Coming up this Saturday, April 18, is that ultra-cool, ultra-fresh international holiday Record Store Day! It's a whole day designed to celebrate the independent record store! So, all three Amoeba Music stores plan to celebrate in our classic, over the top Amoeba fashion!

- Kelley Stoltz (Sub Pop): 3-4pm
- John Vanderslice (Dead Oceans): 4-5pm
- Aesop Rock (Definitive Jux): 5-6pm
All three Amoebas will also be selling CDs, records and 7"s specially released in limited quantities just for Record Store Day from artists such as Sonic Youth, Beck, Bob Dylan, The Smiths and Tom Waits, plus many more. Additionally, everyone who comes in and buys something gets a goodie bag full of swag such as pins, CD's, 7"s, posters, stickers, patches, shirts and more! There will also be a drawing every hour for special giveaways from 12pm-5pm.
This page has a great overview of everything that will be going on at all the stores and the special, exclusive releases we will have in stock on Saturday.
See you all Saturday!
