Celebrate Record Store Day in Fountain Valley, CA

April 14, 2016

It’s that time of year again… And, no, we don’t mean tax season. It’s Record Store Day on April 16, 2016! A relatively new “holiday,” the first Record Store Day was held April 19, 2008 and was the brainchild of independent record store owners and employees who wanted to celebrate and raise awareness about independent record stores around the world.  This Saturday, carry on the tradition of Record Store Day by joining other music enthusiasts and supporting your local, independent record store. At participating record stores, there will be special vinyl and CD releases along with a variety of promotional products made exclusively for Record Store Day 2016.

If you live in Orange County, one record store which is participating is Dr. Freecloud’s Record Shoppe in Fountain Valley, CA. The shop will have many exclusive records available just for Record Store Day, and those who have missed previous Record Store Day or Black Friday vinyl will be able to purchase those as well. In keeping with the festive spirit of the event, Dr. Freecloud’s will be handing out free doughnuts (while they last), and there will be live DJ's spinning vinyl while you shop.

Serving the Fountain Valley community since 1994, Dr. Freecloud's Record Shoppe specializes in all things Vinyl as they buy, sell, and trade new and used vinyl from every musical genre. With over 100,000 new and used records in stock, you are sure to find something you want, but if not, the shop gets new vinyl and CDs weekly, so stop by often to see what is new. In addition to the music, Dr. Freecloud’s sells clothing, turntables, DJ bags and cases, needles, and more.

If you buy records at Dr. Freecloud’s Record Shoppe which a faraway friend or family member would love, just stop by the AIM Mail Center in Fountain Valley for help with any packing and shipping needs.
