METALLICA's official web site has been updated with the following message:"Is it an internationally recognized holiday? No, but it should be! We are honored and proud to be participating in Record Store Day on April 19 as hundreds of indy record stores across the country will be celebrating what you already know... the coolest place in any town to hang out is your local record store. So with that said, we'll be hangin' out that day at the Rasputin Music store in Mountain View, CA starting at 2:00 PM. "Come on down to the store, say 'hi,' bring some stuff for us to sign, and in the spirit of supporting your local independent record store, maybe you'll want to do a little shopping while you're there. "Now, the fine print: In our humble effort to make sure that no one is rushed along and that we get a chance to chat with everyone, 400 wristbands will be distributed. You may start lining up at 8 AM...the store opens at 10 AM and will begin passing out wristbands at that time. Met Clubbers, check www.metclub.com for more info on how you can be at the front of the line. "We look forward to seeing our friends at Rasputin and catching up with those of you that can make your way to the store that day. See you then!
