We open at 8AM Saturday, April 22nd, then close at 6PM and move to online sales the next morning per RSD guidelines.
RSD titles will be here, available for order for local pickup the day after the event, Sunday April 23rd at 8:00 AM.
Ordering for items to be shipped for non-locals will open at 6:30 PM on Sunday.
We are checking in RSD items all week and this page won't be 100% accurate until Thursday, April 20 in the evening (hopefully). As we check items, they will populate this page in real time.
Some titles may have been canceled or bumped.

We're so excited for RSD in 2023! It's a great list and we are going to do our best to make this a great experience for all of our wonderful customers! To find out more about this year's releases, here's a link to the COMPLETE RSD LIST!
This page is designed to answer the most commonly asked questions we get leading up to RSD, however if you have anything that's not answered here, please shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. These RSD events are dedicated to independent brick & mortar record stores and the products offered are designed to incentivize folks to go visit their local record store. You cannot pre-order or have RSD items placed on hold, as this violates the pledge we have signed with RSD, so please don't ask. - Doors will open at 8am EDT.
•We will allow 25 customers in at a time and then it will be a "one in, one out" situation
•Each person is allowed to buy one copy per RSD title
•We ask that you primarily shop the RSD items and anything else you can ask and we will grab for you. Again, we want to keep things moving so everyone has a chance to shop. Please be mindful of the other people waiting in line.
•The shop will close at 6:00PM on Saturday and all remaining stock will go online at approximately 8:00AM EDT Sunday morning for local pickup orders. If you need your order shipped you need to wait until 6:30 Sunday to order.
•We will re-open on Sunday from 12PM - 6PM
Remaining stock will be available for purchase at 8:00am EDT on Sunday, April 23rd. Please note that items will be live for purchase the next day as RSD events at 8:00am EDT for locals, shipping orders will be at 6:30 PM on Sunday.
A few very important notes regarding online orders:
•RSD items will be available only for local pickup on our site at 8 AM Sunday. This is to make sure that local customers that have supported us get a chance first since we understand some people do not want to come in the store. When you check out you must choose "Local PIckup" on the cart information page. If you don't it won't let you check out. If you do order this way and don't live in NC we will cancel your order.
•Each person is allowed to buy one copy per RSD title. If you try to buy multiple copies you will not be allowed to check out and will receive a message telling you which items violate the policy. This is in fairness to everyone to make sure as many people get their wants as possible.
•Items in your cart are NOT reserved for you. Our cart system works like MANY other online retailers, in that items are not reserved until the checkout process is completed. We realize this may be problematic for some folks, as some people are used to ticketing websites that have a hold feature enabled. We do not and will not have this capability, so please be warned of this BEFORE you order.
• "Add To Cart" buttons will appear on THIS PAGE first, and not on individual product pages.
• We DO NOT ship internationally. Many of the distributors we source product from have export restrictions and we would risk losing our accounts with them if we were to sell internationally. Sorry! Please do not order items, choose pickup and then try to get us to ship to you overseas. Your order will be canceled.
