Empire Records. The movie was an homage to the independent record store. Empire Records was on the verge of being bought out but they had one last day-April 8th, the day that Rex Manning was coming to the store. Sure he was washed up and arrogant...but
"We musn't dwell. No, not today-It's Rex Manning Day!"
Hilarity ensues...and honestly a great snapshot of what it was like to hang out at your local record shop in the 90's.
P.S. You still can! Record Store Day is this Saturday. Go to a record store, vibe on some music, meet weird people, repeat...
