It’s Record Store Day!
We are proud to be one of the oldest record stores in the Twin Cities, with more than twenty-five years on East Lake Street and many more to come! This day provides us the opportunity to express to you our appreciation by presenting live music by some of the best live performers in town.
Here’s a few quick answers to questions: Yes, we have limited Record Store Day releases. We have been answering questions about which release and how many all week, but it is likely today we will not be able to answer your specific email or phone call as quickly as we usually do during the rest of the year. We open at 11am. And yes, there is usually a line. We do our best to talk with those in line about the release they’re hoping to snag, and where to find it. Also, there’s no line shortly thereafter and for the rest of the day.
Yes, we have live music all day. Details for this are below. It’s pretty awesome, we hope you’ll come by just to see these amazing people — you won’t be disappointed. Yes, there is food and drinks available at the block party. This courtesy of our incredible neighbors, Peppers & Fries. They are going to be very busy tomorrow, and we hope you will visit them again on another sunny Saturday, or any day of the week.
The one ‘no’ answer is that today would not be a good day to bring your record collection to the shop. We’d love to help you and we pride ourselves on making the process of selling records fair and transparent and maybe even a little fun, but it’s not likely to go quickly for you today because the neighborhood is going to be crowded.
