“Indie record stores were the only music teachers I ever had. The world would be a dark and lonely place without them.” ­– Neko Case

It’s been a long time since we’ve rock and rolled … at least Record Store Day style.

On Saturday, April 23 (8am-8pm), The Record Exchange will celebrate the first single-day global Record Store Day since 2019. This year marks the 15th anniversary of Record Store Day and the return of the traditional RSD April event, and per Record Exchange tradition, we’re turning it into a weekend-long celebration.


– The Record Exchange will have 275 exclusive Record Store Day releases available on Saturday, April 23. Titles include vinyl releases from Taylor Swift, Childish Gambino, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Grateful Dead, Kacey Musgraves, Rex Orange County, David Bowie, Alice in Chains, the Doors and many more – full list below, or visit for complete details on each title, cover images and a printable PDF. The Record Exchange Gift Shop will open at 7:30am on April 23 to let the first part of the line inside the store (you may line up outside as early as you wish). Exclusives will be available beginning at 8am. The first 25 people in line will receive vouchers for a free gift bag with purchase; a $50 gift card will be randomly inserted into one of the 25 bags. Free drip coffee will be available from 7:30 to 8am.

– Curtis Stigers will perform an after-hours in-store set at 8pm Sunday, April 24. The performance is a record release celebration for Stigers’ new album This Life. Admission wristbands are available with purchase of This Life on vinyl and CD. Full details here.

– Distant Family will kick off Record Store Day weekend with an album release in-store performance at 6pm Thursday, April 21. The band, which is opening for Built to Spill on a string of Midwestern tour dates in May, is celebrating the release of its second album Penumbra. Full details here.

– Boise musicians will busk on the sidewalk outside the store from 11am to 5pm April 23.

– A limited-edition Record Store Day T-shirt designed by Boise artist John Warfel will be available for purchase on April 23.

Woodland Empire Ale Craft will offer $1 off pints with a Record Exchange Record Store Day receipt on Saturday, April 23. Woodland Empire will be open 2-10pm on April 23.

NOTE ON THE TAYLOR SWIFT RSD EXCLUSIVE: If you’re planning on visiting The Record Exchange on Saturday for the extremely limited Taylor Swift exclusive, the release will not be out on the floor with the other titles. Customers will be able to enter a drawing between 8am and 8pm on Saturday (in person only) for a chance to purchase it. Full details here.
