Casper and the Cookies
Like Christmas for music nerds, Record Store Day rolls around yet again, with its requisite promises of ultra-limited edition singles and long-awaited box sets. This year, local institution Wuxtry Records will celebrate with a new installment in its Record Store Day compilation series. The CD, available at the store alongside a ton of other RSD loot, will feature exclusive tracks from 14 local bands, including Muuy Biien, Easter Island, Madeline, The Rodney Kings, TaterZandra, Casper and the Cookies and Monsoon. Purchase of the comp will earn you a wristband for free admission into Saturday evening's Caledonia show, where nine of the bands featured on the CD will perform. Synergy! Take note: the show will start at the insanely-early-for-Athens time of 6 p.m.
