Our first Record Store Day “Drop Date” at the end of last month seamed to go really well, so for the next one coming up on Saturday, September 26th (just less than a couple of weeks away), we are kicking it up one more notch (just a smidgen).
Record Store Day, which is usually a big annual event for us and other record stores around the globe in April, had been pushed back to June this year due to Covid-19, and then again to three separate “drop dates” in August, September, and October to still get exclusive records out to collectors and fans while trying to avoid crowds as much as possible.
For this second drop date on Saturday, September 26th – we are opening our store a tad bit earlier than usual at 10:00 am, and will be open until 7:00 pm. Our arcade will be open during those hours as well, limiting to four people at a time. We are still limiting the total amount of people in our building to ten.
We did order still a very limited amount of RSD exclusive releases this time around, and will also be planning on dropping an amount of new and used vinyl onto the shelves for the first time on that day. Some of the RSD exclusive releases we plan on getting include: George Clinton, Batman & Robin, Death Piggy, Destiny’s Child, The Doors, Fleetwood Mac, Jerry Garcia, Dizzy Gillespie, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Jimi Hendrix, Hootie & The Blowfish, Meat Puppets, Mott The Hoople, Primus, Ramones, Replacements, Residents, Britney Spears, Tegan & Sara, and the Hackers soundtrack. ***Note, we are not guaranteed to get any of those titles, and the ones we get are first-come, first-serve.
More info on all of those titles is available at recordstoreday.com.
