Record Store Day 2013 In Chicago: Vinyl Fans Crowd Into City Shops (PHOTOS)

Record collectors in Chicago on Saturday crowded into local shops who were among the 1,000 nationwide participating in Record Store Day.

In search of special releases, in-store performances and more goodies (which we previewed here), many music fans got up extra early with their hopes of snatching some of the limited-release musical gems up for grabs.

At Laurie's Planet of Sound, a line formed ahead of the popular store's 9 a.m. opening, DNAinfo Chicago reported.

Photographer Joshua Mellin shared some shots from catching the scene -- and an in-store set from local favorites JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound -- at Saki and two Reckless Records shops.
