Cassette Store Day 2018

  • Culture Clash Records 4020 Secor Road Toledo, OH, 43623 United States (map)

Culture Clash is primarily a record store, but we get behind cassette tapes as a wonderful and cost-effective format for musicians and their fans.

We'll be bringing in dozens of limited edition tapes from artists like J Dilla, Sleep, Nada Surf, (friends of the store) Lung, and more, and we'll be giving away plenty of goodies all day long!

Cassette Store Day was created in 2013 by a group of record labels based in the UK. Although Cassette Store Day was inspired by Record Store Day, the intention of CSD is focused on celebrating cassettes rather than supporting shops - whereas the latter is the main goal of RSD. The first Cassette Store Day was observed on 7 September 2013. More than twenty eight shops, including Rough Trade in London, participated by stocking special limited edition cassettes, with some stores hosting live performances.

Over the years bands such as Motörhead, Ramones, Julian Casablancas, Pixies, The Flaming Lips, Courtney Barnett, Green Day and Muse have all released tapes through Cassette Store Day. Most importantly, CSD has been a great way to highlight the unsigned talent and create a place for underground music, whichever the genre, to circulate through events in record stores, radio shows and gigs on the day.
