Metallica has posted the following update on their site:

"We are honored and proud to be participating in Record Store Day on April 19 as hundreds of indy record stores across the country will be celebrating what you already know... the coolest place in any town to hang out is your local record store. So with that said, we'll be hangin' out that day at the Rasputin Music store in Mountain View, CA starting at 2:00 PM. "

"Come on down to the store, say "hi," bring some stuff for us to sign, and in the spirit of supporting your local independent record store, maybe you'll want to do a little shopping while you're there."

400 wristbands will be distributed. You may start lining up at 8 AM. The store opens at 10 AM and will begin passing out wristbands at that time.

For store address, directions, etc., go to www.rasputinmusic.com.
