Everything You Need To Know About Record Store Day At Seasick

Tomorrow is the big day and we’ve got a lot going on! Pay attention or you might miss something.

First things first, all Record Store Day releases are first come, first served and limited to one copy per person per release. We do this because we have limited quantities and it ain’t fair if you buy all the copies. We cannot reserve releases or hold anything for anyone.

We will open the doors at 8:00 AM and let people in as we can. If you’ve been to Seasick you know the store is small. We can’t fit all of you at once, but we’ll try to move the line in and out as quickly as we can. If you are really wanting a certain release then you need to get in line EARLY. The line started at 5:30 AM last year and I can only imagine it will be earlier this year.

NO BAD ATTITUDES. If you can’t play nice, then we’re gonna ask you to leave. This is fun day and we’re here to celebrate music and independent record stores. If you can’t be courteous to other human beings then you’ve gotta go!

PARKING: Do NOT park in the Southern Skin Divers lot. You can park down the block in the empty lot or across the street at the Continental Gin. We are not responsible for theft or damages. RIDE YOUR BIKE.

Now that we’ve got all that out of the way, let’s talk about the cool stuff happening ALL day tomorrow. RAIN OR SHINE. Here’s a schedule:

Black Vinyl Ale!

Good People Brewing Company and Seasick Records have collaborated on a special release beer only available on April 18 at Seasick Records. Brewed at 33 1/3 RPM, The Black Vinyl Ale is crisp and tangy and dark as night. Herbal flavors of coriander and lemon mix with flaked rye and midnight wheat, offering a hint of roast and a fair share of earthy spice. An excellent balance of malts and hops, paired with an enhanced strain of Belgian yeast, this beer is as black as vinyl and will keep your taste buds spinning.

The beer will be FREE to sample for anyone 21+. We will also have custom Seasick/Good People 45 adapters available for purchase. Hope to see you on Record Store Day!
