Some record stores around the city are celebrating the annual Record Store Day tomorrow with a slew of free all-ages instore performances, sales, contests, and all sorts of swag giveaways.

Here's a quick run-through of what's going down at a few shops around town (if you know of something you don't see below, feel free to leave details in the comments!). Don't forget to set your alarm and watch that tax refund you just got back from Uncle Sam disappear faster than some of those records on the shelves.

Mississippi Records (4007 N. Mississippi)
Nothing planned for this great North Portland record store. Go there anyway. It's highly possible they have some piece of vinyl you've been trying to track down (except the new, already out-of-print Grouper record...major bummer).
