If you’re in need of a vinyl fix and happen to be in Pittsburgh, around 2136 Murray Avenue to be exact, you can go check this out

Jerry’s Records at it again.

Record Store Day is too often about long queues and inflated exclusives. Not at Jerry’s though: the Pittsburgh record store will continue its annual tradition of subverting the festival with a mass vinyl giveaway.

Packed in closed boxes of 100, the shop plans to hand out a whopping total of 20,000 free albums this Saturday 16 April.

“It will be about two or three times what I usually give out,” owner Jerry Weber told Post-Gazette. “I want to clear out the Bargain Basement a little.”

The shop stocks over one million used vinyl records and oft ranks as one of the biggest record shops in the world. Its Bargain Basement section features 100,000 albums. Jerry plans to close that part of the store by the end of the year.

Located at 2136 Murray Avenue, the store will open 10am to 6pm on Saturday.
