I’d like to send a huge mahalo to BEATS by DRE for getting in on the Record Store Day action by providing us with a brand new pair of their Studio headphones for our listening station. It was an extremely generous gift and we’re very thankful to have your support. Everyone was loving it!
Our Record Store Day celebration was already shaping up to be awesome. Then, yesterday afternoon, I got a surprise text. It was Steve, guitar player and vocalist for suddenly disbanded Maui hardcore band Order of the White Rose. He informed me that Noah, lead singer and bassist, had paid Maui surprise visit and Steve offered to reunite the band for a special RSD performance. How could I say no?! So, through the help of our ohana, we’ve assembled the needed equipment and are ready to rock hard this Saturday. Also added to the lineup is our very own Selecta Boomshot and new local punk band The Minorities.
The official Record Store Day items list has been made public and we wanted to make sure you got a chance to look at all the goodies. I ordered as much as possible. It’s now just a matter of seeing what we luck out on getting this year. I also made a teaser flyer to go along with this news. If you’re a fellow store or RSD supporter please feel free to share the picture with all your friends, as well. Mark your calendars!

I realize it’s been almost a year since our last post, and I apologize for that. I’m hoping that by having the WP app on my phone I can change that. We’ve got a lot coming up, including a free movie screening, Record Store Day 2013 and much, much more.
A lot has changed in the past year, and we hope you visit us soon to see it all for yourself.
