Depends entirely on when I get back from Lagunitas/my level of sobriety and, by extension, my level of energy. Sounds awesome though. Thanks for the reminder.

I will be bringing some radiohead records. and some pulp cds, since learning that we are open to other mediums. I have some cool obscure b-sides and things.
and maybe some creme eggs.
I might not bring anything this time. I think I'll be there around 2 or 3 though.
Sincerest apologies, but I have to cancel this afternoon's record club meeting due to scheduling conflicts. Not even conflicts, we just have a ton of shit to get done before we leave Thursday morning and we don't really have time for record club this week. Sorry guys. To make up for it, all you non-Coachella folks are free to host a meeting while we're all at Coachella next weekend.
BARC meeting for 4/7/2012 has been canceled. We are not meeting. Do not show up to my house, I will only mock you from behind my door. That, or we just won't be there.
I feel like we should do a RSD meeting. Lots of goodies to play with. Well, no. That means I'd get off work, go to Amoeba and wait, buy my shit, then sleep for an hour before you all come over and then I go to work again. Hmmmm, no. Maybe meet Sunday the 22nd?
I don't think I can do a record club that weekend, BUT I was going to see if you wanted to go to Amoeba.
I'm a little afraid of the damage I'll do to a credit card on that day.
7 am. goodness.
Well, I work graveyard, so I'm already up and ready to get busy. I'll get home around 7, change, eat, and drive down to Amoeba. There's one record that I absolutely must acquire and I'll do what I have to in order to get it.
7AM? They don't open until 10:30AM. Are they opening early for RSD or are you planning on waiting in line for 3.5 hours?
Yeah. I own books and a thermos, I'll be alright. The issue is that if I go to bed after work, there's no way I'm getting up in time. And if I sit waiting at home, I'm going to fall asleep. This way I'll be home laden with records, fed and in bed by noon.
Holy cow. I guess I'm not invested enough in any of the releases to wait that long. There are EIGHT I want, so I'm almost (not quite) hoping some are sold out or not available there.
I need to talk with my house-guest-to-be, but I was thinking maybe getting there at 10 at earliest. Heh.
I'm likely only buying three 12" and a couple 7" for the sake of budgeting, but each of the LPs are extremely limited. Well worth three hours I would have spent sleeping or smoking weed.
I picked up that NMH vinyl box set at the show last night, holy crap it's so legit o.O

I've managed to par my wishlist down to 6 things. So there is no way to know what's going to be on sale in which stores/areas? This is a new one for me... I'm usually at coachella during RSD.
me too. it sounds like stores don't even know what they are getting yet. I talked to the guy at grooves to see if they were trying to get anything and he seemed a bit clueless, saying the guy who usually does it is on vacation and probably hasn't ordered anything. so much for that.
there is a real thread about this.
This is also my first non-Coachella RSD, hence my consternation over acquisition of coveted items. Shoot me a call or text that morning and I'll tell you how it's looking. And I can snag you anything you think might sell-out, just get me the titles.
I'll probably check with you too, to see how it's going, since I can get to the Haight pretty quickly if it's looking iffy.
