You've got to hand it to the folks who conceived Record Store Day: In six short years, it's become an international phenomenon. The momentum isn't enough to keep most record stores from shuttering, but it definitely props up business at the ones that are still hanging in there. (An exhaustive list of the various special releases only available Saturday can be found here.) Below, a guide to the best places to spend your disposable income this weekend.

Vinyl Renaissance
1415 West 39th Street

In addition to carrying a bunch of special releases, Vinyl Renaissance is hosting some in-store performances by bands on local label High Dive Records. (The label also released a sampler today, to coincide with RSD, which you can nab here.) The schedule goes like this:

Shy Boys: noon
Fourth of July: 12:45 p.m.
Ghosty: 1:30 p.m.
The Great Vehicle: 2:15 p.m.

Vinyl Ren also recently opened a new store in downtown Overland Park - 7932 Santa Fe - that will have a bunch of RSD exclusives in stock on Saturday.

Zebedee's RPM
1208 West 39th Street

Zebedee's - right across the street from the midtown Vinyl Ren - is knocking $2 off all new records and RSD exclusives, plus discounting all used records by 33 percent.

Love Garden
822 Massachusetts (Lawrence)

Love Garden gets pretty serious about RSD, which is great. There's a whole process with e-mail lists and numbers and item limits per customer and credit slips and discounts. Learn all about it here. Or just show up and hang out, if you're not in greedy-collector mode.

2429 Iowa (Lawrence)

Kief's is offering some RSD exclusives, but that doesn't mean they have to like it.
