MadCity Music Welcomes the Official Film of RSD 2016!

The Smart Studios Story is the OFFICIAL FILM of RECORD STORE DAY 2016.

…And, MadCity Music Exchange is proud to welcome Butch Vig and Steve Marker to celebrate on Record Store Day, April 16! Butch and Steve will be hanging out in the afternoon and giving away a promotional cassette created just for Record Store Day.  The cassette, a collaboration with Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, captures over a dozen early, independent songs recorded at Smart Studios in the 1980s.  MadCity will be one of only two stores in the country where Butch and Steve will be personally handing out the cassettes! Available while they last, but they won’t last long!
