Remember SP20? Now you can relive it with Sub Pop’s Record Store Day offerings

Record Store Day, the annual event where indie record shops offer tons of exclusive goodies to music fans in celebration of independent record stores, will be here on April 17.

Last year Seattle’s own Sub Pop Records celebrated Record Store Day with the release of some limited-edition vinyl offerings from Bllitzen Trapper, Flight of the Conchords and more. This year Sub Pop stepped up its game a bit with some pretty cool releases including a benefit CD of live performances from 2008’s two-day SP 20 celebration (that’s the cover of the album over there on the left) and a limited-edition 7″ reissue of Soundgarden’s first Sub Pop single “Hunted Down” with “Nothing to Say” as the B-side. If you weren’t at SP 20 check out the review of Day 1 here and the review of Day 2 here.

Here are the details of the Soundgarden and SP 20 releases as well as  the rest of Sub Pop’s Record Store Day offerings straight from the peeps at Sub Pop

Pics from last weekend’s SP 20 at Marymoor Park

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I have a Flickr page that is filled to the brim with tons of photos of rock shows. I usually bring my point-and-shoot camera with me whenever I go to a show and I try to get a photo credential so I can spend some time in the photo pit and get my Charles Peterson on.

On my Flickr page you will find pics of Green River, Kinski, Comets on Fire, Wolf Parade and other bands that performed at last weekend’s SP 20 (which was awesome btw). You’ll also find pics of Flogging Molly, Radiohead, The Pixies, Beastie Boys and more. There are two sets of Sp 20 pics, one is here and the other is here.

So if you want to scope out some amateur rock photography, or if you are just looking to waste some time at work on a Thursday, click on over and check it out.
