Record Store Day "DROPS" 2020
Aug 29th - Sept 26th - Oct 24th
It's the 2020 Edition of RECORD STORE DAY at Indy CD & Vinyl!
Earlier this spring, Record Store Day announced a rescheduled June 20th date for the annual #RSD20 holiday, but with ongoing health and safety concerns, RSD came up with a new way to celebrate in 2020. Instead of a single-day global celebration, the 2020 releases will now be available over a series of monthly RSD Drops events August-October, followed by a regularly-scheduled Black Friday in November. This means we'll have four months of release events – the RSD 2020 exclusives spread out over three months, followed by a new round of exclusives for Black Friday – to end this crazy year on a high note.
HERE IS WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU AT INDY CD & VINYL:
- We will be open from 8am-4pm on Saturday, Sept 26th. RSD titles will be sold via our back door.
GO TO OUR BACK DOOR FOR RSD STUFF!
- The List from April is broken up in thirds, and the new version of the second part of The List is available for download on the store website - so print it out and check off the titles on your RSD 2020 wishlist!
- You cannot pre-order or have RSD items placed on hold, as this violates the pledge we have signed with RSD, so please don't ask. Your BEST CHANCE to get the limited records is to arrive early in person. Bring the list to our back door on an RSD Drops date and we will fill your order!
- When you arrive, you will be greeted at our back entrance by a member of our crew, who will show you where to queue until it's time to get your RSD items. If you line up earlier than our staff arrives, our waiting area through the back lot and on the sidewalk will be clearly marked with socially-distanced spots for customers to stand 6 feet apart. Masks, hand sanitizer (provided) and all other pandemic shopping policies will be in place. Anyone who violates our policies will be subject to removal.
- The registers will be outside the shop so if this is a rare venture outside your home during the pandemic be sure we will do everything to keep you safe, distanced, and not force you to enter the shop.
- We will fill as much of your list as we can with the product we have! We will continue to update those in line with items that have sold out. Again, you cannot pre-order or have RSD items placed on hold, as this violates the pledge we have signed with RSD, so please don't ask. Please do not call the shop as we will not be selling the records until later in the day or when the line is done.
- We will begin to take phone orders officially at 1pm EST, as well as selling the items online at our branded eBay store:
- Priority is given to those in line, at the shop. These RSD Drops are days dedicated to independent brick & mortar record stores and the products offered are designed to incentivize folks to go visit their local record store.
- Not done shopping? Come on around to the front door and shop the regular in-stock items like 'normal,' albeit only 10 customers in the shop at a time, wearing masks and gloves. We will be open until 2pm EST so come shop and support local!
