We’re counting down the minutes until Record Store Day 2024. The annual celebration of independent record stores happens every year in April. This year, a lot of awesome albums are a part of the special release. If you need a place to celebrate, we recommend checking out one of these 5 record stores in the Tampa Bay area.

Keep in mind that this is a pretty big deal for a lot of people, so you may find lines wrapped around the building depending on what time you go. It’s also a possibility that the album you’re looking for may be gone.

The list of albums being released for Record Store Day dropped in February. Stores have to have their orders/requests in by the first week of March. Because of limited supply, many of these local record stores are following a “first come, first served” system. Per the Record Store Day pledge, these stores are not allowed to reserve, hold, or flip RSD releases.

There are a few releases this year that are going to be a hot commodity. Albums and repressing’s from Noah Kahan, the Weeknd, Paramore, Talking Heads, the Beatles, and Bowie are some of the most wanted.

What Is Record Store Day?

Record Store Day started in 2008 as a way to celebrate and spread the word about independent record stores. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day.

A lot of stores are going all out for Record Store Day 2024! These places will be offering food trucks, RSD merch, and more. You can find more info on Record Store Day here, and see all participating stores. Be sure to check each store’s social media to see when they open and if they’re carrying that album you’re looking for.
