Record Store Day Black Friday 2015

The rules (borrowing some of this from our friend Dave at Dave's Records):
We are opening at 10AM Friday and 10AM for Small Business Saturday.
If it isn't on the list we didn't get it. Don't call to ask if we have something, the phone will be off the hook for the first few hours so we can help the folks who braved the elements and waited in line. We'll post an updated list of what's left around 1pm.

Everything is first come first serve. The line will be served as quickly as possible. 

All items will be available at the counter. Wait in line and when your turn comes ask for everything you want. If you have a paper list or hand over your phone with a list on it that will speed things up! Pay for your RSD stuff and then check out the Used Vinyl New Arrivals, there's some great stuff in there!


It would be AWESOME if you brought your own reusable tote bag.

Go visit the other awesome stores in the city! They may have that thing you were looking for that we ran out of.

With the added bonus this year, of many REALLY good (we swear!) reissued Christmas albums! Even if you are the grinchiest of Christmas music haters… you will probably find something to enjoy here!

For that special record collector in your life— what better gift than record-care & cleaning supplies?! We’ve got record-cleaning kits, cloths, sprays and brushes! We have paper and plastic sleeves for LPs and 45s! We have LP mailers! 45 adapters! Stylus cleaning kits! Replacement styluses! It’s the little things, folks.
Our “in-house” record label, BLVD Records, puts out truly excellent records of all different genres. And just like here at Laurie’s Planet of Sound, BLVD Records has “something for everyone!” Here are a couple of the newest BLVD items available at the store — both of these LPs are not yet at ANY OTHER STORE IN THE WORLD! That’s right, you can ONLY get ‘em here!
The Den “Exhausted” LP is BLVD’s newest release, and you’ll love it if you like: Man Is The Bastard, Jesus Lizard, Melvins, metal, krautrock, prog, Flipper, Big Black, and/or KARP!

The Foreign Resort “Offshore” LP is their 2nd-to-last album, and we were lucky enough to nab the LAST remaining copies of it! “New Frontiers” is their most recent album, which BLVD will be putting to vinyl in 2015! But for now, pick up “Offshore,” which is just brilliant, and you’ll love it if you like: A Place To Bury Strangers, The Cure, My Bloody Valentine, Depeche Mode, Raveonettes, Jesus and Mary Chain, shoegaze, postpunk, new wave, and/or Swervedriver!

Also, don’t forget records from Staring Problem, New Canyons, Pink Frost, Fake Limbs, Astrobrite, North Highlands, and more! Ask your friendly sales clerk if you need any BLVDhelp!

You know by now that we’re Chicago #1 stop for strange, unusual, cult/underground films. Both new and used, and our stock fluctuates DAILY!! We just got this crazy Vincent Price box set, which will not last long!
COOL board games! We’re also the only non-Big-Box shop in Chicagoland to carry these limited-edition versions of Monopoly, Yahtzee, Operation, and more! These are HOT SELLERS every holiday season, so grab what appeals to you quickly! Also- BEATLES! As a small record store, we are obligated to carry a whole bunch of Beatles-related stuff. Beatles games! Beatles buttons! All the Beatles in Mono LP reissues! Beatles DVDs! BEATLES BEATLES BEATLES!
Well, obviously! And again, or stock fluctuates and changes daily— often, several times a day! Used AND new CDs/LPs are constantly going out, especially during the holiday season!

Still can’t figure out what to get for someone? We’ll happily write you out a Laurie’s gift certificate in the amount that you deem appropriate. They last forever— no expiration dates!

We’ll be open our normal hours, 11am-9pm! All of the Black Friday special releases will be located behind the counter. Sorry, no holds for anyone! We won’t be posting a list (just come on by!), but here’s a TINY sneak peek:

And we’ll be CLOSED on Thanksgiving Day! Have a great holiday! 

Our Black Friday disclaimer:
We’ve decided not to make a HUGE deal out of Black Friday this year. It’s a LOT of work for very little payoff, and these "extra" Record Store Day holidays tend to discourage our regular customers— who we want to be sure are always #1 here. Also, we believe that many of the special Black Friday releases are severely lacking in both quality and interest, especially considering their gouged-out prices. It’s hard for us to participate in an event that 1) seems like a cash-in for the music industry bigwigs, and 2) encourages record flippers to get at our stock before our true regular customers (especially during a holiday weekend in which, while we will be open and working, we would like to try and enjoy). 

So. That said, we WILL be getting Black Friday releases in, in limited quantities, and we will have them behind the counter when we open (at our regular 11am opening time) on 11/28. We won’t be posting a list of our stock or anything like that. So just come by! We’re hoping to just have a nice, calm, chill, post-Thanksgiving day. We WILL have our infamous CHRISTMAS SECTION together, and we’ll be thankful for all those who stop by!
