Record Store Day is April 13th, and to get you in the mood for buying some sweet sweet vinyl, here's a list that Mental Floss put together of the coolest record stores in the country. It seems obvious that there would be a New York entry, and Brooklyn's own Rough Trade checks in at #4! The last time I went to Rough Trade for a show, this was one of the first things I noticed:

David Bowie
Christine | ALT 92.3

Does it get cooler than Bowie? No, it does not. Rough Trade has all kinds of fun events planned for Record Store Day, including a visit from Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips: see their entire schedule here, and find out more about what releases to expect next Saturday here.
