When is Record Store Day 2024?

  • The best day of the year is happening April 20, 2024 Mark your calendars! 

When will the list be available?

  • The list is available and you will find it HERE. Our list of records we will have that day will be on our website soon.

How do I reserve copies of a record or pre-pay for them?

  • It is against Record Store Day policies for any store to offer live auctions, pre-sales or pre-orders on any RSD albums being released on April 20. If you suspect a store is soliciting or taking pre-orders on RSD albums, you can report them directly to Record Store Day, using this email address information@recordstoreday.com Please include pictures and any information you have about the store. 

How do I request certain records to be in-store at Curious Collections for RSD?

  • Our wish list (Google Form) is CLOSED. Submitting a wish list with Curious Collections in NO WAY reserves or holds the items for you!
  • When you submit a wish list with us, we base our ordering on what you are requesting. If you intend to buy the albums, let us know, we will get them in our store for you to purchase from us on Record Store Day. If you do not fill out a wish list with us, there is a chance we may not carry what you are wanting, as we do not buy all the albums on the list, only the ones our customers are requesting.  
  • But if there is something you are wanting that we did not order, please reach out to us asap and we will try our best to get that title in for you. Many of the albums are still available for us to order, even after RSD. 

Who is the Record Store Day Ambassador for 2024? 

After a long career in the music industry we have decided to announce that… we are going to continue to have a long career in the music industry (sorry for any inconvenience). 

Our first order of business as a freshly independent Paramore is to shine a light on independent record stores— a vital part of our journey from music obsessed school friends to professional music makers. 

With that being said, we are humbled to be your Ambassadors for Record Store Day 2024. The timing feels kismet. 

The discovery of music was always meant to be romantic. Indie record shops are some of the only spaces we’ve got that offer a tangible, tactile experience of music discovery. 

In this world that feels more disconnected and hostile than ever, it feels important to remain in touch (literally) with what inspires us, empowers us, or simply brings us joy. 

Thankfully, for all our sakes, there still survives among the chaos, the purity and radical simplicity of a great record store. 

    Will Curious Collections have phone appointments this year?

    • We will not have any scheduled phone appointments this year. If you would like to purchase Record Store Day albums over the phone, you can call us Sunday, April 21, to buy any remaining RSD albums over the phone at 979-704-3059. No holds or Pre-orders on RSD albums. Our Doors will open at 10 AM on Sunday, April 21 for in-store shopping.

        When will the RSD albums be available for purchase online from Curious Collections?

        • Sunday, Apr 21, 2023 around Noon Central time
        • All online albums will say "Out of Stock" until we release the remaining albums for online purchase on Sunday at Noon.

        What is the purchase limit per customer at Curious Collections?

        • 1 per customer/household! Max of 10 albums per customer.
        • No pre-orders, holds or pre-sales on RSD albums.

        How many of each album will Curious Collections have to sell?

        • For security reasons, we do not disclose the number of pieces we are getting of any of our albums. 
        • I wouldn't wait and stroll in Saturday afternoon expecting to get a copy of the things you want, especially the highly anticipated albums. Submit your wish list to us ASAP.
        • So, get here early, don't wait, you might miss out. Quantities are limited to 1 per household and 10 total.

        When will doors open at Curious Collections on RSD for in-store shopping?

        • Doors will open at 8 am on Saturday, April 20, 2024
        • Camping out is permitted. Be aware, there are no outside bathrooms to use. There will be pay what you want snacks and drinks and games available to pass the time. 
        • We will have food and drink all day long on a "pay what you want" basis. 

        How soon can I come to wait in line at Curious Collections?

        • We want to encourage customers to come shop in-store on Record Store Day, and we realize there may be a line to get in. Get here early for first dibs on titles since there are NO holds or pre-sales for anyone on RSD.
        • We will have water, games, puzzles and even snacks available for those who decide to get here early.
        • We want to make it the best experience we possibly can. We plan to have food and drinks available on a "pay what you want" basis.  We also plan to have some booths and vendors outside the shop as well!  Live music and possibly a DJ later on in the day. 

        What can I expect when the line starts moving at 8 AM on Saturday?

        • A bit different from years past, the RSD albums will be set up in our listening room and will be letting in a select number of shoppers at a time. More instructions on what to expect the day of will be sent via email to our subscribers so sign up for our emails.  Navigate to our website, curiouscollectionstx.com and sign up for our emails and text messages so you don't miss out on important RSD information.
        • We will notify the line, throughout the day, if we run out of something, so you don't continue to wait only to find out we are already sold out
        • We will update everyone on our socials as the day progresses, including an alert if and when our stock runs low enough where it looks like we’re on the verge of a sellout and you’ll be able to find updates on all of those platforms. 

        One last thing: Curious Collections reserves the right to ask anyone to leave our premises at any time for any reason. In the event of disorderly conduct, we also reserve the right to call in officer reinforcements if needed. 

        Get excited, it's gonna be a great Record Store Day 2024!
