A guide to Record Store Day 2014 in San Diego

In-stores, swag and other notable happenings

By Jeff Terich
record-store-day-2014 Record Store Day takes place on Saturday, April 19.

Tomorrow—Saturday, April 19—is that chaotic, frantic, lines-around-the-block, limited-edition geek-out celebration of mom-and-pop, brick-and-mortar retail that we call Record Store Day. Some people love it, some people hate it, but whether you’re an eBay pirate looking to make some cash on reselling limited-edition Dave Matthews Band box sets or just looking to take advantage of some sidewalk vinyl sales and maybe grab a David Bowie picture disc, it’s at least worth checking out.

Quite a few of San Diego’s record retailers are hosting special in-store events and making available some limited-edition merchandise, so here’s a round-up of what’s happening on Record Store Day in San Diego.


Lou’s Records (434 N. Coast Hwy. 101, Encinitas): Singer-songwriter Graham Nancarrow will perform in-store, plus Lou’s will have new “ultra limited” Record Store Day T-shirts. The store's been teasing its RSD inventory this week on Facebook, and it looks like there's a lot of goodies.


Off the Record (2912 University Ave., North Park): While the shop hasn’t mentioned anything about in-store performances, there is a special offer: The first four customers who spend more than $300 will receive a Metal Blade tote bag stuffed with around 20 “goodies.” Who doesn’t like surprises?


Access Hip-Hop (1537 Garnet Ave., Pacific Beach): Access Hip-Hop hasn’t announced who'll be behind the wheels of steel on Saturday, but its facebook page promises some of the “illest DJs” will be spinning. Check Facebook later today for the complete lineup.


M-Theory (915 W. Washington St., Mission Hills): Of all the shops in town with events happening on Record Store Day, M-Theory appears to have the most on the docket. There'll be live performances by The Donkeys and Murder City Devils frontman Spencer Moody. In addition, God Save the Cuisine food truck will serve food, Saint Archer will pour beer and DJs will spin records throughout the day. Check out the flyer here.


And if you’re just in it for the special limited vinyl and cassette releases, check out the full list of items here.
