealous.
