Black Friday 2016!

On Black Friday, November 25th, independent music retailers across the country, including MadCity Music Exchange, will be offering exclusive, made-for-that-day products.  The final list of exclusives is available right here!  We expect to have most of the releases in stock, but due to limited availability, we will not be taking any pre-orders or holding any items.

In addition to offering the exclusive Black Friday releases, we also will be holding our semi-annual Collectible Vinyl Sale!  All of the rare gems we’ve been keeping under lock and key will be available for your shopping enjoyment.  Special this year, there will be a large selection of Mobile Fidelity Audiophile LPs — everything from Abba to Zappa as well as gems from many different genres — hitting the floor for the first time!

And, we will have another 800+ new used LPs on the floor and ready for new homes!

To give you more time to shop the Black Friday releases and collectible vinyl, we will be opening early at 9 a.m.  Thank you for shopping local this holiday season!

Of course, we’ll be closed all day on Thursday November 24th due to turkey.
