We just wanted to thank all of the people who rolled through yesterday during Record Store Day #RSD13 it was one of our best days in sales in recent past. It was a great feeling to see a line of people waiting for us when we opened our shop Saturday morning. It was great seeing such a wide mix of people throughout the day including some oldschool heads, regular customers, new faces, good friends, family and all ages. Even though the day was focused heavily on Record Store Day exclusive vinyl releases, the bulk of the sales came from our massive inventory which covered lot's of cheap records, rare vinyl and new releases too. It was great to see so much love and appreciation for vinyl and most of all mad support for our store...
much respect to all our customers we greatly appreciate you!
"Let's make every day Record Store Day"
Ron D Core, helen* + Zzyzx
This Saturday, April 20th is the official national Record Store Day!
Dr. Freecloud's Record Shoppe is geared up and ready to sell you loads of sick exclusive vinyl releases just for this special day. Besides all the exclusive records we will be getting in there's also thousands of records going out on the selling floor that nobody has dug through yet. As a bonus Ron D Core will be putting out some of his rare hidden vinyl gems for this day. If you love vinyl and are a serious collector, then this date shouldn't be missed.
here's some genres that are coming in for Record Store Day!
Rock, Indie, Metal, Punk, Hardcore, Drum N Bass, IDM, Funk, Soul, Psyche Rock, Dubstep, Hip Hop, Turntablism + more!
Be prepared to shop because these records are limited in supply and once they sell they are gone.
Open Decks at the shop all day during Record Store Day - if you want to spin some vinyl on the recently beefed up Dr. Freecloud's Sound System, just contact us at the shop or just come by and put your name on the list!!!
We wanted to personally thank everyone who pledged, contributed, promoted and reposted to our Indiegogo "Survive & Thrive" fund raising campaign. We didn't meet our intended goal of $14,500, but we are extremely grateful for all the pledges that came through. Thanks also to those people who donated DJ Mix CD's, vinyl, t-shirts, stickers, dj mixtapes, buttons and more to put into our "Grab Bag" & "VIP Grab Bag" perk pledges. Thanks to Nate Jackson from the OC Weekly for writing such a great article about our cause and campaign and thanks to Brandon from Bell Ringer Records for throwing such a great in store benefit event for us, it was a huge success. A big thanks to those of you who came down to the shop and showed your support by making purchases here at the shop and through our online store as your way of helping our campaign. The biggest thanks goes out to our great friend Jon Molina, without him we wouldn't have done the Indiegogo fund raising campaign and also he was the social network engineer behind the promotional end. Collectively from all the pledges, personal donations, direct purchases & the special in store BBQ benefit event at the store & online it was truly a huge success for us. Our store got a nice boost in business over the past 40+ days throughout the campaign and the money raised will definitely help us get through the tough times and enable us to catch up on some bills and finally get some needed inventories.
Here's the stats from the campaign
Campaign money raised - $8,190
