RSD Drops - June 18, 2022
The second part of Record Store Day 2022 is fast approaching! #RSDDrops is happening on June 18, 2022!
Cardinal Record Co. will be bringing in a lot of the titles for June, below is a list of some of the titles we are expecting. You can find a list of titles we are expecting by clicking here. A couple of boxes are running late. If you don't see it on this list, do not expect to see it at Cardinal Record Co on June 18! We will post a full list with estimated quantities on this page the day before #RSDDrops!
We'll open 2 hours early for #RSDDrops on June 18. We will be open from 9 AM - 7 PM.
All Non-RSD titles will be 10% off in-store only on Saturday, June 18.
Reminder: We have moved into a new store since the last RSD! The new store is at 962 Baxter Avenue, Louisville, KY 40204. This is just a mile down the street from the old store! More space, more titles!
We do expect at least a small line to form. There aren't as many titles nor is the demand as high as it was in April, but we still have very limited copies of some in-demand titles. If you want a more limited-run record this time, show up early.
Rules for the line:
1. Be courteous to your line neighbors. Rushing, pushing, etc will not get your hands on a limited LP faster. It might get you kicked out of the line, however.
2. No holding places in line, but please do allow your line neighbors to excuse themselves if they need to get water, etc.
3. Parking around the area is plentiful. You can park in front of the Starbucks, in the Walgreens Parking lot, etc. This is public parking. (Note: the parking lot is chained off overnight)
4. Please be aware of your surroundings.
5. Anyone discussing flipping, reselling, etc. of any records will be asked to leave.
We have more space and there aren't anywhere near as many titles this time. We're not using the menu system again, instead we will have all RSD titles on the wall and allow a few people in at a time for the best shopping experience for everyone. If you need help finding something, please consult a member of our staff.
TIP: If you have a printed list (or handwritten), it will help us help you much faster.
General Info - #RSDDrops
The process and rules in place are mostly the same. The only big difference is the list!
Due to ongoing supply chain issues, some titles simply were not available in time for the April Record Store Day. These titles were pushed back to June 18th. A few titles have been added since April.
A big difference for us is the location! We have moved stores since the last RSD. We are now at 962 Baxter Avenue on the second floor (above the El Nopal). This is about a mile from the last store!
We ordered most of the titles on the list! We have started to receive inventory in as of the week of June 6th, but we will not have final counts until a couple of days before Record Store Day on June 18th. Like we did in April, we will post a spreadsheet with more information on quantities much closer to the day of.
We do expect at least a small line before we open.
We do not expect demand to be quite the same as it was in April, but we do expect to see very high demand for a small selection of titles on this list. If you're interested in a title that has a limited run or a small number pressed (Nicki Minaj and My Morning Jacket, for example) you will want to get here early.
We can't! All titles are first-come first-served and in-store only on Record Store Day on June 18th.
We had to sign a pledge with Record Store Day. They (and we) take this pledge very seriously. Please do not ask any member of our staff to hold a Record Store Day title for you.
We are offering 10% off our entire inventory of non-RSD titles. This means all non-RSD CDs and vinyl (including used records) will be 10% off in-store only on Record Store Day!
All Record Store Day titles are strictly in-person only for RSD on June 18th due to the RSD pledge. This is all about celebrating your local, independent record store and we encourage you to visit your local store on RSD.
Any titles we have left AFTER Record Store Day will be posted online on Sunday, June 19th at 8 AM ET.
