Thanks for checking out our shop to celebrate Record Store Day 2022 on 4/23! We are super excited about this years titles, and to be hosting our first Record Store Day!
Our Plan for RSD 2022
Our plan was designed to try and make RSD as fair and fun as we can for everyone.
This is our first RSD as a store and many of our customer's first RSD, period.
We are keeping these customers, who might not know exactly how everything works, in mind with our plan.
Celebrating the Day
We will be open for business as usual our normal hours from 11AM - 7PM.
We will have: live music, RSD swag, gift card giveaways, huge discounts on select records, RSD exclusives from local artists you won't find anywhere esle, and we have a few other irons in the fire as well to announce as we get closer to the date.
There are a few spots left for our 10:30 timeslot! See below for more details!
No timeslot? No problem. While we can't guarantee availability on any particular records, we ordered A LOT of records so you'll be able to shop RSD titles and take part in all of our deals and giveaways all day long. We are planning a really fun day for anyone into vinyl and music!
For RSD 2022 we will be welcoming back our friends Natalie Fideler and Brandon from birdhole as well as hosting Rhino Shrine and Sarah Kayfes for the first time!

Purchase Limits - Finalized - PLEASE READ THIS
THERE IS A STRICT PURCHASE LIMIT OF 1 of EACH RSD TITLE PER TIMESLOT PURCHASE
You can buy as many DIFFERENT titles as you would like (with few exceptions explained below), but may only purchase 1 copy of each.
There are 10 titles (listed below) that we got heavily allocated on and we will be restricting purchases on. Which means that we received significantly less than our ordered quantity distributors. I did the math. It took a long time. We have 125 titles coming in, so these represent a very small portion of our RSD selection.
This is NOT due to us being a new or small store as far as I can tell. The allocations were extremely fair and the numbers add up in terms of RSD stores, print runs, and demand.
These titles will have pink stickers and each customer/timeslot may only purchase 1 pink stickered record each at checkout. This does not limit purchasing of any RSD titles without a pink sticker.
Without further ado here are the pink sticker titles:
Swift, Taylor - the lakes
KITTIE - SPIT
OPETH - MY ARMS, YOUR HEARSE
ASTLEY, RICK - WHENEVER YOU NEED SOMEBODY
BAREILLIES, SARA - LITTLE VOICE
DEVO - OH, NO! IT'S DEVO
Grateful Dead - Wembley Empire Pool, London, England, 4/8/72 (RSD22 EX)
JONES DURAND/INDICATIONS - POWER TO THE PEOPLE
PEPPA PIG - PEPPA'S ADVENTURES: THE ALBUM
Bell Biv Devoe - Poison
So everyone knows my thought process on this, we have many people ask us "what is record store day?", which given how many new people have joined our ranks in the last year is no suprise. If you are signed up for a timeslot, this most likely isn't your first rodeo. For everyone else, they might not understand just how limited some RSD titles are. We set up the timeslot system to enable the more experienced collectors to get what they are really looking for and opening up the rest of the day for our newer friends to find some cool stuff on their first RSD.
I (Kris) sincerely hope this doesn't dampen anyone's plans. If you have a timeslot and would like to cancel as a result please contact me!
If anyone has any questions or feedback reach out to me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Taylor Swift Policy
If you have not heard, this is going to be a very limited title. I have talked with my staff, customers, and looked at what other record store have done to decide on this. We are going to be going FIRST COME FIRST SERVE on all but 1 copy of this. We did the reservations as a way to avoid to dreaded RSD line and to make South Metro Music a destination on Record Store Day and if it goes well, make it a thing in the future. While we like to appeal to casual collectors as well, we would like an RSD reservation to mean something at our store.
That being said, we would like to provide a last chance opportunity for anyone who can't get their hands on this title and are going to do so in the form of a charity raffle, for $2 per entry. 100% of the proceeds will be going to 360 Communities, a food shelf in Burnsville. We will hold the drawing after we close at 7pm on RSD and let you know right away!
In summary, only ONE copy is being raffled away, with the rest being first come first serve.
The following titles have been bumped to 6/18, if you had your hearts set on any of these, reach out to email@example.com and we will refund your deposit.
