(KERO) — The day vinyl fans have been waiting for is almost here.

Record Store Day is set for April 23rd and two Bakersfield stores will be taking part: Going Underground Records and World Records.

The annual event features big name artists putting out limited releases to help support independent record stores. Although this year's Record Store Day is planned as the traditional in-store celebration, organizers are also designating June 18th as a drop date in case supply chain or other production issues cause delays in vinyl getting into stores.

As is normally the case, there's something for fans of different genres.
