When international Record Store Day hit the streets six years ago, a nostalgic wave flooded music shops, seeped in and out of homes and blared from record players in the form of Fleetwood Mac and Barry White. However, the generation cushioned between the time of the vinyl record and the compact disc are finally offered a day of their own to revel. With the emergence of Cassette Store Day, internationally recognized homage can be given to that beautifully rectangular piece of plastic that couriered our favorite jams. Claremont’s Rhino Records music store is one of thousands worldwide participating in the festivities. “The Cassette is fast forwarding its way out of the graveyard,” General Manager of Rhino Records, Dennis Callaci, shared in a press release. “A band of British outsiders had the idea to celebrate the cassette on Saturday September 7, and now it is snowballing into a worldwide event.” The establishment, with nearly 40 years under its belt, has been around to witness the transformation of information sharing over the decades. Rhino Records will be hosting a day-long event in honor of Cassette Store Day with a medley of sweet deals. Thousands of cassettes from the ‘80s and ‘90s will be on sale, so get there early and dig in. Attendees will also be treated to a free performance from Shrimper Record’s artists Refrigerator and Claremont’s own WCKR SPGT—who are both releasing hand-numbered cassettes available at this event only.
7pm. Rhino Records, 235 Yale Ave., Claremont, (909) 626-7774; www.rhinorecords.cc.

The permanent collection at The California Museum of Photography has a wide array of exquisite photographs, including work by Garry Winogrand entitled “Women are Beautiful.” This folio of 85 portraits captures women in public places from 1964 to 1973.
