The good folks behind the annual Record Store Day recently released a massive list of the special releases they’ve lined up for this year’s event, scheduled for April 21, 2018. In a list that includes previously unreleased material from acts like AC/DC, David Bowie, Johnny Cash, Led Zeppelin, Linkin Park and U2, two live releases stand out.

Back in August of 2000, just months before Rage Against the Machine broke up, the band staged a protest gig in Los Angeles, across the street from the venue of the Democratic National Convention. At the open-air gig, the band tore through a visceral six-song set, playing their biggest hits. That live performance is now set to be released as an album titled Live at the Democratic National Convention 2000, on vinyl in an edition of 5000.

The National

Another band celebrating Record Store Day with a live record are The National. The band will release Boxer Live in Brussels, recorded at a special show last year celebrating the tenth anniversary of their breakthrough album. This release is limited to 4000 copies and was recorded on November 9, 2017 at Forest National in Belgium.
