Your guide to Record Store Day 2023 in Montreal


The 2023 edition of Record Store Day (RSD) is scheduled for April 22.

RSD was launched in 2007 by a collective of independent record store owners and employees.

The idea is to celebrate independent brick and mortar record stores, their owners, employees, customers, as well as the artists behind the music. More information is available at
