Alright friends, we have the list ready for everyone. We got just about everything we asked for this go around and we are most pleased. There are a few items on here notated with a * these titles are in very high demand and we have a limited quantity. Many of these are limited to the same amount for every store across the US due to high demand. So, if you're coming for those then be sure to get here early. The April event line started in the wee hours of the morning, but last year's Black Friday event started around 7:00am. Remember: first come, first served and we will limit you to one title of each. (meaning you can't buy all of the Olivia Rodrigos, you only get one per person!)
We will have coffee, tea and treats for those coming up to the stand in line early. If you're new to this event, we have a lot of fun and we keep the line moving so everyone can get in and out about their day. We cannot hold any items, no matter who or why. It's part of the national Record Store Day rules.
All of these titles are IN ADDITION to our large selection of new and used vinyl records, CDs, and cassette tapes.

We're excited to announce that all of the product we will have for Record Store Day has arrived! We are only missing 4 titles we requested due to demand nationwide, and 2 titles that have been moved to the next Record Store Day event in November (tentatively) including Jerry Lee Lewis. Sadly, we will not be getting Maya Hawke, Kip Moore, Alex Chilton & James Moore despite being initially allotted those titles. The decision was made at a national level to only send those to larger stores in higher density metros.
All that said, we got everything else we asked for!!! We even got more copies of the 1975, Husker Du & Porcupine Tree than we expected. We were told most stores would only get 1 copy of each of these due to demand, but we will have more than one copy in the shop of those highly anticipated titles! We aren't allowed to share how many we got, BUT if you really want one of those - get in line early. Alright, here's the full & final list we will have in the shop on Saturday - can't wait to see all of you!
REMEMBER: doors open Saturday, April 22nd @ 9am. First come, first served. No holds. We will have A LOT of Taylor Swift, but it's really a hot one this year so we could sell out early. First 20 customers will get official Record Store Day swag bags & Sudden Light Record goodies.

Alright, the Record Store Day 2023 list is now live! Send me an email or a message on Instagram with your wishlist. I'll be putting the order in a couple of weeks, but don't be shy.
If you've never done Record Store Day - here's how it works:
- Exclusive record, CD & cassettes are available ONLY to independent record stores.
- We will order what we think our customers really want, but nothing is guranteed and we cannot do any holds or pre-orders.
- We will know about about a week beforehand what the store will get and how many, so keep a look out for that list.
- Doors open at 9am but the line started at 7am last year, so if you really want something - get here early.
- We'll have snacks and drinks for those in line, and fortunately the deck is covered so you don't have to worry about rain!
Here's the full list of what we will have available in the record store on Black Friday 2022.
