Our friends at SEXBEAT have announced International Cassette Store Day. The event will take place on Saturday 7th September across various venues in the UK, New York, Los Angeles, and Tokyo featuring a number of new releases and special reissues from the likes of Fucked Up, At The Drive-In and Deerhunter.
No longer the inadequate, younger sibling of Vinyl and CD, the humble Cassette has been making a resurgence of late. Proving that cassette tapes are not just for those of us who remember buying Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ with birthday money, or making lovingly compiled mixtapes for the object of our teenage affections. International Cassette Store Day 2013 is a celebration of a physical product that is accessible, fun, cheap and still going strong in the turbulent current musical climate.
