Record Store Day Drops 2020 at Sorry State Records: PART DEUX!

Record Store Day Drops date number 2 is coming up on September 26 and Sorry State is participating once again. Our appointment lottery system seemed to work well for drop #1 so we're going to do the same thing this time. The only difference is that, if you receive an appointment, I'll be asking you to confirm your slot... last time we had a couple of last-minute cancelations that I hope we can avoid this time. As a reminder, here are the rules:

We will have 16 private shopping appointments available on September 26, starting at 12:00PM, then at 12:30PM, 1:00, 1:30, etc., until our final appointment of the day at 7:30.

Appointments are strictly limited to 30 minutes. Please arrive on time to your appointment; if your appointment is for 2:30, for instance, you will need to leave the store by 3. Unfortunately we cannot provide additional time if you are late or miss your appointment.

You can bring聽one guest to your appointment. You and your guest (if you bring one) will be the only customers in the store during your appointment. You and your guest must wear a mask and must sanitize your hands as you enter the store.

Record Store Day Exclusive Releases are strictly limited to 1 copy per customer. Yes, you and your guest can each buy one copy of the same record.

We will assign appointment times by lottery. Please use the form below to sign up for the appointment lottery. We will get in touch with you a few days before September 26 to let you know which appointment slot you have been assigned. We are only able to accommodate 16 appointments, so signing up for the lottery does not guarantee that you will get an appointment.

Unfortunately, we also cannot guarantee that we will get stock of any particular release. We've put in our orders, and it's up to the distributors what kind of fill they give us. As usual, you can expect that we'll have punk and metal titles in larger quantities.

Our remaining stock of Record Store Day exclusive releases will go up for sale on our web site at 8PM on September 26. You can bookmark this page and return at that time to see what's left. Sales through our web site are first come, first served.

Please do not show up without an appointment. We will not let you shop. Out of fairness to the customers who participate in the lottery, we will not be accepting any walk-up customers on September 26.

Scroll to the bottom of this page for a list of Record Store Day exclusive releases we have ordered.

The lottery is now closed. Check back soon to enter the lottery for RSD Drop #3!

Record Store Day 2020 Exclusive Releases We Ordered

The following is a list of everything we ordered for the original April 2020 Record Store Day. Some of these releases have been canceled or changed, some came out earlier in the summer, and the bulk of them have been reassigned to the three RSD Drop Dates. Unfortunately, just because we ordered something doesn't mean we'll get it, but hopefully we will have it for its newly assigned release / drop date. Most everything here will be available only in VERY limited quantities.
