Outside Amoeba Berkeley an hour before opening on Record Store Day - April 20th, 2013

Like Christmas in April is how some of the dedicated music fans I talked with outside Amoeba Berkeley this morning described Record Store Day. And today's Record Store Day seems to be the biggest and most popular yet. When I stopped by Amoeba Berkeley earlier this week to chat with Steve Cirelli about Record Store Day (RSD) he recommended RSD fans get there an hour before the 10:30am opening. So this morning I arrived at the Telegraph Avenue Amoeba Music at 9:30am expecting the line to be just beginning to form. However there was already a long line by that time with those at the top of the line there since before dawn [for a rare Dave Matthews Band RSD release]. A lot of RSD fans won't divulge exactly what RSD titles they are specifically looking for - as you will see in the video above in which I chat with a bunch of the music fans from as far away as Indonesia - all outside Amoeba Berkeley this morning, Saturday, April 20th, 2013.

Check back on the Amoeblog for updates from the Berkeley, Hollywood, and San Francisco Amoeba Music stores throughout Record Store Day 2013.

Record Store Day Countdown: Cheech & Chong 12"

Posted by Amoebite, April 19, 2013 06:14pm | Post a Comment

For our final preview in our Record Store Day countdown (and in honor of RSD falling on 4/20), we're ending with Cheech & Chong's amazing foray into glam rock from Up In Smoke. Cheech is androgynous glitter cyborg Alice Bowie belting out "Earache My Eye" (b/w "Turn That Thing Down")! Total heaviosity that's as hilarious as it is thunderously hard rockin'. No self-respecting stoner should be without this exclusive green vinyl 45. See you at Amoeba tomorrow for Record Store Day!

Steve Cirelli @ Amoeba Berkeley Talks About Record Store Day 2013

With Record Store Day (RSD) 2013 almost upon us and vinyl collector fiends counting down the hours left before they can descend upon one of the three Amoeba Music stores on Saturday (April 20th) to cop some of the numerous RSD only releases I thought it would interesting to see what the folks behind the scenes at Amoeba had to say about Record Store Day. So I headed over to the Berkeley Amoeba Music store on Telegraph Ave. to chat with Steve Cerelli, to talk a bit about Record Store Day. That short video is above. Below is another new video made by Chris at Bull Moose about some of the Record Store Day 2013 releases being unveiled on Saturday.
