THE RULES FOR RSD2019 AT DAVE’S RECORDS

          All the ordering is done and we are shifting into high gear to put RSD2019 into place. Record Store Day is the day we all celebrate what drives us as music lovers – the love of VINYL. It is the day we get excited and shout our love to the physical spaces that help us build our physical collections. SO LET’S BEGIN WITH…

 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!!!

SATURDAY APRIL 13, 2019 IS RECORD STORE DAY

IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO SHARE IT WITH US…

HERE ARE THE RULES OF THE ROAD AT DAVE’S RECORDS FOR RECORD STORE DAY 2019

1) EVERYTHING IS FIRST COME FIRST SERVE. THE LINE WILL BE SERVED AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.

2) DAVE’S RECORDS OPENS AT 9AM. DOORS WILL OPEN WHEN WE ARE SET TO GO. YOU’LL KNOW IT’S CLOSE WHEN THE CUPCAKES COME OUT. THE LINE WILL BE LED IN AS IT WAS CREATED AND IT WILL BE SERVED IN THAT ORDER. YOU KNOW THE DRILL.

3) ITEMS WE ACTUALLY HAVE WILL BE POSTED FRIDAY, APRIL 12 BY 5PM SO YOU WILL KNOW IF IT IS WORTH YOUR WHILE TO WAIT IN LINE.

4) ALL ITEMS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE COUNTER SO WAIT IN LINE AND WHEN YOUR TURN COMES ASK FOR EVERYTHING YOU WANT. PAY FOR YOUR RECORD STORE DAY STUFF AND THEN YOU MAY EITHER CONTINUE TO SHOP (WE DO HAVE PLENTY OF OTHER STUFF) OR YOU MAY MOVE ON TO THE NEXT STORE. HIT AS MANY AS YOU CAN.

5) EVERYONE MAY PURCHASE UP TO 1 OF EACH ITEM UNTIL 1PM. AFTER 1PM, YOU MAY PURCHASE ITEMS IN QUANTITY. THIS WAY EVERYTHING WILL BE DISTIBUTED TO AS MANY PEOPLE IN AS FAIR A WAY AS POSSIBLE.

6) BE PATIENT. NOT EVERYONE IS LOOKING FOR THE SAME ITEMS THAT YOU ARE. SO DON’T PANIC. EVERY YEAR I AM MIGHTILY IMPRESSED BY THE SPIRIT AND GOOD WILL OF THE RECORD SHOPPING COMMUNITY. I’M SURE I WILL BE FOR RSD 2019.

7) AGAIN…PATIENCE WILL BE REWARDED. WE HAVE A VARIETY OF FREE BONUS GOODIES
 TO DISTRIBUTE. OF THE GIVEAWAY ITEMS AS WELL AS AN ASSORTMENT OF BAGS/7″ SINGLES/LP’S/CD/DVD/DOWNLOAD CARDS/STICKERS, ETC. IT IS PILING UP AS WE SPEAK. THOSE NOT BEING PATIENT WILL STAND OUT WHEN IT COMES TIME TO HAND OUT.

8) FREE CANDY FOR EVERYONE EVEN THE NON RECORD SHOPPER AND THE IMPATIENT.

9) FREE CUPCAKES (COURTESY OF MOLLY’S CUPCAKES) UNTIL SUPPLIES RUN OUT

10) ALL SALES INFO OR FREE ITEM INFO MUST HAVE BEEN POSTED ON THIS BLOG. IF YOU SAY I SAW IT ON ANOTHER WEBSITE/BLOG/NEWSPAPER ARTICLE IT IS NOT VALID.

10+) THE RECORD STORE EXPERIENCE CAN’T BE DUPLICATED ONLINE SO IT PRETTY MUCH RULES EVERY DAY- IF YOU LIKE THAT KINDA THING. YOU KNOW WHERE DAVE’S RECORDS STANDS ON THAT.

10++) KEEP IN MIND THAT DAVE WILL BE SPENDING HIS 60TH BIRTHDAY GETTING RSD2019 READY FOR YOU. LET’S ALL TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND BLOW OUT THE CANDLES FOR DAVE’S WISH-A SMOOTH RECORD STORE DAY FILLED WITH MUSIC AND DANCING!!

LET’S GET THE PARTY STARTED!!

10++++++) HAVE A BALL ON RECORD STORE DAY!

More info will be added as we press ahead toward RSD 2019.

If you want to know if we have an item see Rule #3, we have ordered them all but DAVE’S RECORDS FINAL RSD2019 LIST will not be FINALIZED until Friday(APRIL 12)before RSD2019(Saturday, April 12). Phone calls, e-mails, tweets, or any other form of communication up to and including Morse Code/Semmaphore/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 onRSD2019 to ask if we still have an item…THE PHONE WILL BE OFF THE HOOK until roughly 1PM 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 PHYSICAL MUSIC. COME GET PHYSICAL WITH US!

FURTHER INFO WILL BE POSTED ON THE BLOG AS NECESSARY BUT FOLLOW FACEBOOK AND @DAVESRECORDSCHI ON TWITTER or INSTAGRAM AS WELL.

About davesrecords

The sign on the door says it all- NO CD’s!! Never had ‘em!! Never Will!! Dave’s is totally devoted to vinyl. We carry all speeds (33,45,even 78) all formats (7”, 10”, 12” single, EP , LP) all styles (rock, jazz, soul, funk, hip hop, house, disco, reggae, blues, folk, country, vocal, soundtracks, showtunes, classical, indie/alternative and every sub-genre you can imagine). If it’s on vinyl, it’s here now or it’s passed through our doors and in to someone’s crate. On any given day, there are at least 40,000 titles to choose from. Every day new titles freshen the racks. We sell both new and used. You’ll find both import and domestic new vinyl. You’ll find a wide assortment of new reissued vinyl. You’ll find out of print used vinyl that you’d thought was long gone. No matter what it is, you’re likely to find it in our bins. If you come to Chicago, check us out. If you can’t, e-mail us and we’ll try to hook you up. Not everyone has a great vinyl store within reach.
