RECORD STORE DAY WILL BE GOLDEN
HERE ARE THE 15 RULES
KEEP YOUR EARS OPEN FOR FURTHER UPDATES BUT THIS IS THE BLUEPRINT
It’s that time of year and I am getting it together believe it or not. More info will be added as we press ahead toward RSD 2016. If you want to know if we have an item see Rule #3, we have ordered them all but DAVE’S RECORDS FINAL RSD 2016 LIST will not be FINALIZED until Friday(APRIL 15)before RSD2015(Saturday, April 16). Phone calls, e-mails, tweets, or any other form of communication up to and including Morse Code/Semaphore/Smoke Signals ,etc. will be counterproductive and will not get you the answer you need as to what we will ACTUALLY have. WAIT FOR THE LIST and all those questions will be answered. In the past we have had a pretty good fill so we should have a pretty high percentage of ALL of the releases available. Also if you choose to call ON RECORD STORE DAY to ask if we still have an item…THE PHONE WILL BE OFF THE HOOK until roughly 2PM as we will be attending those who dare to take a chance and actually come in to find their RSD treasures. I will try to update the Twitter feed as much as possible when we run out of items. As the afternoon progresses, we will be more able to address questions in the normal fashion but Record Store Day is not a normal day. It is for those people who still do the hard work of shopping for records in ACTUAL PHYSICAL SPACES FILLED WITH REAL PHYSICAL MUSIC. COME GET PHYSICAL WITH US! The third Saturday in April is traditionally Record Store Day…if you want to know what day it will fall on in the future. And now with no further ado…
I am also adding one prime rule that will set the tone for the day
THE PRIME RULE IS…THE GOLDEN RULE!
TREAT THOSE IN LINE, THOSE PASSING BY AND THE OTHER SURROUNDING BUSINESSES(OUR NEIGHBORS) AS YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE TREATED WITH KINDNESS AND COMPASSION!! I KNOW IT’S A LONG WAIT BUT BE COOL!! THANKS!!!
