The scoop from Harvest Records.
RECORD STORE DAY 2012
THIS SATURDAY, April 21st @ Harvest Records
We will be open from 10am to 9pm.
featuring a FREE in-store performance at 3pm from
HISS GOLDEN MESSENGER!!
OK SO… WHAT EXACTLY IS RECORD STORE DAY?
For five years running, this new “holiday” has grown expontentially and is centered around the celebration of independent record stores all across the world. Places you go to learn about new music, or to relax, or to be inspired, or to converse, or to just listen…
This celebration manifests itself, first and foremost, in the form of hundreds of very limited releases available ONLY to independent record stores across the world. That means no Best Buy, no Wal Mart, no Amazon. Only stores like Harvest. We have spent the better part of 2 months ordering as many copies of as many of these releases as we deem necessary.
HOWEVER — R.S.D. is not only for those obsessed with securing certain records! It’s for everyone! There will be plenty of insanely amazing releases to comb thru all day and all night, of course. In addition to the R.S.D.-specific releases, we will have a super-freshly-stocked store from top to bottom. Tons of killer used stuff, new stuff, new reissues, Bonnie Billy condoms… you know… the Hiss Golden Messenger performance…the whole shebang.
AND ON TOP OF THAT: The EATBOX food truck will be here starting at 9am!! (an hour before doors for those of you who might be camping out…they will be in the back parking lot FYI…)
AND ON TOP OF THAT: we will be giving away free stuff, and raffle prizes, and maybe we’ll have snacks or something. It’ll be awesome.
COME SEE US!!!

We can not accept preorders for any RSD items, sorry! All items are first-come, first-served.
If there are particular items you are obsessing over getting, we recommend getting in line relatively early, certainly before doors open at 10am.
