Since its inception, Black Friday has turned the day after Thanksgiving into the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season. Traditionally, Black Friday has been about super-cheap prices on mass-produced goods and primarily takes place in malls and big box stores. But we really like the idea of a shopping season, especially when that shopping is all about, at its heart, a way to show the people you like that you like them. (And a way for them to show you, too. Gift-GETTING is also awesome!)
Mellow Matt’s Music and More work year-round to shine a light on the independent, big label and local musicians producing the music that make you happy, make you smile, make you sing, bring you comfort, bring people together (with proper safety protocols in place, of course!). This year that has felt more important than ever, as local businesses of all kinds face unprecedented challenges, and we’ve been so happy to see how you’ve all supported them. Everything you find in a Mellow Matt’s would make a great gift for someone, so in this year when the holiday season may be a little strange, but also a little special, and it may feel even better to wrap up and give a little something to someone, helping Mellow Matt’s be a part of that ‘shopping season’ makes more sense to us than ever.
There are artists, labels, managers and distribution companies who feel the same, and the official Record Store Day folks have put together a list of titles for that season that will be available at Mellow Matt’s. They come out on Black Friday (this year 11/27) but may be available at record stores throughout the rest of the year, because record stores are the best place to go with a Holiday Wish List.
