8th Annual Record Store Day


Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. There are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica.

The Buzz has put together a great guide to the local festivities so check their coverage out. Or look at the guides Error Records and Exile on Main St. (with Heirship, Amnesiac & Dandelion) have.

CU Make

CU Make is a 28 hour make-a-thon where participants work together to build physical prototypes and mockups centered around a given theme. For our inaugural event, the theme we are focusing on is elderly accessibility.

How can we make it easier for seniors to perform their day to day activities?

We want YOU to come up with an idea to help seniors by designing and building something to help with everyday tasks and ease-of-mobility.
