Record store appearance in Hawaii to promote Johnson cd

Record Store Day 2011 / Yes, it can be wearisome to stop every five minutes or so to flip a record, but if you’re one of those devoted vinyl enthusiasts who gets a shiver as you inhale the ancient musty smell of a favorite record, there is little that you won’t do. Whether you’ve ever bought a remastered edition of a record already in your collection, sold a plain black record for the multi-colored, tie-dyed version or skipped meals for a rare 7-inch split single, it’s OK. There is a day especially for you, and this year it includes Todd Rundgren.

Hungry Ear Records, Stylus and Jelly’s Hawaii have all taken the Record Store Day 2011 pledge, which means that they have all chosen to rejoice in the glory of music by carrying special-order requests and special vinyl and CD releases made exclusively for this day.

Hungry Ear Records will have an in-store appearance from remarkable rock musician and producer Todd Rundgren, who is known for universally loved anthems like “Hello It’s Me” and “I Saw the Light.” Rundgren will debut his new album, Todd Rundgren’s Johnson, a tribute to the blues pioneer who originally saw the light, Robert Johnson. There will also be a performance by the talented local act Stephen Agustin and the Fourth Wall.

Hungry Ear Records, 418 Kuulei Rd., Sat., 4/16, guest appearance at 4pm, [], 262-2175
