RECORD STORE DAY BLACK FRIDAY
Songbyrd and Record Store Day Present
Upstairs, All Ages
DOORS: 9:00 AM // SHOW:
[Black] Friday November 23, 2018
Since its inception, Black Friday has turned the day after Thanksgiving into the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season. Traditionally, Black Friday was about super-cheap prices, and for years was synonymous with being up super-early at chain and mall stores. In some places, that's what this is still about. But we really like the idea of a shopping season, especially when that shopping is, at its heart, a way to show the people you like that you like them. (And a way for them to show you. Gift-getting is awesome, too.)
RSD works year-round to shine a light on the independent businesses in your local community that sell you records and other things that make you happy, make you smile, make you sing, bring you comfort, bring people together. Everything you find at a record store would be a great gift for someone, so being part of that holiday shopping season, and the biggest shopping day of the year makes sense to us.
So RSD works with labels, artists, managers and distribution companies who feel the same, and put together a list of titles for that season that are available at participating record stores. They come out on Black Friday (11/23 this year) but may be available at record stores throughout the rest of the year, because record stores are the best place to go with a Holiday Wish List.
Stay tuned to our FB event page (see RSVP link) or email firstname.lastname@example.org for updates on titles we'll be carrying!
