So how do I get my hands on my favorite RSD release?

Well, there will be a line.  Below is a general explanation of how the day will work.

Pure Pop opens at 10am on Saturday the 22nd. We will be collecting wish lists at 9am sharp – make sure to get yours in by then! If there are only a couple of releases you really want, we DO NOT recommend trying to be the first in line – it won’t make a difference if you fill out a wish list. As long as you’re here no later than 8:55am with your wishlist, you have just as much a chance as anyone else to get the one or two releases that you want. If you want 7 things really, really badly, then we suggest getting to Pure Pop early so you can be the first in line to get in. There is usually already a small line around 6:00am or so. Besides the two items on your wishlist, everything else is first come, first serve. WE DO NOT DO PRE-ORDERS OR HOLDS PRIOR TO RSD titles. This is just general nationwide RSD policy.

So, what’s a wish list? In order for us to try to get you the release you want, we have a “wish list” – you fill out up to 8 releases that you want in order of how much you want them (1 being: you’d kill to get it, 8 being: you wouldn’t be torn up if you missed it). We collect the wish lists at 9am sharp and shuffle them. Starting from the random wish list on the top of the pile, we pick out the top 2 items you wrote down that are available and hold it for you, so you’re guaranteed to get at least something on your list. BUT we cannot guarantee everyone will get their #1 and #2 choices. We have a very limited supply of RSD/Black Friday releases! As we go through the lists and things sell out, we move on to the #3, #4, #5 choices and so on.

Here’s an example of how the wish list works: Say we get 10 copies of the Grateful Dead vinyl. Johnny’s wish list is 20th in the pile of randomly shuffled lists and the Grateful Dead vinyl is at the top of his list. Before we get to Johnny’s list however, ten other people had the Grateful Dead on their top 2 and we put them aside for those lucky people, so we are now sold out of the Grateful Dead. Sorry Johnny, but we’ll have to move on to your number 2 and 3 on the list instead. Even though Johnny didn’t get his number 1 pick, at least he got his 2nd and 3rd! and since it was really up to pure chance, he’s not too bummed and didn’t waste time by lining up outside the store at 3am.

Pure Pop tries to get as many titles as possible, but we cannot guarantee any title will be here until it arrives. Keep an eye on our website to see what we’ll have on Record Store Day – we will be updating our own store list daily as titles come in via UPS/FedEx. Have any more questions? Give us a call at 802-658-2652.

See you on April 22 at 9am!!!
