It's here! Let's talk Record Store Day. This Saturday, April 22nd, Grimey's will celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Record Store Day with an all-day free concert, prizes, free stuff, food & bevs and over 400 exclusive RSD vinyl goodies! Record Store Day at Grimey's is RAIN or SHINE. The weather forecast does not look good for an outdoor event this Saturday but we will throw down regardless of what Mother Nature has in store! If it looks like our outdoor plans are rained out, we will have the bands play inside The Basement, on the same timeline. DJs will rock their sets between bands upstairs, inside Grimey's, with the sound pumped down into the Basement as well. Yes, that includes the mayor's scheduled set at 12:30pm. The RSD exclusives will be racked at Grimey's Too. You can still camp in the back lot of Grimey's Too (we'll have port-o-potties for you) and the line forms in that back lot, leading up the steps to the deck at Frothy Monkey. We'll still have all the free stuff and goodies to give away and everything will happen on a somewhat scaled-down level. Pray for sunshine and let's have a great day!

Don't forget to check out the list of RSD exclusive releases for the big day. Click here for the web page with thumbnail images. Click the images for descriptions of each release. There's also a handy pdf if you just want to scroll through the list. Remember, Record Store Day official releases are limited to one per customer. No holds or mail orders. Join us to get in on the fun. We will have commemorative t-shirts on sale in men's & women's styles and sizes with the wonderful, Earth Day-centric design by Matthew Sharer. #FarmToTurntable!

Grimey's is surrounded by city streets with legal street parking. If you are willing to walk several blocks, you should find something nearby with a little bit of effort. But in 2017 you can get around pretty easily without a car. We've partnered with Lyft to offer exclusive ride discounts for Record Store Day 2017!

New to Lyft?: Get $5 off your first 2 rides at or download the app and enter code GRIMEYS

Already Have Lyft?: Save 10% on two rides to or from Grimey's Record Store Day 2017 with code RSD17

<whew> Hope to see you this Saturday, April 22nd!

I'd like to clear up any confusion about our Fastball in-store. We announced the wrong date last week, confusing the months, so to set the record straight... Fastball will perform an acoustic set at Grimey's next week, on Tuesday, April 25th, at 6PM. I hope you can join us. No new events to announce this week as we focus on RSD17 but look next week for some more cool in-stores in the upcoming weeks.

Even with the onslaught of 400+ Record Store Day releases, there are still lots of new releases for Friday, led by new ones from Ray Davies, Robyn Hitchcock, The Black Angels, Sheryl Crow, Angaleena Presley, Charly Bliss, Coin, Matthew Logan Vasquez, Actress, Charlie Worsham, Brad Paisley, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, BoDeans, Texas and more, plus Big Star's Third Live, reissues of Tobin Sprout's '90s Matador output and vinyl from Andrew Combs, Jessi Colter, David Bowie, Tom Petty and tons more, all detailed on the new releases page.

Thanks for reading and for supporting your local record store. I hope to see you on Record Store Day!
