Music-lovers unite: It's almost Record Store Day 2014
If you’re all about the vinyl, baby, you better head to Love Garden on Record Store Day 2014 starting at 10 a.m. Saturday.
Our local record store is already posting the records they have in stock for the big day on their Facebook page, so make sure to check in (constantly) to see if they’ve got what you need. In addition, Love Garden is keeping everyone on the email list in the know about exclusive releases that are going to be released just for this day. You can also check them out here.
Another sweet deal: if you spend $50 or more you'll get a credit slip for 10 percent of your ticket subtotal (before tax) for use on future visits. For example: If you spend $85 (plus tax), you'll get a credit slip of $8.50 for your next visit.
This will not be a Black Friday trample-all-over-each-other experience. (Bullies stand down). According to the event page, they will be handing out numbers to people just before opening at 10 a.m. The first person in line gets the first number, and so on. Each individual will get to grab five items (only one copy of any individual item) to purchase from the exclusives table. They will go through all the numbers until everyone who was in line before 10 a.m. gets their turn at the exclusives table. They will lift the five-items-per-person limit after everyone with a number has had their turn.
Get in the spirit. Get on the email list. Get yourself up early on Saturday. And support your local indie record store, you guys.
