The list of special releases will be unveiled
Amoeba Records Hollywood will host a press conference on Thursday, March 20th to announce the list of titles for Record Store Day, which takes place Saturday, April 19th.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti will be on hand to open the event with a Record Store Day Proclamation that will include a roundtable discussion with rap legend Chuck D, The Doors drummer John Densmore, local record store owners and more special guests following the announcement of titles and highlights.
Chuck D was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year for his work leading the pioneering hip-hop group Public Enemy, helping to make politically and socially conscious lyrics popular in hip-hop. Densmore, also a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, was the drummer for the classic L.A. band The Doors, and he appeared with Doors bandmates Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek in the 2012 documentary RE:GENERATION, which saw Densmore collaborate with electronic music star Skrillex.
A simultaneous RSD event will take place in London and Nashville on March 20th. The list of titles to be released for 2014 Record Store Day will also be listed online at recordstoreday.com and here at The Music Universe.
