Care to see some awesome bands and DJ sets while maintaining the dignity of not going to Coachella? If so, you are in luck because there are some great in-stores coming your way for record store day. We are closing our Record Store Day coverage with a roundup of some of the deals and events in L.A. and beyond. Sales, limited edition releases, Foo Fighters and Rollins in-stores, silkscreenings, signings, and ever so much more this weekend!
Boy do they have a lot of events planned. You could pretty much spend the day here. In fact, we just might!
11 AM – 4 pm: T-shirt silkscreening brought to you by Anti-, epitaph records and Family Industries.
12pm: : evidence DJ set and signing
2 pm: LA Weekly's own Henry Rollins DJ set andsigning
4 pm: F*cked Up DJ set and signing
Check out their schedule and RSD store stock here.
If you feel like heading south on the 710 to Long Beach, you can watch F*cked Up staff the counters and make music suggestions (before they head up to Hollywood to do their Amoeba in-store) and then you can try very hard to score tickets to the Foo Fighters and Off!, because it is completely sold out. Good luck!

Record Surplus is having what they refer to as a “Record Store Day – Big Blowout Sale!”. What does this mean? It means that from Friday April 15th to Sunday April 17th. all merchandise in The Attic will be 3 for .90¢ and the .90¢ CD section will be .23¢ each, and if that wasn't a good enough deal, they will take 20% off your ENTIRE purchase!.

Rockaway Records has been teasing us all week with tweets and Facebook posts. They claim to have ordered most of the 300+ RSD exclusive releases and will have extended store hours (10 am – 7 pm) on Saturday April 16. As per the RSD website, which you can check out here, they will also have a free raffle for a signed Alice Cooper guitar and lots of freebie giveaways. Get there early because they don't know how many of each release they will have!
Their website is here.
Vacation Vinyl has not, at present, posted about any in-store performances or DJ sets (though we heard some LA RECORD DJs might play? Not sure, check their site.) Anyway they have posted an extensive list of the titles that they expect to have on RSD. Go to here for a complete list of titles that you can get your grubby little paws on if you get there early enough!
While Wombleton is not an official RSD store they are certainly a record store and will be celebrating RSD with a sidewalk sale plus specials with bulk deals. We'd recommend checking it out–Wombleton has tons of rarities and hard-to-find 45s, you might get a deal!
