Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready announced through the band's youtube channel that they've been named "Record Store Day 2019 ambassadors". April 13th marks the 12th anniversary celebrating independent record shops and the music, of course.
The widely successful event features artists from across a variety of genres launching limited edition releases and playing intimate live sets to celebrate independent record stores across the world. In this article from Loudersound , McCready says:
"Every independent record store I’ve been to, I’ve gotten something out of it in terms of great music and a cool feeling. I always feel a bit better when I come out of record stores.”...."“not only the record shops that have stood the test of time but also the new generation of shops who have just opened their doors.”
