Record Store Day Drops 2021

RSD Drops 2021

What Is Record Store Day?

Record Store Day is an annual global celebration of record stores, our unique culture, and the important role record stores play in our local communities. This year, there will be two Record Store Day Drops – THIS Saturday, June 12 and Saturday, July 17 – each with a different selection of exclusive limited edition releases available only at independent record stores. Come celebrate Record Store Day with Amoeba!

Exclusive Releases
We will have hundreds of limited edition exclusive releases available at our stores on 6/12 and 7/17. View 6/12 PDF | View 7/17 PDF

RSD product is limited to stock on hand and available on a first come, first served basis. No holds, no phone orders. Limit one copy per title per customer. We cannot accept any store coupons on RSD releases.
There will be a limited selection of RSD titles available online at starting at 10am PT on each drop, with remaining titles added to the website the following day.
Please note: Due to local government restrictions currently in place to help limit the spread of COVID-19, we are temporarily unable to ship international orders.

How Does Record Store Day Work
Our stores use a menu system with our staff pulling RSD titles for customers in the morning. Customers who want RSD titles will line up outside in the morning, wearing a face covering and maintaining 6 feet of social distance from one another, and fill out their menus. If you don't want the limited edition Record Store Day titles, you are welcome to come in the store and shop normally. Amoeba staffers will collect the menus in order and give customers a clip to retrieve their bag. It is very important that you hang on to this clip as it is how you will pick up your RSD items.

We will fill each customer's request for RSD items in order to ensure that the items are being sold fairly according to their place in line. Once the bags are filled, they will be waiting for the customer at the registers in SF & LA. Berkeley will have a separate table near the registers where they will announce the clip numbers when the bags are ready. Hand the employee your clip to claim your bag. You can go over your menu, compare it to the items in your bag, and put back anything you may not want at that time.
