The countdown continues! With the sixth annual Record Store Day just around the corner, all three Amoeba locations are gearing up for the biggest and best one yet! If you are reading this Amoeblog post, then you probably have already celebrated a few of these and know that this is our Xmas. It's the one day of the year that hundreds of independently owned music stores across the world simultaneously unite with the purpose of celebrating their culture and the unique place that they occupy in both their local communities and the world. THINK GLOBAL, PEOPLE. 

Special vinyl, DVD, and CD releases are made exclusively for this holy day! This stuff is LIMITED and is destined to go up in value (for people who value limited, exclusive, and amazing stuff). Find out just what sort of exclusive stuff I'm talking about by viewing or downloading this RSD EXCLUSIVE RELEASES PDF. You'll also want to know what's happening at the Amoeba closest to YOU, so check out what we have planned for you record fans and fiends...

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

 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!

Jesse Ware

What started out as a chance gig singing backup for an old friend quickly blossomed into a bona fide career as a leading lady.

Already a hit in the UK, the single "Wildest Moments" has given Ware major buzz and promises to help make Devotion a hit with her growing US fanbase. Taking musical cues from the likes of  SADE and  Annie Lennox, Ware creates polished electro/neo-soul influenced songs that translate well in her live performance. Catch Jesse Ware live at Amoeba in San Francisco, Thursday April 11th as she performs songs from her new album, Devotion (out 4/16). Performance starts at 6:30pm. Free, all-ages show.
