RSDroundvector_2016It’s that time again, and we’re here to help you get the RSD releases of your dreams.  We open at 8 am.  If you line up early, Bee Coffee will offer complimentary coffee.  Live music starts at noon across the street on the deck at 10 Johnson Avenue Coffee and will run until 6 pm, reconvening at State Street Pub later in the evening.  Complete details on the bands, etc here. Beast Food Truck will arrive around noon to provide delicious lunch opportunities outside, and you can also get snacks and lunch specials at 10 Johnson Avenue.  Parking is free anywhere you can find a spot (but avoid the World of Vapor lot please).

We have a comprehensive stock this year, deeper than ever.  Of the 325 or so official exclusive releases, we’ll have copies of all but a few.  We’ll also have copies of most of the 90 “Limited Run/Regional” and 35 “First Day of Release” RSD titles, along with an additional bunch of what are known as “Unofficial” releases–unsanctioned by RSD but released at the same time.  Many of the latter are quite cool. and quite limited

hmstorybackinsertWe also have our own release this year courtesy of our sister label, Timechange Records in partnership with Third Uncle Records. This is “The Hardly Music Story” 7″ box set, featuring three 7″ records, hand lathe-cut.  Each side features a different Hardly Music artist, vintage Indiana recordings from the early 1980’s.  Only 50 copies available.

We also continue to offer our famous quantity discount policy on Record Store Day.  Spend $100 on multiple items, 10% off (you must spend $150+ if one of the items is over $100).  Spend $250+, 15% off.  Spend $500+ , 20% off. Remember, only one copy of each title per person.  Some of our quantities are quite limited due to the increased demand for vinyl everywhere.


gratefulnassauHope everyone had an enjoyable Record Store Day this year. We really are grateful to our customers for your support. It was a very exciting and fun day here, blessed with summer-like weather so the bands could play outside and early birds didn’t have to wait in cold weather prior to opening.

Although sales exceeded our expectations, we still have a healthy selection of leftover RSD releases, including many that we didn’t expect to still have, including:

Grateful Dead box
Flaming Lips 10″
Jerry Garcia LP
Stooges LP
Social Distortion LP
Ryan Adams 7″
Gwar LP
Jurassic 5 box
George Clinton box
Saints LP
Paul McCartney “Family Way” Soundtrack LP
Trey Anastasio 7″

If you are looking for any of these, come and get ’em, or call during business hours to confirm availability.


#RSD15 Questions and Answers

rsdposter2015-2(Updated 4/17) In which we interview ourselves and feature many of the questions you are asking us:

Q: What exactly are you stocking for RSD?

A: We’ll have at least one or two copies of most of the main RSD Exclusives, along with another hundred or so titles selected from the regional/limited/first issue lists. This includes box sets (Phish, Dead, George Clinton, Jurassic 5, Miles Davis, Ork Box. KMD).  Overall it looks like we’ll offer well over 500 titles and have multiples of most.

Q:  How about official RSD shirts?

A:  Yes, we’ll have the general RSD logo shirts in a few different styles. We are not stocking any band-specific ones.

Q:  What about the special edition Crosley turntables?

A:  Yes, we’ll have the Ramones Crosley and the Peanuts Crosley.

Q:  Any local RSD items?

A:  Sleeping Bag and Doog cassettes from Musical Family Tree, and America Owns The Moon cassette from Gloryhole. Still waiting to see if our Rev. Peyton 7″ order comes in.

Q:  What time do you open?  Is there going to be a long line?

A:  8 am. Unlike some of the larger stores, our line should be relatively short. We expect everyone to get into the store within a few minutes of opening. Come early for best selection.

Q:  What are the rules on holds and quantities?

A:  No holds, no pre-orders, saves or any holds on RSD itself.  Each customer is limited to one (and only one) copy of each item.  Beginning Sunday, those rules will be relaxed.

Q: Will you have “goodie bags”?

A:  Yes, we’ll have 50 Alabama Shakes branded tote bags stuffed with various fun RSD related stuff–buttons, CD samplers,etc. These will go to the first 50 customers.

