We’ll be opening at 8am!  No waiting outside once the doors are open!

Free gift bags packed with cool stuff – while supplies last!

Look for 900+ new used LPs will be out for sale! Featuring many collectible LPs!

 Your chance to enter to win new vinyl & CDs, concert tickets, gift cards, prize packs, and much more from these great local and independent businesses: High Noon Saloon, Underground Butcher, Ragstock, True Endeavors, Stalzy’s Deli, Star Liquor, The Barrymore Theatre, & Just Coffee Cooperative!



We are proud to carry on the tradition of presenting great bands for free on Record Store Day!  This year we’ll have two great local acts playing next door at Bandung’s “The Nutty Bar”!  Show starts at 1:30 pm with the jangle-pop of Jonesies.  Then, at 2:30, it’s the dub-fueled post-punk of Control.  Also, WORT DJs will be spinning tunes in between bands all afternoon.  Both shows are free and presented by Tone Madison and 89.9 WORT!

Speaking of Bandung, they’ll be opening early at noon and serving a select lunch menu and drinks.  So, after you’ve enjoyed the RSD festivities at MadCity, you can continue the fun with a delicious Indo-Style Bloody Mary, the legendary “Nutty Coconut”, rail mixers, a $2 tall boy, fabulous food and great music!


The Smart Studios Story  is the OFFICIAL FILM of RECORD STORE DAY 2016.

…And, MadCity Music Exchange is proud to welcome Butch Vig and Steve Marker to celebrate on Record Store Day, April 16! Butch and Steve will be hanging out in the afternoon and giving away a promotional cassette created just for Record Store Day.  The cassette, a collaboration with Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, captures over a dozen early, independent songs recorded at Smart Studios in the 1980s. MadCity will be one of only two stores in the country where Butch and Steve will be personally handing out the cassettes! Available while they last, but they won’t last long!
