Black Friday has a different meaning at record stores this week, such as . It means collectible vinyl albums released by the biggest names in the business and available only on this big shopping day.
It's part of a worldwide effort to keep stores in business that sell recordings, in an era when the Internet is making music readily available, and often stealable, online.
Record store day was started in 2007 and joined by 700 independent record stores. It is celebrated the third Saturday in April. However, a second day has been added to cover what is the biggest shopping day of the year, the day after Thanksgiving.
Artists including the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, the Beastie Boys, the Beatles, Kings of Leon and Matisyahu have special releases that will only be available Friday.
It's a way to encourage people to keep visiting record stores rather than buying everything online.
Here is the list of possible records available Friday at Streetlight in Santa Cruz from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Get there early because the vinyl is limited.
