Record Store Day 2020 Postponed To June 20th

As announced earlier today, this year’s Record Store Day, initially planned for April 18th, is being postponed by two months until Saturday June 20th, 2020.  This decision seems both wise in light of the overwhelming impact of the COVID-19/Coronavirus threat that has already impacted so many big events being canceled or postponed (EG: Coachella and SXSW) and with news this week, following Trump’s ban on European air travel and with states such as California banning club/public events of over 250 people, countless nightclub events, artist tours and concerts are all been put on hold for now.

In their official announcement earlier today the folks at the Record Store Day headquarters wrote in part that, “We’ve decided that the best of all possible moves is to change the date of Record Store Day this year ….We think this gives stores around the world the best chance to have a profitable, successful Record Store Day, while taking into consideration the recommendations of doctors, scientists, the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, and the need to be good citizens of both local and worldwide communities.” 

Read the full announcement here.  And stay tuned to the Amoeba Music website for updates on the RSD2020 releases which, hopefully now, may even include additional exclusive RSD titles given the two extra months of planning. And please stay safe and healthy and positive and listen to music and if you decide not to venture out to record shop at this time, do your Amoeba Music shopping online where there's still six days left to enter the Robert Plant Print + Limited Edition 7" Box Set.
