[UPDATED] Foo Fighters to Perform In-Store at Fingerprints for Record Store Day!

UPDATE, APRIL 11, 6:56 P.M.: Hey, seriously, this in-store performance is way sold-out. Fingerprints would like to stress that there will be absolutely no walk-up entry on Saturday. So don't go loiter outside the store anyway hoping you'll get in, and stop freaking out the city of Long Beach, okay? 

UPDATE, APRIL 4, 5:26 P.M.: So if you're not already in line, we'd probably think over making the drive to Long Beach. According to Fingerprints' official Facebook page:

Attn.: Foo Fans: The line is longer than our capacity, so if you're headed this way for anything besides a sunburn, you might want to reconsider. . . .

And check out a photo of the queue sent in by a reader after the jump.

Upcoming Events

"I'm proud to be a part of Record Store Day. I grew up discovering music that changed my life in record stores like Fingerprints and will always do everything I can to keep that experience alive for generations to come," says head Foo Dave Grohl.

Meanwhile, Fingerprints owner Rand Foster is stoked, too: "Record Store Day has quickly become both an annual celebration of the indie record store culture and a day to revel in the glory of unique physical goods. We are extremely proud to host a special Foo Fighters' in-store for this year's event; their 2011 covers album is a classic example of a great RSD exclusive. We are excited to be part of this year's RSD event, and happy to help keep the spirit of the record store going all year round."
