RECORD STORE DAY PREGAME!
Info to help you out!
Until we have physical records delivered to our doorstep, what you read on the internet is rumors, teasers, and hopes for Record Store Day releases that will maybe become reality. Vinyl is always subject to manufacturing delays, scheduling conflicts, tight budgets, and poor planning. There are always things that aren't done in time, but come out later. Some things can't get done in time, and are cancelled all together. Reality sucks.
HOW WE DECIDE WHAT TO ORDER
We order RSD releases by bands we carry in the store the other 364 days of the year. Every store decides what RSD titles to order based on their own criteria, and that will differ from store to store; therefore, the selection of RSD releases will also vary from store to store. PLEASE NOTE that we cannot accept preorders or special orders for any Record Store Day titles. We are a Record Store Day pledged store!
WHAT WE ORDER IS ALMOST NEVER WHAT WE GET
Placing orders for RSD releases is a total guessing game. Every release is limited, and the demand for each release varies greatly. We have to place orders anticipating that our order might be cut, and do our best to try and get quantities that will meet demand, but in many cases, the limited nature of releases means that the distro or label has to allocate orders. We have no idea how they go about this process, but it results in us often receiving less than what we ordered, and in some cases, we get shut out completely. So, despite our best efforts to get what think our customers might want, in the end, what we actually receive is out of our hands.
UK RELEASES VS. US RELEASES
Some releases are UK only. We can't get them. As we post our lists of what we have ordered, if there's something NOT on that list that you think we would carry, that probably means it's an overseas release.
Get here early. Expect a line.
Prioritize your list and realize you might not get something. Anywhere. Ever.
In addition to RSD releases, buy something else, too. It'll make you feel good.
Go to several stores. There are other stores in the area that participate in RSD. Support them, too. We all need you.
Whether you already have a Cool Card, or want to sign up for the first time, please note that we will NOT be giving cat stamps on Record Store Day. Our little inky kitty just can't handle that volume, and we need to check you out as quickly as possible! Instead, if you would like to get stamps for your RSD purchases, or would like to sign up for a Cool Card for the first time, and get stamps for your RSD purchases, you can come back to the store with your RSD receipt within 1 month (4pm on Sunday, March 18th), and we will get you all caught up!
We let a certain number of people in the door initially, then it's 1 in for every 1 out. This keeps the store from getting too crowded. Folks find what they want faster, and more easily, too. ALL Record Store Day releases are limitied to 1 copy of each title per person.
We do NOT endorse eBay flippers.
As always, CASH is preferred! It keeps us from having to pay fees to the stupid credit card companies, and gets you checked out the fastest! On that note, we also have a new credit card processing system, and can now check out credit card paying customers faster then ever!
If you are paying with a credit card, and it's not signed, or you wrote "SEE ID" on it, please have your ID out, and ready to be checked! We DO check!
On Waterloo, you can also find records at Blue Arrow Records, This Way Out, and Star Pop!
Plan to spend the day on Waterloo! There will be LOTS happening!
The first 50+ customers through the checkout will receive a goody bag filled with lots of great stuff! The earlier you check out, the better your bag will be!
