Record Store Day: Black Friday Is Today!

Hey all -

Please remember that we will have shopping by reservation only today until 12 Noon, at which time we will open for regular limited-capacity shopping. At Noon, whatever RSD items from this Black Friday are still in-stock will be out on the floor for you to purchase. RSD items will, as always, be only one copy of any item per customer, but starting at noon today you can buy as many different items as you wish (as long as it’s only one copy). Remaining RSD items will go live to our website overnight on Friday and be available for online purchase starting early Saturday. In-store and our website will be the only way to purchase these items for the weekend – we will not place RSD titles on hold or do phone/mail orders for items on the weekend. Starting Monday the 30th, all restrictions are lifted on RSD titles – you may buy them any way we sell them and in any quantity..

As always when we enter the holiday season, some days will have adjusted hours. Here they are:

Thursday November 26th: closed for Thanksgiving
Friday November 27th (Black Friday): open for regular shopping at 12 Noon (reservations are full for early shopping – thank you to those who entered!)
Thursday December 24th: 10AM – 6PM
Friday December 25th: closed for Christmas
Thursday December 31st: 10AM – 6PM
Friday January 1st 2021: 12 Noon – 6PM

Please note that our Holiday music sections are up and running on all formats. CDs, DVDs, and Blu-rays are in the main room, just outside the video room, while holiday LPs are located where they live year-round, in the third-to-last row of the main room, right after our CD sections end. Check this pic!

During this busy holiday season, please take note of our in-store rules around Covid prevention. We have limited-capacity shopping, which means that when we hit capacity, people will need to wait outside until someone has left to make space for them. As the weather turns colder, we’re looking at ways to make this easier on those who have to wait, but we will be holding to this policy until the pandemic has completely passed. As per the state mandate, masks covering your mouth and nose are necessary at all times in the store. We are not allowing in outside bags, food or drink. They can be checked with our door person upon entry and will be safely watched over the entire time you are shopping. To reduce the possibility of surface transmissions, our bathrooms are closed. We’re sorry about the inconvenience, but it is in the interests of everyone’s safety and health. Similarly, our listening stations are also closed. Any changes we make to these rules will be noted here.

And now for new stuff. There’s a link below to a bunch of this week’s releases, but I wanted to mention a few special things. First off, some good news - we are one of a handful of lucky stores around the country who have received autographed copies of Megan Thee Stallion’s CD Good News! You know her from her hit “Savage” and her guest spot on Cardi B’s smash hit “WAP,” so this album will be one to look forward to. You can order them over the phone, purchase in-store, or order off our site HERE. We’ve also got a few other things I just want to note a few things out Friday that aren’t RSD releases that might otherwise slip under the radar – Bombino’s Live in Amsterdam CD is gonna be around for those who can’t get their hands on the RSD vinyl version; highly-regarded metal band Nails is reissuing their debut Unsilent Death on CD and LP; and New West Records has made LP reissues of a pair of Dwight Yoakam classics. And over in DVD and Blu-ray, don’t miss the Criterion release of Martin Scorsese’s elegiac, masterful film The Irishman, out this week.

Also wanted to give a heads-up that Twist & Shout is participating in a Give the Gift of Music sale starting this weekend and running through early January. Throughout the store, we will have endcaps featuring sale items on LP and CD, including releases from artists like Elvis Costello, Fiona Apple, Bob Dylan, Nathaniel Rateliff, Phoebe Bridgers, Clipping, Bright Eyes and many many more! Keep your eyes peeled for some great deals.

Hope you’re all doing well and staying safe and healthy!
