RSD Drops 2021 - Saturday, June 12 and Saturday, July 17
Record Store Day Drops 2021
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!
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.
Amoeba Hollywood will be open 11AM - 9PM on Saturday, June 12. Please note, the Trade Counter will be closed all day, but will handle returns/exchanges as needed.
RECORD STORE DAY T-SHIRTS:
Hollywood will have two limited edition Record Store Day silkscreened designs by LA artist Sam Grinberg. The shirts will be available for $12 at the registers (while supplies last) with proceeds benefiting Silverlake Conservatory of Music’s Scholarship Program (their Virtual 5K Funk Run happens June 19th & 20th). Thanks to our friends ANTI-/Epitaph for their generous support!
Liz Phair is doing a virtual in-store on Amoeba Hollywood’s Instagram to celebrate Record Store Day and the release of her new album Soberish, out now on Chrysalis Records. On her first new album in over a decade, Liz maintains the sass that propelled her to become a critical darling, and that innate ear for melody and razor sharp way with words. Welcome back Miss Phair, we've missed you. Watch the virtual in-store at instagram.com/amoebahollywood on Saturday, 6/12 at 3PM PT / 6PM ET.
