Brooklyn Vegan has a good rundown of other record store events happening in North Brooklyn:

Down the street at Halcyon (74 Wythe Ave), they’ll open at 10 AM with a selection of RSD19 exclusives, an “extended selection of used records,” and a full roster of DJs. Details are here.

Heading further north, Academy Records Annex in Greenpoint (85 Oak St) will open at 10 AM and will have lots of RSD19 exclusives. As usual, they’ll have coffee (and maybe donuts?) in the morning for those waiting in line and sometimes there’s beer in the afternoon once the mayhem has died down. They’ll also have in-store performances in the afternoon, details TBA. Also: if you need a change of pace, the NYC Hot Sauce Expo is happening this weekend, right around the corner at the Brooklyn Expo Center.

Other Brooklyn spots: the just-opened Brooklyn Record Exchange in the Elsewhere building in Bushwick won’t have any RSD titles but they will be breaking out a stash of choice used records they’ve been holding onto for a while, and they’ll have DJs all day. Normal hours: noon to 9 PM.

Earwax in Williamsburg (167 N. 9th) will open at 10:30 AM, and Captured Tracks in Greenpoint (195 Calyer) will open at 10 AM and both will have a selection of RSD titles. Record Grouch in Greenpoint (986 Manhattan Ave) is actually carrying RSD exclusives (they’ve been stocking selective RSD-official stuff for the last few years), along with tons of boxes of $1 records.
