Record Store Day is Coming...And We've Been Saving Some Juicy Stuff for April 20

Posted by Amoebite, April 13, 2013 12:45pm | Post a Comment

 April 20 is almost here and you know what that means... RECORD STORE DAY!!! Our favorite holiday, celebrating the glorious musical community of independent record stores! Real record stores are where music lives and thrives, and anyone who works or shops at a neighborhood record store deserves their very own day of glory.

For Amoeba it's one of our best days of the year, when we throw open our doors and welcome one of the biggest communities of music lovers ever assembled under one roof. YOU ARE Record Store Day!

Of course there are hundreds of exclusive RSD releases, and folks line up hours in advance to grab the rarest of the rare. This year features the biggest lineup of exclusive releases yet, featuring records by everyone from The Cure to the Grateful Dead to Notorious B.I.G.. As always, line up early to snag those exquisite jams! The Coffee Bean is providing coffee for the early birds at Amoeba Hollywood, so they'll keep you nice and caffeinated that morning.

But it's more than just the RSD releases. We've been saving up treats and collections and goodies and rare stuff for months, and it's all hitting the floor on April 20th. It'll be a bonanza you won't want to miss! Our pricers and our warehouse staff have been prepping tons of rare records, posters, DVDs, books, 45s, toys and collectables, and piling it high in the warehouse in preparation for the big day. We're putting out bins and bins of fresh CDs in every department. Boxes and boxes of fresh 45s. It's like a whole holiday shopping season in one day and you're a part of it!
