RSD DROP #2: PHONE-A-THON
UPDATE: PHONE-A-THON SIGN-UPS ARE NOW CLOSED. SEE YOU IN THE PIT, THAT IS, ON THIS WEBSITE, AT NOON (CST) ON SATURDAY THE 26th WHEN THE REMAINING TITLES GO LIVE.
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26th / 7AM-11:30AM (CST)
The second of three RSD Drops is happening September 26th. We're gonna do things a bit differently for this one, so pay attention here, ok?
For RSD Drop #2, 10,000 Hz will not be offering any in-person shopping. Instead, for our *local* customers (*local* meaning anyone close enough to drive to the shop and pick their order up), we'll sell RSD titles and anything else you might want by randomly-assigned phone appointments beginning at 7AM on the 26th. On these calls, we'll take your order and payment, and we'll schedule a convenient curb-side pick-up time beginning at 8AM that morning and continuing through the following week or later if need be. All RSD Drop titles remaining after the morning will be available right here on this website to everyone everywhere in the U.S. beginning at 12PM (CST).
The appointment lottery will work exactly the same as last time around. We'll randomly draw your names and assign you a time slot in the order your name is picked. Any one of you could be first in the, uh, telephonic line. Enter your name, phone number, and email when you sign up, and we'll email you the phone-appointment schedule on Wednesday, September 23rd. Once all the RSD releases have arrived in our shop, we'll make a list available of all the titles we received, what quantities we've got, and our prices for you to check out before your call so you know what you're getting yourself into.
And that's more or less the gist of it.
1. Sign up.
2. Check your email on September 23rd to see your appointment time.
3. Answer our call at your assigned time on September 26th.
4. Buy what you want over the phone.
5. Schedule your pickup time.
6. Park in our designated curbside spot in front of the shop at that time.
7. Stay in your car, put your mask on, and we'll run your records out to you.
8. Go home.
9. Enjoy your new records.
NOW HERE'S A BUNCH OF OTHER INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW:
_You must sign up on this page to participate in this event. If you signed up for the last one, you've still gotta sign up again. There will be no walk-ups and no other phone orders taken that morning.
_You must answer when we call if you want to keep your place in the queue. We won't be answering any calls that morning - only making them. So don't screen your calls at your appointment time. If you don't answer, we'll bump you to the back of the queue and try you back after all the other appointments.
_You must be able to pick up your order. These morning phone appointments are for locals only, and by locals I mean people who are close enough to come to the store to get their stuff. We will not be shipping any orders placed during the phone appointments.
_We will have the vast majority of available titles for RSD Drop #2, but keep in mind that these things are all limited edition and some of them will likely sell out quickly. We've done our best to order solid quantities of the most requested titles from our customer survey back in March, but we have very limited control over how many copies of certain titles we'll be able to get. That's just the way of it in some cases.
_All RSD titles are one per person, no exceptions. This is important. Same rule will apply on the website.
_Masks are absolutely required at pickup. For the love of all that is sacred, wear one when you come to get your records. I don't know if you've heard but 200,000ish Americans have died because of a virus that is largely passed in the air, often by people who are infected but feel no symptoms. Why do you think we've remained closed for 6 months and why else would we go through all the trouble to set this event up the way that we have? If you are anti-mask at this point for some absurd reason and are gonna be a whiny child about wearing one when you interact with me or my staff, do not sign up. If not for the pandemic, I would tell you to go literally anywhere else. Instead, please just stay home. Don't know how to be any more clear than that.
ALRIGHT? IT'S GONNA BE AS FUN AS WE CAN MAKE IT, I SWEAR.