Q:  How late do you stay open?

A:  This depends on traffic. At least 7 pm and probably until 8 pm but we’ll close whenever business indicates it’s time. Call first if you want to check, 375-3715.

Q:  What are you definitely NOT going to have?

A:  Brand New – Deja Entendu. Sorry but there are hardly any copies available anywhere.  Elvis Presley Acetate–we tried but came up empty. Stephen Hawking 7″, it’s a UK release and not available in the US despite all the publicity it’s getting. Generally this is true for any of the UK RSD releases, they’re impossible to get in the US. Sorry for the disappointment on these but there’s plenty of other stuff to enjoy grabbing.  Update: we also didn’t get the Reverend Peyton 7″ or the Neko Case LP.  No idea why.

Q: How about live music?

A:  Yes, beginning at 2 pm, starting with Deezen. Then Last Four Digits at about 3:30 and The Dockers around 5. Live music will be across the street on the old Lazy Daze patio weather permitting. Weather looks great so expect three great bands rocking Johnson Avenue on Saturday.

Q:  How about special sales?

A:  We’ll have a fresh selection of 99 cent records outside, and our used turntables will be 20% off.

Q:  Food and drink?

A: We’ll have complimentary beverages and snacks while they last.

Preliminary Record Store Day Stock List

Below is the list of titles we know we’ll be receiving for RSD 2015.  In some cases there will be only 1 or 2 copies available; in other cases, as many as 10.

We’re Open!

First, an apology.  We didn’t quite make our scheduled Monday, June 2 opening date.  The havoc created by merging Bookmamas and Irvington Vinyl just proved to be too much for the time allotted, especially since we also had to completely empty and clean the old spot on Audubon Road.

The good news is that we’re open as of 11 am Wednesday, and we’ll probably be open every day from here on out except for holidays, because our new hours are Monday – Saturday 11 am to 7 pm, and Sundays 12-4.  We’ll also stay open late during shows and events at our Underground 9 space, and selected other evenings.  Please note our new phone number, shared with Bookmamas:  317-375-3715.

Honest, folks, it’s still a mess.  There are boxes everywhere and both the books and vinyl need some serious order.  But we’re getting there, and we’ve missed being open, so we’ll continue to fine tune our operation while you shop.

We’ve already stepped up our new vinyl offerings. We’ve listened to what you have been looking for and have started to stock reissues where the original vinyl is scarce and/or expensive.  New vinyl will arrive at least weekly if not more often, and of course we’re constantly buying record collections so the vintage vinyl will be flowing daily.  We are increasing our stock of CD’s, primarily used.  We’re also stocking as much local music as possible, so if that’s you, let us know what you have.  Just arrived: Zero Boys “Monkey” LP/CD, along with their “Pro Dirt” 7″ and the reissue of the legendary “Living in the 80’s” 7″.  Also just in:  the Circle City Band and Turner Brothers LP’s.

Opening Monday, June 2

Irvington Vinyl opens Monday, June 2 (hopefully!).  Formerly part of Irvington Vintage, we are now 100% focused on music.  Antiques, collectibles and other non-music items from Irvington Vintage are being relocated to Southport Antique Mall.

We will occupy roughly half of Bookmamas space at 9 Johnson Avenue, and Bookmamas will continue to offer the best selection of Indiana books in the city, and a more focused selection of used books.

We’ll be expanding our selection considerably, including:

– new local releases on vinyl, CD and cassette
– reissues
– selected new releases on vinyl and CD
– more turntables and stereo gear

We promise an easier-to-navigate layout, and an increasingly vast selection of used vinyl in all genres, carefully selected and organized by artist and genre.

We’ll also be hosting in-stores, release parties, music events and live shows in the Underground 9 space.

And, we’ll be open 7 days a week!

Coming Soon to Indianapolis!

Irvington Vinyl is Indy’s newest record store.  Actually, we might be familiar to some of you who are already in on our secret.

We’ll tell you more soon. Stay tuned.
