BLACK FRIDAY!
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!

LAURIE'S + NUMERO: A COOL THING!
Laurie's owner & mastermind John unearthed an interesting-looking reel-to-reel tape last year, at a garage sale of all places! After a little detective work and social media q&a, we learned that SOLARIS was a little-known Chicago hard-psych/jazz/noise band around in the early 70s. John turned the tape over to our friends at Numero Group, who have just given this unusual and rare tape recording a proper and SUPER limited release! Since we’re the only store in the world to receive a few copies, come by and nab one REAL SOON! We have a VERY limited amount for sale, and this is a web-only release limited to 500 copies! More info on the Numero site HERE!
