RSD - Guide,Tips and Titles

BLACK FRIDAY 2018

Friday 23rd November

*Black Friday is the perfect excuse to celebrate both the releases themselves and the unique indie record stores who carry them. Cheap, mass produced frenzy is definately not the goal. Not all UK Record shops participate in this event BUT WE DO.

Q: When is  Black Friday?
A: Always the day after Thanksgiving, this year Black Friday takes place on Friday, November 23rd.

Q: What will be available on the day?
A: All titles are extremely limited as this is a U.S.A. event, small amounts make it to the UK,Europe and beyond.

Q: How will i know what will arrive?
A: We will list all incoming titles on our Website RSD page.

Q: How much will they cost?
A: Prices will be displayed next to titles , so check ahead of the day.

Q: What time does VOD Music Record shop open on Black Friday?
A: We will be open at 7.30am to facilitate people on their way to work or returning from night shift.

Q: How many can i purchase?
A: As titles are even more limited than RSD and fewer releases it will be 1 of each title up to a maximum of 5 titles.But it is OK to rejoin any queue if you need more than 5.

Q: Can i Pre order? A: No items can be reserved, purely on a first come first served basis.

Note, whilst this is not RSD, with Black Friday titles so limited if you are desperate to pick up something of the list it is a good idea to get to the shop ahead of opening time

Once priced take that as confirmation they will be at our shop on Black Friday but most likely just ONE of each with the odd exception due to very limited UK numbers of each title....

Q. What is Record Store Day (RSD)
A. It is the one day of the year when over 200 independent record shops all across the UK come together to celebrate their unique culture. Special vinyl releases are made exclusively for the day
and many shops host events to mark the occasion. Thousands more shops celebrate the day around the globe in what’s become one of the biggest annual events on the music calendar

TIMELINE FOR THE DAY BELOW.

Tips:
If there is a title(s) you are desperate to pick up on the day we recommend you
get to the shop early to get as near to the front of the queue as possible.

There will be a exclusive FREEBIES for the first few customers (Plus Snacks and Gifts).

Remember that all RSD titles are extremely limited and although we will do our very best to get multiples of any we have in for the day it is not always possible due to incredible demand from Record Stores across the Globe.

We will list anything that is arriving for the day on our RSD page, so be sure to check this before joining the queue.

Confirmations are listed in the run up to RSD with a price list viewable the night before the day. We always aim to sell as cheap as we  possibly can. A physical price list will be also available on the day and its generally handed down the queue to browse before getting to the counter. Those with Smart Phones or Tablets can check our Website RSD page online.

Wear suitable clothing if joining the queue early as it can be abit nippy in April and open to the elements. Should it rain,  we can put our Shop canopy up if required and there is some cover under nearby shop overhang which very handily is where the queue lines up....hopefully though this wont be necessary.
