This Saturday would have been Record Store Day, a joyful, 20-year tradition at Dallas’ Good Records. The iconic local shop has hosted performances by everyone from Erykah Badu to Steve Earle to The Shins to Alice Cooper. A lot has unfolded on the record store’s humble stage. You can read “A People’s History of Good Records” by Christopher Mosley to get filled in. Record Store Day is the biggest event of the year for the store, and even though doors are closed, Good Records will party on. 

This Saturday, in honor of the holiday, Good Records is premiering Jason Lytle: Live from the Astroturf on Vimeo on demand. The film documents the artist’s July 2019 performance at Good Records, a career-spanning set of 14 songs. You can rent or buy the film here.There are two other film screenings, Vinyl Nation and Other Music Documentary, that are part of Record Store Day festivities. 

You can also catch Good Records’ co-owner Chris Penn DJing live on the store’s Instagram and Facebook pages throughout the day, and browse the shelves through Good Records To Go. To help complete your at-home Record Store Day experience, the store teamed up with food and beverage delivery service Good Citizen.

Joining the party will help keep Good Records spinning strong through this uncertain time. Watch a movie, order a drink, and drop the needle on some fresh vinyl. It’s for a good cause.
