Important Black Friday 2018 Record Store Day Information

Thanks for planning to visit us for Record Store Black Friday! Here is a bit more detailed information on the day:

We cannot answer for certain what RSD releases we will have in stock, or the quantity, as titles are still arriving and allocations on the number ordered are customary for Record Store Day releases. We have ordered approximately 85% to 90% of special Black Friday titles and ordered heavily on those titles that we are super excited about, tha

t make the most sense for our customer base, and fit with our regular sales information. For a full list of Black Friday Record Store Day Releases, visit Record Store Day


We will be opening 2 hours early on Black Friday at 9am. Line forms with the first person who shows up and will run west on Frankfort (toward the river, Hilltop, Sweet Surrender, etc). THIS YEAR WE WILL BE CLOSING AT 9PM.

Getting in Structure:

When 9am hits, we will begin letting in the first people in line, 5 people at a time, in 3-5 minute intervals.  So, if you’re 16th in line, you’ll be in the store by 9:09 to 9:15ish. Please be courteous to our neighbors and each other as you wait.


All Special Release Black Friday RSD items will be primarily on the wall and column shelves with overflow in the front of the record bins in the punk-indie-alternative section. LP releases will line the walls in alphabetical order, starting to the immediate left and running clockwise through the entire store. All RSD merch will be clearly labeled with orange price stickers. Pieces placed on the columns will be in random order.  Box sets will likely be in a special section devoted just to them. As always, if you need help locating an item, just ask. We are happy to help!

If you are looking for new releases, those LPs will be in the New Release Bins by date.


NO HOLDING SPACES IN LINE - but be neighborly if your line partner needs to excuse him/herself for a moment.

Only 1 RSD item of its kind per person (i.e. No, we’re super sorry but you can’t pick up an extra special release for a friend.)

No holds on special RSD releases.


In addition to special releases we will run 10% off all regularly priced merchandise and a buy one get one deal on cheap LPs! (excluding already on sale items, consignment, and RSD18 merch)
