our third RECORD STORE DAY DROPS 2020 event...

Stacks Image 12060
>RSD DROPS: RECORD STORE DAY(S) 2020 @ LUNA music:
OCTOBER EDITION
SATURDAY, 24 OCTOBER 2020

beginning at 1:00PM EST
ONLINE ONLY!

WE APOLOGIZE. THE STOREFRONT IS STILL CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC...
Folks, it has become abundantly clear that the COVID-19 virus will still be raging thru the state as we approach this THIRD of three RSD DROPS. So, to keep our customers and crew safe, we've made the difficult decision to have this event be online only.
PLEASE NOTE:
-You can still select
LOCAL PICK-UP for your RSD DROPS order. (We will be working hard filling orders inside the shop and will set up a special no-contact pick-up spot, outside the shop that day. PLEASE WEAR YOUR MASK, please keep 6' apart.) Or, you can have your order shipped USPS, if you'd like. This is also a great time to tell you we've added over 9000 fresh titles to shop.lunamusic.net!
-Of course, you can order as many RSD DROPS TITLES as you'd like—but only
one copy of each title, per customer. (Multiple orders will be cancelled.)

WHAT TO EXPECT ON 24 OCTOBER 2020 AT LUNA music:
-ALL RSD DROPS titles will go live on shop.lunamusic.net at 1:00PM EST—we won't be taking reservations or handing out line numbers—it's all online, beginning at 1:00PM EST!
-
Rusty Redenbacher will be spinning a two-hour set while you wait to pick-up your RSD titles—this time out, he'll be blowing your mind with a 120 minute set of his own brand of 'Sidewalk Soul'.
-
A good time, during wacky times.

As always, THANK YOU supporting our locally-owned business for over 25 years!
We hope to see you on the 24th!


>>>WE CANNOT WAIT FOR THE DAY TO ROLL OUT THE RED CARPET AND WELCOME YOU ALL BACK IN THE SHOP, AFTER THIS PANDEMIC IS UNDER CONTROL!

>Matt Berninger - Serpentine Prison (INDIE Store Exclusive—Translucent Sea Blue LP) - VINYL LP
After a series of stand-alone singles and a release under the moniker EL VY (with Brent Knopf of Menomena), Serpentine Prison is the first solo record from GRAMMY-Award winning artist Matt Berninger of The National.

Long ago, a recurring theme was to weave a thread thru...

Oh, never mind—this iteration of a long-running joke between Nat Russell and myself finally took a beautiful, surreal, evolution when Justin Shimp (of
BrainTwins) began sprinkling the image in the LUNA music analog times #1. The rest is history?

And just like John Waters'-'Role Models' paper edition of his hilarious book—we thoughtfully printed this on the brightest, most absorbent, white T we could find...

MONTHLY D.J. SET / SOUL VIBRATION SESSION
"Movers & Groovers,
My family and friends at LUNA music in Indianapolis host my monthly DJ event the
Soul Vibration Session. I love this event and it is one of my favorite moments of my month. With the rise and spread of COVID-19, Luna has closed the storefront to the public but they are still shipping music and other goodies to customers! Hit them up and get your music and music accessories game tight.
This mix is my monthly 4-hour DJ session. I recorded this at my home base and ran through a range of tunes just like I would if I was at LUNA. You can listen to it right here and it will also be sent out on my podcast channel. Enjoy it freely and share it freely as well. I hope y’all are living well outchea in these wild times. I love you all.
The P.E.A.C.E."—Mr. Kinetik
