CD Central will be celebrating their 15th birthday (happy birthday!) in the midst Record Store Day, which takes place April 17. The celebration will actually start earlier that week, however. Schedule below:

April 12-15 : "CD Central Family Jam." In-store performances every day with bands featuring past and present CD Central employees.
April 16: Apples in Stereo Party. Pre-game for the Cosmic Charlie's show that night and celebrating the release of the new album (which will apparently be released in Lexington a few days before the rest of the country, because we're so special and shizz).
