March 22nd, 2017

It’s that special time of year again, the day is approaching…
when we forget our finances and splurge on rare vinyl that we can only get at a local indie record stores and most likely only on that one wonderful day.
And as always, there are NO HOLDS or RESERVES on any of these titles, so be smart, and maybe you’ll get lucky!

Here’s how to be smart for RSD:
1) look >> at the official list here on the Record Store Day website
2) (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) with your WISH LIST. She will at least make sure that we have them on order, if we can. We can’t possibly order everything, there are SO MANY (we are kinda sane sometimes, and don’t want to close)... so if you email us there’s a much much much much much much much much much much much much MUCH better chance that we might have it, ya?? YA! 😃
3) Wait patiently until RSD, and come on down to our store on Saturday morning - April 22nd!

First time coming to our store for RSD? WELL THEN! First off, welcome to our proud establishment of vinyl love.
There’s usually a line up outside before we open… down the street. We usually have sweet awesome giveaways for the first x amount of people in the line that are probably very tired.
When the door opens, you are given a number. That’s right, it’s NOT a stomping, pushing, crazed papa free for all… when your number is called, you can choose from what we have - limit of 1 of each title, per person max. That means you can shop all calm, check out our 2 (maybe soon to be 3!??? *GASP*) floors of vinyl until you’re called. If you’re not in the store when your number gets called, you will lose your place in line.
After that, take your time and shop some more if you feel like it. Maybe you feel like running away like you won the lottery?? That’s ok too! None of my business 😃 .
If you don’t find what you’re after, let us know what it was if you don’t find it elsewhere, sometimes there are leftovers that we can still order in.

Woot! Have fun shopping everyone! Hope all your vinyl dreams come true
♥ Dr. Disc
