Record Store Day 2020 Moved To June 20th


There’s some big cancellations and postponements going on these past few days that we are trying our best to keep up with impacting our store, shows, and more. Since we are involved with so many different events in and outside of our space, we are taking things step by step and case by case to make the right decisions regarding safety and heath. We’ll do our best to let you all know of any cancellations through here.

Of course many of you are aware that the Annual Springfield St. Patrick’s Day Parade downtown has been cancelled or postponed to a later date. This means no elephant.

The other big postponement affecting us and what is usually the biggest day of the year for our store is Record Store Day 2020. That has been moved to Saturday June 20th, 2020. Here’s the statement from Record Store Day:

Record Store Day is a worldwide event celebrating record stores and their place in the community. In the interest of being good members of those local, national and worldwide communities, we’ve decided to move the date of Record Store Day 2020 to JUNE 20.

The basic plan is to shift everything to that date, but there are a lot of people and things involved with a worldwide event like this, and a lot of moving pieces, so be nice to your record store if they don’t have an immediate answer to your questions. We’re all working on, well, everything.

Wash your hands. Take care. We want everyone to be happy, healthy and looking forward to getting together for the party. #RSD20#RSDJUNE20

We are thankful that Record Store Day still can take place as of right now and we hope you all will still come out in support of your local record stores. The list of exclusive releases is still in order and can be found on the Record Store Day website – we have put in our order already, and everything is still going as planned, just for a later date.

As far as our shows go, things are rapidly changing every day and even every hour. Many touring bands are cancelling tours right now, and we currently have 25 shows featuring mostly touring acts from now until the end of the summer. We will be taking shows step by step and case by case, and letting you all know of any cancellations.
Our store will remain open from 10:00am – 8:00pm at 418 E Monroe Street here downtown. We are a small business that will be negatively impacted by these cancellations. If you wish to continue supporting us in some way, we also have thousands of records and CDs listed for sale online at all times.
