    Hey @Mather @DeadwaxDude @BjorgenFjorgen and all other Toronto friends,

    I've never done RSD before, but there are 3 records I want so I guess I'm gonna have to. Anyone a) have experience with it in T.dot and know where to go and where to avoid and b) anyone want to coordinate either meeting up or dividing and conquering for maximum score chances?

    I only went to Sonic Boom last year, immediately found the two things I wanted, and got in line. It was pretty packed but I figured it would be the best chance to find lower-quantity releases.

    I'm definitely down either to meet up or swap some lists and look out for each other. So far I think I only want one 7", haha.

    I've gone to June the last 2 years and have found everything I want, small line, best prices, cool people. Will do it again this year! :D

    I'll add that I think Kops opens at 9am, and June at 11am. So I'll probably take chances with both! @BjorgenFjorgen you're a trooper, if seen that sonic boom line.. It's intimidating ;)

    Yeah, good call. I'm going to check in with them to make sure they have the Tom Waits shit. Sonic Boom opens earlier though, might be worth hitting one then the other.

    Yeah, June is always cool and transparent with that stuff. I'm sure if you call and even just request it, you'd be more likely to see it there come RSD.

    Man, I don't know what to do on Saturday.

    If I don't get these Tom Waits records I will actually die.

    Just called June, they said they have them on order but no guarantee they'l get them. I asked if they usually have a line, and I got laughed at (lol). They did tell me, though, that since they don't open early on RSD, they tend to be a last stop on people's agenda, so maybe better chance that people already got what they wanted elsewhere?

    I really don't want to line up at Sonic Boom for 3 hours...

    Im still undecided if I'll go this year, nothing really standing out that I want. But if I go, I'll be going to June 40 mins before open like last year, line was not big.

    What's the weather supposed to be like? Winter or Summer?

    Edit: 10c and mainly sunny. I can line up for a bit.

    I was just reminded I've got an engagement party of sorts to attend near Barrie on Saturday afternoon. So in the event that I do get up and out of the house on time, I'll do my best to keep an eye out for anything on your lists at whichever shop I end up at (possibly just Kops on Bloor, but hopefully also Sonic Boom).

    This is what I was told when I went to June the other day. My plan is probably Dead Dog which opens at 9 and then June at 11am

    There's a full list of what June ordered in if you guys haven't seen it.. Still undecided if I'll go this year. Only thing that popped out to me is a California Regional exclusive.. Lol.

    I'm in line at Dead Dog, should be opening any minute. Probably 25 people in line. As soon as I'm done here. I'm going to head to June. Lemme know if there's anything anyone needs.

    I didn't see it. Went to Kops on Bloor after Dead Dog and it was really disappointing - 2 crates of RSD items, that's it. I drove past June after that, and the line was too long for me to bother with given that I got everything I wanted. So I'm out with 5 records today.

    I'm super pissed at Dead Dog, though. I paid $49.99 each for the 3 Tom Waits records. Kops had them for $37.99 each.

    Yeah, this is my first RSD and I think I'll be sitting these out. It's like a giant cash grab, I can't stand that sort of wild west pricing shit.
