Brooklyn’s Co-Op 87 Records to be open for the entire 24 hours of Record Store Day

New Yorkers get to celebrate Record Store Day early this Saturday, as Greenpoint’s Co-Op 87 Records will open at exactly midnight on April 21st and will close at exactly 11:59 pm that night.

WHAT IS THIS MADNESS?!

I had the pleasure of visiting said establishment over the weekend, and the cozy shop houses an excellent selection of new and used LPs, expertly curated by Mike Sniper (whom you may also know as Blank Dogs), Benjamin Steidel (currently on tour with his band Lemonade), and Mike Catalano.

Between the three, their credits include “running the local record label Captured Tracks, as well as formerly operating shops like Academy Records in Brooklyn. . . Using taste and experience they’ve warped the space into a true record buying destination. Co-Op 87 is a sweet addition to an ever growing neighborhood, filled with an oasis of handpicked vinyl ranging from all genres and time.”

Besides being able to buy those limited edition Record Store Day releases a few hours earlier than anywhere else, you can take advantage of another special promotion the store is running for those vinyl junkies who are “tuff enuff.”

THE 24 HOURS OF POWER SALE

“IF you are tuff enuff to come to Co-Op 87 Records ONCE an hour, EVERY hour of Record Store Day (24 visits!) and spend $10 on a record (not multiple records) at least ONCE for EACH of those hours, you’ll be entitled to an INCREASING percentage off, starting at 4% and increasing BY 4% each time on ANY one record UP to $100! That means he or she who braves this madness could by the final hour, buy ANY $100 or less record for a WHOPPING 96% off!”

Additionally…

ALL DOLLAR RECORDS BUY ONE GET ONE FREE!

Get ready to buy some wax.
