Inaugural Cassette Store Day Announced
September 7th will see the first ever International Cassette Store Day, NME reports. The event, which is modeled on the annual Record Store Day, will see a number of limited edition albums released on cassette as well as modern classic albums re-released on the format for the first time.

A statement from the organizers reads as follows:

"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."

Amongst already confirmed releases are records from the Flaming Lips, Deerhunter and At the Drive in.

Events will be taking place at Rough Trade East in London, Burger Records in California and Silent Barn in Brooklyn, with a Tokyo event to be confirmed.
