Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.’s string of local Record Store Day concerts will continue. The Detroit duo will play Royal Oak Music Theatre April 19, the group announced Tuesday, for the bargain basement price of $0.89.

Tickets for the show go on sale at noon Friday online, at the venue box office and at UHF Records in Royal Oak.

This marks the third year Jr. Jr. has played a local show on Record Store Day, which falls on the third Saturday of April and is a day designated to celebrate independent record store retailers. The last two years, the indie pop duo has celebrated the vinyl holiday with shows at Detroit’s Majestic Theatre.

Flint’s Tunde Olaniran will open the April 19 concert.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. released its second album, “The Speed of Things,” in October. Last week, the group released a free mixtape, “Produce,” online at datpiff.com. The set contains collaborations with Olaniran, Murs, Asher Roth and more, as well as a song that mashes the Beach Boys’ “I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times” with Notorious B.I.G.’s “Hypnotize.”
