Record Store Day – Black Friday 2012 – Electric Fetus

November 25, 2012

My daughter and I made our Black Friday first stop Minneapolis’ Electric Fetus.  We were not too extreme, arriving at 8:00 for a 9:00 opening and were rewarded with queue holder numbers #22 and #23.  That was early enough to catch our limit of Record Store Day special editions.  Thank goodness for sub-freezing conditions.

We continued the family tradition, originated by my wife, of giving away our extra number.

The Fetus is well-organized for this event.  An employee gave us our number right away so we did not have to wait in the cold.  Black Friday Record Store Day is the little brother of Record Store Day – there are not nearly as many releases, but still plenty of ways to blow a hundred bucks.  The Fetus augmented the national releases with a bunch of Secret Stash 7 inch singles related to the recent Twin Cities Funk and Soul release (I had to restrain myself on those since I had purchased the limited edition purple vinyl edition earlier this fall).

Now that I have taken care of myself, I guess it is time to get into the Christmas spirit and think about others.
