Nicole Atkins, Locksley, Willie Nile & Pat DiNizio to play benefit salute to Buddy Holly at Vintage Vinyl

As anyone in the Jerz will tell you, the best record store on the East Coast is Vintage Vinyl in Fords.  No further discussion needed.  I just found this press release in our in-box for what looks like a killer free event at "The Double V":

Record Store Day Sponsoring "Buddy Holly Lives!" festival at Vintage Vinyl to raise money for Parkinson's research

January 23, 2009- Record Store Day, presented by a consortium of independent music retailers spanning the United States and overseas with hundreds of store locations, will be sponsoring Buddy Holly Lives on January 31st, 2009. Vintage Vinyl Records will host "Buddy Holly Lives," a live in-store concert event.

The free concert will seek to raise money for the Light of Day Foundation, a charitable organization dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's Disease. The event begins at noon and is expected to run until about 5 PM.

The performers, including celebrated NY rocker Willie Nile, Columbia recording artist Nicole Atkins, Pat Dinizio, lead vocalist of the Smithereens, MTV featured artists Locksley and more, will each perform their favorite Buddy Holly tunes to celebrate the life of the rock legend and commemorate the 50th Anniversary of his tragic plane crash. The event will take place on the Vintage Vinyl in-store stage.

Vintage Vinyl Records is an independently owned and operated records store in NJ since 1979.
