Waterloo Records on Record Store Day (more by Tim Griffin)
As you may have heard, this Saturday (4/20) is Record Store Day. Head to BrooklynVegan to see a list of some of our picks from the myriad #RSD13 exclusives, and head to a record store on Saturday to pick some up.
Yes, Records Store Day is right around the corner and we want everyone to be as prepared as possible in order to get the exclusive releases that they are excited about. We [Waterloo Records] have ordered up on all the releases on "THE LIST". These are all made in limited quantities and what we receive will be all we get in most cases. Remember these titles are being distributed between independent record stores all over the country, so some quanities may be extremely limited.Good luck and have fun!
We will open at 10am on Record Store Day (4/20). In years past people have begun lining up as early as 6am! Like in the past, the line will begin at our south entrance and wrap around the south side of the building along 6th street (towards Amy's Ice Cream), then down Baylor Ave. We will hold the line of people from entering the store once we reach our store capacity then continue to let people in as others leave. This is for your safety and for a better shopping experience.
Chelsea Light Moving @ Mohawk (more by Chad Wadsworth)
Thurston Moore's new band Chelsea Light Moving, who finished up their tour in Boston tonight (4/7), visited Austin for SXSW. While in town they played "House of Vans" at Mohawk, in Waterloo Records' parking lot, and inside Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop for KEXP. You can watch live video from the latter, and a video of Thurston talking about how much he loves Waterloo (where you can stop by on Record Store Day to pick up a limited Thurston Moore & Loren Connors release), below...
Shirley Manson of Garbage @ Waterloo Records on 4/21
Happy Record Store Day! Though they postponed their Austin and Houston shows, Garbage (minus Duke Erickson - who flew home for a medical emergency) still made their Austin in-store appearance for Record Store Day at Waterloo Records on Saturday (4/21). The band didn't perform, but 300+ people lined up and got special wristbands for the signing, while regular customers, many there to pick up some of the exclusive RSD releases, shopped and took pictures.
More pictures from the event below...

WATERS @ Webster Hall recently (more by Chris La Putt)
Waterloo Records, who are celebrating 30 years (!), are housing another slew of free, in-store special events this month and beyond, including obligatory Record Store Day festivities.
Rising from the ashes of his band Port O'Brien, folkster Van Pierszalowski's latest project WATERS is set to play Waterloo this evening (4/13) at 5pm before opening for Delta Spirit at Emo's East.
In addition to all the rare goodies you'll have a chance to buy on Record Store day next Saturday (4/21), Waterloo is hosting an appearance by Garbage that afternoon, where the band will be meeting with fans and signing autographs, potentially making that exclusive Record Store Day Garbage 7-inch of their new album's first single, "Blood For Poppies," extra special. The band will also play a sold out gig at La Zona Rosa later that night as part of their current tour.
Austin's own rabble-rousers Heartless Bastards will also perform a free in-store act at the record shop on Wednesday, April 25, but not before they play La Zona Rosa on April 20. Check HERE for more HB tour dates and live pics.
