#RSDBF Black Friday

It's that time again, Record Store Day Black Friday!

On Nov 29, 2019 we once again we take a day to celebrate independent record stores and our favorite physical music format! Plus food, live music, sales, giveaways, and as always the exclusive, super limited-edition releases- see the list here!

Get free coffee from The Poughkeepsie Grind in the morning. There will be food. Meet the folks from Dutchess County SPCA- they'll be here with info on animals up for adoption. We'll have live music in the afternoon including Xen Model (electronic from Hudson, NY),

And don't miss Small Business Saturday the next day (details coming shortly!)

Not sure what Record Store Day is? Here's info straight from #RSDBF: "We work year-round to shine a light on the independent businesses in your local community that sell you records and other things that make you happy, make you smile, make you sing, bring you comfort, bring people together. And all those things you find at a record store make great gifts so being part of that holiday shopping season, and the biggest shopping day of the year makes sense to us. So we work with labels, artists, managers and distribution companies who feel the same, and put together a list of titles for that season that are available at participating record stores. They come out on Black Friday (11/24) but may be available at record stores throughout the rest of the year, because record stores are the best place to go when you're filling out or filling in a Holiday Wish List. Record stores sell nothing but great gifts.." Read the whole thing: http://recordstoreday.com/NewsItem/7145

As usual, here's our disclaimers:

> We will let you know as we find out about scheduled releases - but this does not mean that information about these releases will not change or that a few releases will not get cancelled. We will do our best to give you the most accurate information available to us.

> Most releases will be extremely limited and will be available on a first come, first serve basis. NO HOLDS.

> As a recordstoreday.com rule, all titles are limited to one per customer upon their release. No web orders. No exceptions.

> Doors open 9AM sharp. You are encouraged to get here as early as you feel comfortable. In previous years folks have camped out- there will be port-a-pottys, but please dress warm, BYO tent and be safe!

> There will be a seperate line for #RSDBF purchases and regular in-store purchases so you don't have to wait if you aren't there for the exclusives!

> Saturday at 10am we will post a list of all titles still available and we will be happy to hold and ship. Please call for more info!

We'll be open 9am - 9pm! Make your plans now to spend some quality time with us this holiday season! Hope to see you then!
