Best Escape from the Heat: Record Store Day

Record Store Day is an annual tradition at Coachella, as it is at indie record stores across the U.S., where rare and limited edition vinyl is offered for one day only. At the festival's on-site record shop, fans picked up newly pressed records from the 101ers (the first band of Joe Strummer of the Clash), Built to Spill's Untethered Moon, Noel Gallager's Highflying Birds remixes, reissued records from Grizzly Bear, Hawkwind, Ivy, Dolly Parton, AC/DC, Venom and much more. There are no CDs at this store, just a huge cache of new and used vinyl and a section for old cassette tapes. There was a still-sealed copy of Elton John's Caribou from 1974, with an ancient FedCo sticker still asking for $3.24. The store was a place for music lovers, with air-conditioning and Television's Marquee Moon blasting from the speakers. The previous weekend, Ringo Starr even dropped in, while hanging with Paul McCartney at the festival. (They were otherwise occupied this weekend.)
