Keepin it normal in pandemic-land is no joke. Especially when RSD Drop2 is this SATURDAY, SEPT. 26th. We open at 11am! We love Record Store Day, but we love you more.

Did we have fun “Sittin’ It Out” for RSD DROP1? Yup. So, uh, we’ve decided to keep things low-key again for DROP2 this Saturday. Horizon will be open from 11am-7pm. For health and safety reason we’re striving to “Keep It as everyday Normal” as possible to avoid the large volume of people/lines the event brings, due to current events we gotta play it safe for your sake and ours.

To help our regulars we will likely have some modest quantities of RSD titles on Saturday in the regular racks, and the week following. Keep an eye on our Facebook and webstore, and come see us!

We still have mountains of new and pre-loved platters and CDs  here for you all weekend, so stop by or hit up our webstore at https://shop.horizonrecords.net/Home! We are just busy every day being the best Horizon Records we can be, for you and for us too. We are striving to keep things as normal as possible as we roll through these crazy times.

Remember, we’re just as interested in keeping you, and us, safe as we are in slingin’ the music you love so much. So as we get closer to Drop2 on Sept. 26th, check this space for updates, and peruse this sample list of Drop2 highlights we’re excited about!
