what are you getting at record store day? (and bay area participating stores)


Record Store Day at Amoeba last year

I’m just going to assume that you’re going to Record Store Day on Saturday because that’s what all the cool kids are doing. What are you going to get among all the exclusive releases?

Here are some of the things I’m going to keep my eye out for:

  • Andrew Bird / Loney Dear split 7″
  • Booker T Warped Sister 7″
  • Gaslight Anthem Live at Park Ave 10″ (maybe)
  • Guided By Voices Hold on Hope LP (maybe)
  • Lykke Li / El Perro del Mar split 7″
  • Magnolia Electric Co It’s Made Me Cry 7″ (this is the one I’m probably most excited about)
  • Modest Mouse Satellite Skin / Guilty Cockerspaniels 7″ (maybe)
  • Elvis Perkins Lorraine Lookout 7″

There’s also an Iron & Wine live disc that I’d consider getting but apparently they’re handing it out to all the people attending the Iron & Wine Swedish American dates in May.

There are a lot of Bay Area stores this year. We’ve come a long way since last year when I think only Amoeba and maybe a couple others participated locally. I remember going into Aquarius last year a few days before and asking “Are you guys participating in Record Store Day?” only to get the response “Oh, I didn’t know that existed.” They certainly do this year.

Here are the participating Bay Area stores for Record Store Day: (in San Francisco unless I note otherwise)
