…..news letter #563 – turn it up to 11…..

howdy all….

so in the u.s. they have this thing called black friday, and there’s this thing called record store day. now usually people line up and beat each other up to buy a super cheap tv or ipod or something at walmart and the such. so the people behind record store day, or maybe some greedy under the guise of well meaning label execs, decided that if there was a black friday record store day, they could drive some of that black friday consumerism back into the small independent record shops… not a terrible idea, i suppose.

the last few haven’t really had anything overly exciting, but this year, there are some pretty cool releases, so we’ve got some of that stuff coming in… in theory. now, of course, being a friday event, it would appear that most of the goodies technically won’t be showing up until sometime tomorrow anyway… however there are some things here already, and even more tomorrow, but i’ll get into the goodies later. what is funny/convenient, is that this black friday record store day happens to co-inside with the same weekend that we generally celebrate the anniversary of our little shop so what a perfect time to thank all you fine record buyers out there for your support over the last year and make your xmas gift shopping a little less expensive. so we bring you our 11th annual anniversary sale! come on down this weekend (fri-sun) and save 20% off pretty much everything in the store.
