Every day, WalletPop will be bringing you information about a fantastic freebie. Like what you see? Check back tomorrow for more!

Usually the fantastic freebie is available right now, but today I am giving you a heads up so you can be ready for a truly Fantastic freebie only available tomorrow.

Saturday April 19th is National Record Store day, celebrating independent music stores across the world. Most of the action will be taking place at small indie record stores across the U.S. with numerous freebies available, depending on your location.

You can find a list of participating stores online at the official Record Store Day website, as well as a schedule of appearances and performances by bands big and small. Metallica is kicking off the day with a signing at Rasputin in San Francisco and many other bands will be playing at independent shops across the nation including; The Donnas, Broken Stereo and Business Casual DJs. In addition to free performances and the chance to meet some great bands, many stores will be giving away free goodie bags and running in store specials.

Unfortunately my local store shut down a few months ago and the closest participating store is two hours from me, so I won't be able to partake in the festivities. I hope you have a chance to enjoy a free performance or special at your local store, rock out for me while you're there!
