Record Store Day 2021 Drop 1 is going down at Lubbock's only independent, local record store, Ralph's Records (82nd & Indiana) on June 12th.

Record Store Day is like a holiday for vinyl collectors and a way to show your support for our local record store. Ralph's Records has been keeping us entertained for 40 years, and Lubbock would be exponentially less cool without it.

There are many amazing titles that Ralph's could be getting in this Saturday, but part of the fun of Record Store Day is the surprise. I suggest making yourself a short list of favorites to keep your eyes peeled for, and I definitely recommend getting there early for you best shot at getting your hands on rare, exclusive, and firsts from the best musicians in the world.

In addition to these vinyl treasures, Ralph's will be holding many incredible sales, including 25 cent overstock DVDs and $2 off new CDs, DVDs and Blu-Rays. There will also be surprise sales throughout the day.

Have fun on your hunt. Here's the full RSD list, but here's my shortlist:
