Internationally celebrated and bigger than ever, Record Store Day 2012 went off as a smashing success at St. Louis-area independent music retailers.

Record Store Day, celebrated the third Saturday of April for the past five years, is an event organized to celebrate independent music and everyone that plays a role in its existence, from artists to fans to clerks. Independent retailers around the world organize free, day-long celebrations that typically include live performances, DJ sets, refreshments and, of course, lots and lots of newly released records.

The 2012 edition, which went down this past Saturday, showed that independent music is alive and well. Over 400 special releases hit record store shelves and several local retailers took part, showcasing dozens of local (and a few national) bands and artists. Two KDHX photographers hit the streets to document the celebrations at Vintage Vinyl, Euclid Records and Apop Records in all of their eclectic, wax-filled glory. Relive the event through their eyes and mark your calendars: The next installment will take place on Saturday, April 20, 2013.
