A big thanks to everyone that came out for Record Store Day! This was by far our biggest and best one yet. We couldn’t believe it when we showed up an hour before the doors opened and there was already a sizable line. You guys are crazy! In the best possible sense, of course.
Behind the scenes things were a little bit nerve wracking. The last couple of days leading up to RSD we weren’t even sure we were going to have any records! The distributor was having trouble getting orders shipped. This didn’t just affect us. A whole bunch of stores across the country were on pins and needles. Fortunately for us the folks at the local UPS hub worked some magic and got us our order by 8AM that morning. A little too close for comfort, but it all worked out in the end.
We had almost twice as many RSD releases than last year. But we know some people were disappointed that we didn’t have, or we ran out of, the titles they were after. We are sorry about that, but that is the nature of the RSD beast. We would love to make everyone happy, but these items are so limited that it is impossible to do so. We hope you were able to leave with at least one item you were after. If not, then we hope you snagged some good used records that you have been looking for.
Thanks again for your continued support. You guys rock. 359 days until Record Store Day 2015. Keep spinning that vinyl!
