YOU'VE GOT RSD DROP QUESTIONS, WE'VE GOT RSD DROP ANSWERS.
WHAT: RSD DROP 2022
WHEN: SATURDAY, JUNE 18th @ 10AM (CST)
WHERE: THE RAILYARD + 10,000 Hz RECORDS
1st AVENUE, DOWNTOWN OPELIKA, ALABAMA
Here's what we're doing:
_10,000 Hz Records [THE BRICK & MORTAR SHOP] will be open 10AM-5PM on Saturday, June 18th with our usual 6000+ new vinyl titles in stock.
_10,000 Hz Records [THE RSD VINYL POP-UP SHOP] will open at 10AM in the Railyard and close around 2PM on Saturday, June 18th. We'll have about 60 of the exclusive titles available that day, including nice quantities on releases from Pearl Jam, Jerry Garcia, Kali Uchis, Miles Davis, Prince, etc. We'll also be putting a pretty substantial 300+ used LP drop, as well as a bunch of fresh used $2 LPs and $1 singles. At 2PM we'll be closing the pop-up shop to begin moving whatever RSD stock remains back indoors to prep for our online sale on Sunday, June 19th. All RSD titles will still be available in the shop for the remainder of the day, but you may need to ask for them after 2PMish.
_If you're asking yourself what in the hell the RSD VINYL POP-UP SHOP is, it's this: we will set up all of the 60ish RSD 2022 titles we've ordered for the day in the open air of the loading dock in the Railyard, about 20 yards down the street from our front door on 1st Avenue.
_Nothing too convoluted this time around - this will look more or less like our other recent RSD events. Just line up outside of the 1st Avenue entrance to the Railyard [it'll be clearly marked]. There may be a line...we have no idea when that might start if it does at all.
_RE: COVID SAFETY - Less than half of Lee County residents have received 1 dose of any of the Covid-19 vaccines. There will certainly be people at this event who have not been vaccinated. You'll be outside, where the CDC says Covid transmission is highly unlikely...we're not requiring masks for the Railyard, but we are still encouraging social distancing and masks, and you should absolutely wear a mask around other people if you're unvaccinated, period. You will still be required to wear a mask over your mouth and nose while in our brick & mortar shop. That's just our rule, same as it's been since we re-opened - if you're gonna make a big deal out of following it, please go ahead and make plans to shop elsewhere.
_The first 10-12 customers in line will enter the Railyard one by one with a little time between them at 10AM, and we'll try to keep capacity in the Railyard at roughly 15 shoppers at any given moment. Our regular capacity limit of staff + 8-10ish customers will be in effect in the store, so you may need to wait a few minutes for your turn to enter the brick & mortar shop. You will be asked to check any shopping, tote, or otherwise large bags at the entrance to either space, ok?
_As usual, we've ordered fairly heavily for this event, and we've done our best to get substantial quantities of the titles you all requested the most in our customer survey back in the spring. That being said, please keep in mind that these titles are all limited edition and there are 1400+ stores participating in RSD events all over the U.S. this year - some titles will be hard to come by and/or will sell out quickly. If you miss out on something on the day, please don't hesitate to ask if more copies are still available from our distributors...we'll do our best to restock anything that our customers miss out on if we can work it out in the days following this event, ok?
_All of our RSD DROP stock will be viewable but not, uh, "checkoutable" in the RSD tab at 10000HzRECORDS.COM by the end of the day on Thursday, June16th (if not before). There, you'll be able to see descriptions, photos of the actual items, our prices, and our starting stock numbers for each title.
_FOR OUR ONLINE CUSTOMERS, all of our RSD titles that remain after our in-person Saturday event will be available at 10000HzRECORDS.COM beginning at 7AM [CST, Central, Alabama time] on Sunday, June 19th. Based on how things went for last year's RSD events, we expect many of our remaining titles to move very quickly once they're made available on this site. If you intend to shop with us for RSD titles online, you should plan to do it early that Sunday morning, alright?
_As always, and per RSD rules, we cannot hold or pre-sell any RSD releases.
_And of course, all RSD releases are one per person. On the website, that translates to all RSD releases being one per person/household/shipping address/credit card/whatever. Multiple online orders containing the same names, shipping addresses, billing addresses, etc will be canceled without further explanation. No funny business. We don't play.
OK? Got it? Holler with questions if you've got'em. By phone during hours is pretty much always the fastest way to reach us: 334-748-9074.
