Record Store Day is Saturday, April 23rd. Both shops open at 8 a.m. (Any remaining RSD titles will be available in our online shop starting sometime on Sunday, April 24th.)
SCROLL DOWN TO SEE WHAT TITLES WE’LL HAVE IN STOCK FOR RSD! Some RSD titles have been postponed to June 18th due to manufacturing delays. The list of delayed titles can be found at the end of the official RSD list right here.
No holds or pre-sales on Record Store Day titles. All RSD titles are first come, first served. Customers may only purchase 1 copy per RSD title.
Oxford folks, Record Store Day is on the same day as the Double Decker Arts Fest in Oxford, so plan accordingly. Here’s some parking and shuttle info (for more info go here):
The official list for RSD is out now. We will not be stocking everything on the list but we’ll try our best to cover the good stuff.
Our pals, Grapefruit, from Water Valley, MS, will be popping up under the stairs for the day slinging their hand-dyed clothes and accessories. Keep your eyes peeled for a limited, Record Store Day collaboration we’re doing with them…
The first group of folks in line will be getting FREE tote bags stuffed with RSD goodies, as well as free Dogfish Head RSD posters. We’ll have some cool EoAM swag as well.
Jackson folks, here’s the poster / event info for our Fondren shop (more info here):
The Fondren shop will open at 8am with complimentary coffee from @thebeanjxn and tons of RSD titles, 5 for $1 cheap thrills, giveaways (including tickets to @ardenland events) and more! Stay tuned, we will be posting the giveaway items leading up to RSD.
At 4pm on RSD we’re opening up the new back patio with live music! Big day planned! And, of course, beer will be sold all day long to help support the bands!
The 2022 RSD Ambassador is Taylor Swift!
A note on the Taylor Swift RSD release:
Ok Swifties, we only got 4 copies of Taylor’s RSD release at the Oxford shop and 4 copies at the Fondren shop. This is a highly sought-after release and there’s just not enough copies for everyone. So to keep it fair, we’ve decided we’re going to give our copies away!!
We’ll host drawings for two copies and then we’re going to hide the other two copies in the shops on Record Store Day (4/23). You can swing by either location to drop your name in the bucket for the drawing and you can poke around the shop to see if you find one of the hidden ones.
To sweeten the pot, we’ll also pick an additional winner for an autographed Taylor Swift CD.
You must come by either shop to enter the drawing in person. No purchase necessary but if you want to buy some records while you’re here that’d be mighty sweet of you. If you find one of the hidden copies then it’s all yours FOR FREE.
We’ll draw the winners for the other 2 copies at 5 p.m. on Record Store Day.
You do not have to be present for the drawing to win, but it’d be really cool if you were.
So, to be clear, you do not have to wait in line for this release.
