This is the least enthusiastic I've seen people for RSD. Is anyone going to try for anything? I initially didn't think there was much I wanted, but then I started really looking, and there is quite a bit.
Ceramic Dog/Deerhoof split 7"
Gil Scott-Heron-Nothing New LP
Man Man-The Man In the Turban with a Blue Face LP
Pussy Galore-Pussy Gold 5000 LP (This is my number one must find tomorrow)
Sun Records Comp 12"
Hank Williams-Garden Spot Programs 10"
Ghoul-Hang Ten LP
Ray Parker Jr.-Ghostbusters 10" (this is my gf favorite movie ever so I'm hoping to find this for her)
There is a lot of other stuff that looks great too, and I'm sure I'll spend way too much money as usual
The selection was very small compared to last year at Zia. The guy at the record store kept telling people there will be more stock today--but when I asked him specifically he said "maybe". I picked up a few things, but the one at the top of my list was not even there, as far as I can tell.
They actually put a lot of the releases out yesterday, at the Coachella store, which surprised me... The girl I talked to about the releases I was looking for said they expected to be receiving them throughout the weekend, including Sunday... I'm getting a late start for Coachella today, but it's the first place I want to stop, just in case they have anything I want.
Apparently Stranded opened at 9am today. I picked up Of Montreal and The Space Project, but most of the 7"s were gone. Really wanted Dino Jr/Cure and Lips/Devo. I'll test my luck tomorrow to see what people passed up on.

Found most of what I'm looking for (or in the case of the Natasha khan single and dresden dolls, someone else found for me) except school of seven bells (no chance), Charlotte gainsbourg (apparently fingerprints and amoeba have this), Chvrches 7", Damon Albarn, and ray parker Jr. Two of those are UK-only so I'll be checking discogs.
Shops cannot put stock on their websites until Sat next week. 1 week shop exclusive is part of the deal of being a RSD stockist.
I recall you mentioning that, and that's what Rough Trade did last year, but some places seem to violate this rule. There's at least two items I've ordere donline during RSD itself in the past. This year Amoeba claims any items they have remaining will be available on amoeba.com 4/20.
