I almost grabbed one of the Devo posters from the Avon store for you just in case you didn't get one.

I got the last copy of the David Bazan live CD and the last one of the Weezer EP at the Avon store about 20 minutes after they opened.  Also scored an autographed Less Than Jake poster and a bunch of other free crap (Autographed jacket for The Almost CD, another copy of the Weezer 7 inch for someone else, and some shirts for the kids)

I struck out on getting The Get Up Kids EP.  (It's on iTunes, but I really wanted the disc.)

We got the Peter Gabriel/Stephin Merritt single.    We didn't find The Mountain Goats at any  of the stores we visited but my wife's friend was able to get one for us in St. Louis.

We had the poster here too but I gave it to people that didn't get the 12'. We didn't get any of the Get Up Kids. It looks like none of the stores got it.

The Get Up Kids have a limited number of the EP available on their website.  (It's also on iTunes if you don't care about actually owning the disc.)

I'm still partial to actually owning a disc in case my PC decides to do something really stupid before any of my backups are run. Plus I like having the jacket to flip through.

Yeah that stream is not really live. Also they seem to have retracted the 50% discount during the stream. The blog post was edited.

I love Record Store Day! Last year was my first. And this past Black Friday, they had a black Friday RSD, where I got (among other things) the rare and (now) expensive U2 EP Wide Awake in Europe. ;D

There's really nothing I'm interested in this year so I don't know if I'll go or not.

Thanks!  I will let you know. MrTorso's store should have 2 copies but I don't think I am brave enough to take a trip into the city with both kids on my own.

Neat.  Now we just need to remember this in 5 months.  At least it probably won't get knocked to the next page by then.
