We have a whole LOT to tell you about Black Friday Record Store Day this year, coming up QUICK – in less than three weeks!!! This is usually the second busiest day for sales in our store, right behind the actual Record Store Day that happens in April. We do have a number of exclusive releases coming in this year – however the amount we were able to order is a little limited, so we have a few other things planned to make a trip out to our store the day after Thanksgiving worth it.
For Black Friday Record Store Day – our store opens at 8:00 am on this day. Feel free to wait in line earlier if you really really want to. We will have free coffee and donuts. Everything in the store other than the exclusive releases will be 25% off. This is the first time we have ever done a sale in the new store. We are expecting to have a fresh run of shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, and zip-ups in time for this day! We also expect to have gift cards available for the first time at the new store! We are also going to be putting out at least a hundred extra used records into the store for the first time! Wow! We will also have a few record players for sale!
Then there is a show happening at 7:00 pm that night at our space with five acts. This includes Kate The Band, who we all know and love. This also includes “Pretty Pleased” – a guy from Chicago whose music you can find streaming on the player below. Right smack dab in the middle is Ricki Marvel (formerly Eric Marvel), playing some of that electronic new wave music. Before that is… Animals with Human Names! Playing some old school hip hop after he gets done perusing our hip hop section in the store and taking advantage of that 25% off sale. Opening things up is Kenyon DeShasier playing some sweet sweet and refreshing indie pop.
