The locally owned music store, which has been in business for 12 years, was founded from within the inner circle of beloved Dallas band Tripping Daisy. Ever since its opening, the shop has become a popular hangout for music enthusiasts across the Metroplex.Good Records started with a cozy, intimate retail store on Good-Latimer Expressway near Deep Ellum. It recently relocated to a much larger location in Lower Greenville that has ample space to display new releases, as well as host concerts from local groups.
Good Records has a great history of featuring local and world talent at its in-store events. On April 21, Good Records will party with a line-up of bands to complement all the vinyl releases of World Record Store Day. This celebration has been around for five years and puts the spotlight back on vinyl records in the digital age.
Record Store Day is celebrated around the world at various music shops. Bands and labels from all around the world will release special and limited edition vinyl albums and singles for the occasion. Good Records will celebrate with their own limited edition vinyl release of Preteen Zenith's Rubble Guts & BB Eye album on their own Good Records Recordings imprint.
Preteen Zenith is the brainchild of ex-Tripping Daisy members Tim Delaughter and Phil Karnats. In recent times, Delaughter is most known known for his charismatic leading of the Polyphonic Spree tribe. Karnats is popular for working with the Secret Machines.
Good Records 12th Anniversary and 5th Annual Record Store Day co-celebration will feature local and regional acts, including Skeleton Coast, Yells At Eeels, Sealion, New Fumes, Diamond Age and Star Death & White Dwarfs.
