Record Store Day 2014

I spent most of this day celebrating Record Store Day.  First I went toLou’s Records in Encinitas.  They are quite organized for the event. Folks usually start forming a line around 7:30am and at 9am Lou himself comes out and hands out numbers.  I arrived right at 9am and was #72.  Then when the store opens at 10am the staff start calling up customers in order and each person gets to pick up to 5 RSD releases.

By the time my turn came a few of my picks were gone but I still got some great records:

  • Jimmy Page & the Black CrowesLive at the Greek
  • Of MontrealSatanic Panic in the Attic
  • Man ManThe Man in a Blue Turban with a Face
  • Tame ImpalaLive Versions
  • Garbage & Brody DalleGirls Talk 

Next stop was Spin Records in Carlsbad since I wasn’t going to wait all the way through the line again to get more records.  Plus, it isn’t really Record Store Day unless you go to at least two stores!!

I got some great records there as well:

  • Frightened RabbitLive From Criminal Records
  • Grant HartEvery Everything
  • Built to SpillUltimate Alternative Wavers
  • Tears for FearsReady Boy & Girls?
  • Opeth – Watershed

Then it was time to head back down to Lou’s to see what else might still be available.  I was surprised to find both the Pixies and Flaming Lips records and this Shocking Blue 7″ was a real bonus.

  • Shocking BlueSend Me a Postcard
  • Flaming Lips7 Skies H3
  • KatatoniaKocytean
  • PixiesIndie CIndy

Now comes the fun part – listening!
