RECORD STORE DAY 2018 IS APRIL 21ST:
Launched in 2007 with the humble idea to recognize independent record stores, Record Store Day (RSD) has mushroomed ever since. The RSD list of LP and CD exclusives continues to expand, while more labels continue to throw open their catalogs to an appreciative customer base.
Beyond the day-long frenzy, RSD exists to offer proof of the lively role record stores play in the community and a chance for folks on both sides of the counter to offer gratitude for each other. Whether you’re a hardcore type who times their arrival for a spot at the front of the line or somebody who waits until the afternoon for a more leisurely experience, we hope you’ll join us on Saturday, April 21.
For all details on pressing quantities, production credits, alternate versions, color vinyl, and other record datum, please refer to the Official Record Store Day list of releases, located at www.recordstoreday.com
Changes and additions to this list are likely, leading all the way up until the big day, and will be reflected on our list as we receive them. If you see a RSD release that does not appear on this list, don't hesitate to email or call to see if it will be available!
THE LIST IS NOW AVAILABLE HERE!
We'll be operating our Record Store Day (RSD) wish list the same way as years past. A wish is not an order. And while we will try to have ample stock (one of the deepest in the midwest) of all items on the morning of Record Store Day, please know that some of these products are extremely limited and will sell out quickly. Wishlists will be updated online before RSD. THE INITIAL DEADLINE TO CREATE OR MODIFY A WISHLIST IS WEDNEDAY MARCH 14TH.

MONROE STREET ROAD CONSTRUCION UPDATE:
As Monroe Street goes from potholes to rubble to pavement, we extend gratitude to all our customers who still venture our way. Record diggers are a hearty bunch. We’ll still be putting out over 500 incoming used records every Friday morning and we’ll remain on top of all the newest sounds. And while you’re in our neck of the woods, show our neighbors some love. Monroe Street is a great place to eat, drink, exercise, get sharp and get out. We’ve been here since 1992. So far, we like it.
Our next MUSIC TRIVIA at the High Noon Saloon is Tuesday, April 10th. Registration starts at 5:30 with the first question from Angie and Marty at 6PM. Save the date for May 8th!
