Your Montreal guide to Record Store Day Drops 2020


With the ongoing social distancing measures in place and concerns around the coronavirus, it was announced in April that the 2020 edition of Record Store Day (RSD) will take place in the form of "RSD Drops" over the course of 3 days: August 29, September 26, and October 24.

The idea is still to celebrate independent brick and mortar record stores, their owners, employees, customers, as well as the artists behind the vinyl albums but, this year, in a way that is safe for everyone.
