UDPATED! Record Store Day 2011 In-store Lineup (Obits, The Jay Vons, Yo La Tengo (DJ set), Tom Scharpling (DJ) and more

It’s that time of year – when the vinyl nerds emerge from their dusty caves in the pursuit of limited edition pieces of wax. Also known as RECORD STORE DAY!!!


As anybody who has come to the store over the last few years can attest to, RSD is so much more at Generation. It’s a full-on celebration. This year, along with the usual hi-jinks, we’ll be celebrating the vinyl release of The Bouncing Souls “Live At Generation Records” 12-…inch and OFF!’s “Live At Generation Records” 7-inch.


So while you look over the list of RSD releases coming out, we’d like to announce the full lineup for our 3rd annual RSD in-store extravaganza. Drumroll please…




OBITS (New record out now on Sub Pop! Members of Hot Snakes, Drive Like Jehu)
THE JAY VONS (members of Reigning Sound, Robbers On High Street)
I HATE OUR FREEDOM (members of Texas Is The Reason, Thursday. New record out on Mightier Than Sword Records)
