Record Store Day/Black Friday

Record Store Day celebrated it’s 10 year anniversary on April 22, 2017. It has become iconic and an extremely important day for the world of independent music. Over 1500 stores celebrate and participate, not only in the United States, but it many other countries throughout the world.

Record Store Day generally takes place on the third Saturday in April, while the Black Friday event takes place, well, it takes place on Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving of course).

As in generally this case , we order a boat load of titles, more than in the past, hoping to get most of them, and we usually do! If you click on the link below, a PDF file will pop up in another window and you can take a look at what we will have available.

For both events, the store opens “officially” at 6:30am and we start ringing things up at 7:00am. Steve may get to the store much earlier than 6:30 and let waiting folks come into the store and hang out if they so choose. We will start passing out numbers at 5:00am for those that want to go back to the car and catch a few winks, or head to a local Ma and Pa restaurant and get something to eat.

Each year, we generally showcase a local area artist to add some live entertainment to the mix. And, we like to invite local area food trucks to stop by in case our patrons are in the mood for some grub. Stay tuned for specific information as we upload or post specific information pertinent to the event taking place in the current year.

Here’s the link to a list of what we had available for the 2018 Record Store Day to view as an example of the type of info that we post: KTS RSD LIST
