Although we're still basking in the sun and heat of New York City, the fall is just around the corner, and we're getting ready for all that the season has to offer which includes Black Friday!

On Friday, November 26th, we'll celebrate Black Friday RSD 2021 with an excellent selection of titles which have just been announced.


The same guidelines as this year's Record Store Day events will apply on Friday, November 26th. Take some time to review below.

RSD Shopping Guidelines

Store is open from 9am until 8pm.
As usual, one copy per person, only. For fairness sake, we have to prohibit multiple buys of the same release.
Strictly first come, first served - no customer reservations.
Face-covering is required in-store, at all times.
We will be providing a ‘personal shopping service’ for Record Store Day releases. So, please have your wishlist ready prior to entering the store, and Rough Trade staff will look to obtain your selections for you. A wishlist form will be available at the store. Please keep in mind that you may not get everything on your list and that the titles on the list may change.
To help us manage the safe capacity of the store, we kindly ask that you are prompt with your purchase, helping us ensure everyone receives service, as fast as possible.
As it will be a busy day with unprecedented requirements, we kindly ask that you are patient and courteous to all our staff members.
All remaining / unsold Black Friday RSD releases will be available online the following day, Saturday, November 27th. Timing to be announced. Keep checking this page for the latest info.

Please make sure that your credit card details are up to date prior to the stock going online to make sure the items are still available when you’re ready to check out.

Be advised that our online queuing system allows you to shop for 20 minutes once you've made it onto the website.
Enjoy! - this is a day to celebrate great music and great record shops, so even with all the guidelines, we hope you’ll find the release(s) you’ve been patiently waiting for, and as with all record purchases, they deliver a joy for decades to come!
