Music fans staked out their spots in line early yesterday evening, eagerly awaiting the moment we'd throw open our doors here at Amoeba Hollywood and give them the chance to pick up some coveted Record Store Day exclusives. By 8:30am the line traveled down Ivar, around the block, and back up Cahuenga. The good people at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf kept everyone in line this morning caffeinated, refreshed, and nourished, thanks to their awesome array of complimentary beverages and treats. Store employees kept busy pulling titles for customers who had waited in line and filled out menus in hopes of scoring some of the day's most popular titles. Some of the first releases to get snapped up included those by Keane, The Sundays, Jack White, Pink Floyd, and yesterday's birthday boy, Mr. Iggy Pop.

The festivities continue this afternoon with free gift bags, live silk screening, special guest DJ sets and signings. Outside the store you can give the prize wheel a spin, get a caricature or an RSD themed airbrush tattoo, and enjoy a veritable cornucopia of gastronomic delights and cool tunes. Full schedule can be found here. To get a glimpse of this morning's fun, watch the video and check out our photo gallery below full of cute kids, devoted fans, and RSD shenanigans.
