RSD 2021

When: Saturday, June 12th from 9am-7pm
and Saturday, July 17th from 9am-7pm

Record Store Day returns in 2021 on Saturday, June 12th and Saturday, July 17th! 

Our RSD titles will be set up in our driveway. A line will begin whenever someone starts it and will go down towards the barbershop.

Masks are required to be in line, covering your nose and mouth. Social distancing of 6 feet in line will also be expected. We will provide gloves at the table before flipping through the RSD releases, just like we provide in the shop. 

This is the safest way we feel we can pull off these events and while we’re taking a conservative approach to safety, we prefer to err on the side of caution vs. the other way around.  We hope you can appreciate that.
There is a limit of 1 copy per title. The store itself will be open for shopping with our usual max capacity limits.
We’ll have DJs spinning throughout the day to be announced closer to the day-of. We hope you can make it out to celebrate and support Vinyl Junkies on Record Store Day!
