Black Friday Record Store Day 2012 / Big Black Weekend Sale

Along with all of the super limited Black Friday Record Store Releases we did get we also have this nifty sale going on. Everything is on sale 15% off. Things in the store over a year (little number on price tag ends in "1") are 25% off. Anything older than that (little number ends in "0" or god forbid an "9") is 50% off!!!!

*Due to the limited nature of the Black Friday Releases and some of their very high costs to us, they are not included in this sale. Sorry. The limited releases are first come, first served and many things we got much less than we ordered, and some stuff isn't here yet so I'm still crossing my fingers. 

Oh yeah, I guess this is technically our 7th Anniversary too since we opened on the day after Thanksgiving in 2005. So this is our present to you. We enjoy the present of your presence. And vegan treats too if you have them!

We will open at 9 AM on Friday.

Thanks for a wonderful 7 years - Scott, Michael, & Lee


The same people that brought you Record Store Day the last four Aprils are back this November with a little holiday shopping treat. Record Store Day is gathering up some more super-limited, extra-choice collectible records for release on Black Friday.

The list below includes just some of the titles being released. Like the regular Record Store Day, there are some stipulations. Because of the insanely limited nature of these releases, we cannot guarantee that we will have stock of every title. We may only get a fraction of what we order or we may not get any copies of some titles at all. Therefore, there will be no pre-orders taken, no holds, and in the sake of fairness, we will limit each customer to one copy of any title and reserve the right to set a limit of the total number of pieces. We want everybody to have a shot at getting some of this good stuff. We ordered a little of everything to try to make everyone happy, but there are some things we surely won't have enough of…but as far as I know of right now unless something weird happens we will have some copies of all of these titles.


Record Store Day is an event put on for independent record stores. Bands and labels release Limited Edition items for sale exclusively in indie stores. There are 2 events every year, the Main Event in April and then a smaller event in November called Black Friday. Most of the really good stuff and the really limited items sell out that day and fetch high prices on the after market. Some items remain after the initial day but it's hard to ever figure which items will sell out fast and which will stick around. Either way, most of the items, when they're gone, they're gone, and I won't be able to stock them again.
