Record Store Day at Omega Music

The first-ever national Record Store Day celebration at the new Omega Music location in the Oregon District proved to be a huge event for participating bands, customers and the store itself. People from as far away as North Carolina populated the day’s festivities, most of whom left the store with a piece of vinyl under their arms. The event also featured a full day’s worth of live music from some of the area’s best musical acts. The Buffalo Killers from Cincinnati kicked off the live music portion of the day with their rarified brand of bluesy garage-rock with a stoner metal edge, only to be joined later by Mitch Mitchell of Guided by Voices and Kelley Deal of the Breeders to cover classic GBV tunes, “Scalding Creek” and “A Salty Salute.” The Motel Beds, Astro Fang, Rad Company and Yakuza Heart Attack also turned in rockin’ sets worthy of your going out money when they play at your favorite watering hole in the near future. It appears that Omega Music may host more free, live music events in the future and they should all be worthy of your patronage.
