San Diego Record Roundup

Amoeba Music, the country's biggest and best independent Record Store, is inviting San Diego residents to bring their unwanted LPs, CDs and music collections to our Record Round Up at the King's Inn the weekend of Oct. 23-25.

We're bringing buyers down from our stores in San Francisco and Los Angeles to meet folks in San Diego and create a convenient way for area residents to get top dollar in cash for all resellable items. Sellers may also opt to get even MORE in credit for our stores or shopping on


Sellers may bring in any amount of CDs or VINYL formats (including LP, 12”, 45s and 78s), and buyers will inspect and evaluate each item, add them all up and make a cash offer! Only items in playable condition will be considered for purchase. Prices offered vary widely based on title and condition and the retail value; see below for a list of most sought after genres**. Valid government-issued I.D. is required for all cash transactions.

Sellers can bring us their stuff anytime between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. during the first two days of the event and up until 4 p.m. Sunday, and we will happily help you unload and bring in your used vinyl and CDs. We are also open to buying any original music and concert posters. Our buyers are friendly, fast, efficient and will work hard to keep your experience fun and as quick as possible. 

It's EASY to sell your collection. Whether it’s those “hard copies” that are taking space on your shelves, a collection or estate of a family member, or your own personal collection, we can pay you cash on the spot and bring those records back into the world for another generation to enjoy! Skip the three-hour drive to L.A. and liquidate your unwanted records and CDs without leaving town.

Labeled “a modish ripoff of William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing,” the play features new music by Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong. The play follows four lads from Liverpool who woo the ladies of London with their music but end up in a comedy of errors. The play is written by Pulitzer Prize finalist Rolin Jones and directed by Jackson Gay.

Green Day’s rock opera concept album American Idiot was previously made into a successful play of the same name.
