It’s no secret that Record Store Day has helped revitalize the sagging sales of independent brick and mortar record stores everywhere. Now celebrating its 11th year, the big event hits Saturday touting limited-edition titles from artists like Aaliyah, Car Seat Headrest, Johnny Cash, The Doors, Marvin Gaye and so many more.

Below is a list of five Cleveland-area record stores we think you should check out in celebration of all things albums.

You may have to stand in a few lines tomorrow, and elbow through a bunch of hipsters to get what you want, but it should all be worth it in the end.
