Today is Record Store Day 2014 and if you haven't seen the list of exclusive releases, you may want to take a glance and get in line at your local shop before all the goods are gone forever. I'm excited to check out my favorite spots in the district including Red Onion, Smash!, SomCrooked Beat and Joint Custody to grip some vinyl. Check out what these and some of the other stores around town have planned in this guide written by my buddy Matt for DCist.

The next show at the Dougout is just around the corner and will be featuring some garage scuzz punk from local favorites Foul Swoops, Chicago scumlords Flesh Panthers, new district transplants Neonates, and ex-shitstains Sneaks from Baltimore. The gig is set for May 1, more information can be found here.
