Record Store Day Black Friday Vinyl Highlights 2016

The day after Thanksgiving, or Black Friday, traditionally kicks off the holiday shopping season, but for us we know it as Record Store Day Black Friday! A wide range of must-have collectible new release 7"s, EPs, and full-length albums will hit independent record stores starting on Friday, November 25th. In addition to carrying 100+ RSDBF releases, our stores will also have special one-day sales on turntables, gift certificates (3-4pm), posters, headphones & more. See what's happening at Amoeba on Black Friday.

Once the limited RSDBF releases are gone, they're gone, so be sure to do your research on everything we'll be getting here at Amoeba (download the full .pdf list). Please note: All Record Store Day Black Friday items are limit one per customer, no holds or phone orders. 

If you can't make it in to one of our stores on 11/25, there's still hope you can snag one of these titles. We'll add remaining RSDBF releases to starting Saturday, 11/26.
