Got this from my friends at Record Store Day today:
This Friday, of course, is Black Friday, and word is out that your local indie record store may just be the place to be this Post-Thanksgiving-Shopping-Melee-Day. And that’s because indie stores across the country will be the place to get special releases created just for you, for giving and getting this holiday season, and they’re scheduled for release on Black Friday.
Now, this is not Record Store Day, Jr. or RSD 2 or Son of the Return of Record Store Day. This is just a group of special releases that you can only find at record stores. Some of them are uber-limited, some of them are available at record stores before they’re available anywhere else. But they’re all special, and they kind of fly in the face of what Black Friday has become, which is “I have to shop, let’s see how fast and cheap I can get it over with”. The magic of these pieces is that every one of them is something someone will really LOVE to get, and you’ll really ENJOY giving. And you’ll have the extra nice feeling of supporting a local independently owned business during the holidays. So check out the list of titles LOCATED HERE, and keep in mind that not all stores on this page will carry everything, so start a conversation with your local store. Or print this out as a WISH LIST and hide it where your gift-giving loved ones are sure to find it.
On top of that, you should know that RECORD STORE DAY 2010 t-shirts and POSTERS of course make great gifts as well, and in the spirit of holiday shopping, they are now at their lowest price ever: $10. Get ‘em while they last, RIGHT HERE.
And finally, a little something we’re thankful for: YOU. We couldn’t do what we do, which is shine a light on the glory that is the record store, if you weren’t out there supporting them. So thanks. And keep up the good work.
So many special Black Friday releases to get you our to your favourite independent music store on Friday. Get out there and find that special release for yourself or your favourite music fan. With the holidays just around the corner you might just find something amazing.
