MGMT, Manchester Orchestra, Roky Erickson and Other Top Sellers at Local Record Stores

Here's a look at what's selling this week at local record stores.

MGMT's Congratulations holds steady with several number one spots, Record Store Day exclusives manage to still be selling well, especially at Revolver Records, even several weeks after Record Store Day, and comedian Brian Posehn makes an appearance on Zia's charts, probably in anticipation of his upcoming performance at the Tempe Improv.
