17th Of April 2015 Update of New and Key Restocked Items +
RECORD STORE DAY PREVIEW!
at Redscroll Records
In this update you will be able to read and get excited over the list of available items in our store for Record Store Day (April 18th, 2015; Hours 8AM-10PM). If you’ve been through before on RSD you know the deal and what to expect, but just in case you’re new or need a refresher I’m going to go over a few things:
This map shows where you should be able to park with ease. There is a free lot across the street from our front door (entrance besides Western Fashion Y Mas and also on the far side from off Center Street) and also across the train tracks from our back door (near Brothers Restaurant). There will be spots marked off for our RSD Tent (where the line will form) and for food trucks. Spots will also be specifically marked as designated for our neighbors (got to keep in good graces with them) – please heed these and be good!
Record Store Day is HUGE these days. Not just here, but everywhere. Articles about how huge Record Store has gotten and people’s feelings on it have been flooding my feed this past week.
Be aware, we are doing our best to quicken things up year to year. We are doing our best to make your visit and possible long wait in line as comfortable (even pleasurable) as possible.
Food trucks will be arriving in the morning (Hardcore Sweets [cupcakes] will probably arrive early-ish, G-Monkey will be arriving at about 10AM).
If you plan to stand in line for releases please plan accordingly. If you are in line please have friends/neighbors (we’re all friends here, right?) near you keep your spot to go to a donut shop, local purveyor, what-have-you to get a snack/breakfast and/or use the bathroom (use the honor system with respect and DO NOT hold spots for people that are not there yet [your friend arriving later must line up in the back]). Once you see any of us here (we should be there around 6AM) and you need to use the bathroom let us know and we’ll help you out. We will have someone patrolling the line and handing out water as well. It’s supposed to be pretty warm – dress appropriately!
As much as we’d like to have every possible thing on hand in quantities exactly matching the demand it just can’t work that way. We order a tremendous amount as do many other stores. We are allocated certain amounts of things and ultimately we get a lot because we put in the leg work. That said, we get less than we order and in some cases we miss out on items completely (trust us, it’s not purposeful by any stretch). We want everyone to be happy in the end so be excellent to each other.
Goodie bags will be available for the first 100 or so (that number is not exact, but close) folks to check out. Bags differ greatly in content and are generally full of fun stuff from such friends as: Lovecraft Tattoo, Manic Productions, Arc Agency, Brass City Boss Sounds, Shogun Screenprinting, No Idea, Run For Cover, Twin Lakes Records, Peppermint Daydream Records, Square of Opposition, Krust Pizza Bourbon Bar, Erased Tapes, Sub Pop, No Idea, Topshelf Records, Deathwish, and a whole lot more!
