21 Record Store Day Black Friday Titles to Look for

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? Is it awesome new tunes, out in unexpected formats, filled with "previously unreleased" promise? Head out to Black Friday at Amoeba on November 29th and you'll be counting your blessings, whether your "blessing" of choice is a picture disc, first-ever vinyl pressing, or limited edition 7" single. This year's Record Store Day Black Friday releases feature some of the most exciting titles to pass through our stores on any RSD -- both the annual April extravaganza and the November retail rocker included.

Part of what makes RSD Black Friday so spcial is the limited nature of many of these releases, so take a look at this year's .pdf menu of titles and plan ahead. If you can't make it in to one of our stores on 11/29, there's still hope you can snag one of these titles. We'll add remaining RSDBF releases to Amoeba.com starting Saturday, 11/30 at 5am PT.

The Damned's forthcoming April 13 2018 album Evil Spirits (pre-order on CD)
& pre-order on Lp/vinyl precedes this summer's performance by the
veteran UK band at Burger Boogaloo 2018

If over the past few weeks you’ve driven by Telegraph Ave. and 40th Streets near the MacArthur BART station in North Oakland and looked up you’ll have noticed the big billboard for this year’s Burger Boogaloo festival that takes every summer just a few blocks away at Mosswood Park. That's where the excellent annual two-day outdoor festival will be again happening this year on the weekend of June 30th and July 1st. As seen in the new billboard’s large font, returning for his fourth year as the penultimate host will be the eternally entertaining John Waters. Meanwhile the 2018 musician lineup continues the quality hard-rocking caliber of previous Boogaloo lineups (last year Iggy Pop and The Buzzcocks ruled as headliners) with 2018 top billing going to Devo and The Damned. The Damned’s appearance coincides with recent news of the band’s first new album in a decade and their first since 2008’s  So, Who’s Paranoid. Entitled Evil Spirits the decidedly retro-sounding, soon-to-drop forthcoming Tony Visconti produced album will be released a week from today on April 13th.  But in the meantime you can pre-order Evil Spirits on CD and Evil Spirits on Lp/vinyl.

We just acquired an incredible collection of punk and new wave 7" records here at Amoeba Hollywood. Starting Saturday, February 25th you'll get the chance to peruse around 1,000 choice pieces of collectible wax when this collection is rolled out onto our stage for your shopping pleasure. Expect to see lots of UK pressings and a handful of Japanese pressings; most of what you'll find is a first pressing or an early pressing. This is the good stuff, people!

Although most of these 45s fall under the punk or new wave genre headings, we've also got some pretty rad crust, powerpop, and hardcore releases. If you're lucky, you'll be able to snap up some coveted releases from The Nerves, Misfits, Germs, Buzzcocks, Sex Pistols, Ramones, The Plugz, Generation X, The Rotters, Avengers, and X-Ray Spex. We've also got plenty of stuff for fans of The Jam, The Zeros, 999, The Clash, Sham 69, Dead Kennedys, The Damned, Devo, Cockney Rejects, The B-52s, and the Dangerhouse label.
