Record Store Showdown says
In honor of Record Store Day and as part of EMP’s Pop Con, watch as teams representing a few of Seattle’s record stores battle it out and put their encyclopedic knowledge of music to the test!

Seattle is brimming with music nerds. The best place to find them? At our great local independent record stores, staffed with music experts of the highest order. Join us at this music game show/battle royale as we weed out the weakest link and these record clerks “Come on down!”

Hosted by Greg Vandy of KEXP’s The Roadhouse.

Featuring teams from Everyday Music, Sonic Boom, Spin Cycle, and Easy Street.

In partnership with Record Store Day.

Greg Vandy is host of The Roadhouse, a weekly radio show on KEXP-Seattle and the publisher of American Standard Time, a blog dedicated to American music and vintage lifestyle. He also curates for the Pickathon music festival and his first book 26 Songs In 30 Days: Woody Guthrie’s Columbia River Songs & The Planned Promised Land In The Pacific Northwest is slated for release April 12, 2016 via Sasquatch Books. Over the past two decades, Vandy has became a tastemaker in the world of indie roots and American music in general.
