Just a quick note regarding the Black Friday Record Store Day event - Here at The Row, as you may already know, we choose not to participate in the Black Friday event. While we certainly appreciate RSD and all of the new faces and old friends the event brings to our shop in April, we feel that this additional Black Friday event is gilding the lily, or the turkey, or something. There is a thing that is perfectly fine on its own and now gold paint has been applied...ugh. You know what I'm saying.
We will be open on Friday, November 28th at our regular shop hours of
10am-5:30pm. Also, as always with Friday comes a FB Friday Track that
will get you 15% off your Desolation Row purchase for the day (so keep
your eye on this page). Most likely we will have a few of the RSD
exclusives in stock in the weeks following Black Friday. RSD exclusives
are often not quite as exclusive as they are made out to be, so I'm sure
we will see a few items trickle in just like we do after the big April
In conclusion, Desolation Row will be open on Friday and
we will have a full stock of great vinyl (just none of those RSD
exclusives). So after you stop by Sound Cat or The Attic or Mind Cure or
Eides or even Jerry's (all of whom are friends and we wish them a very
successful day) we hope to see you,too, if only to say Happy
Thanksgiving and thank you for 10 years of selling great records to
great people here at Desolation Row.
Have a very happy and safe holiday with family and friends and, naturally, with some truly great music!
