Record Store Day 2016 Update

This Saturday, April 16th marks the return of Record Store Day and The Groove is very excited to announce what we have in store this year!

 We will be opening our doors at 10am sharp to a slew of exclusive RSD titles (a full list of official RSD releases can be viewed here).  Please note that – in an effort to be fair to all customers – all RSD releases will be first-come, first-served (no holds) and all RSD releases are limited to 1 copy of any given title per customer.  As in years past, many of these titles are extremely limited and this policy helps ensure that other customers are also able to receive the titles they want most.

 We’ll have a store-wide sale going inside The Groove — offering 15% off all merchandise, new and used!  In addition, Brainfreeze Comics will also have 10% off all inventory throughout the day.  Please note that our 15% off sale excludes RSD releases, consignment items and items already on sale…  Outside, we’ll also have plenty of sale records and CDs for your digging pleasure!

Outside, Mas Tacos will be on site with everyone’s favorite taco truck, we’ll have plenty of tasty local brews (21+) provided by Blackstone Brewing Co. plus gourmet popsicles available from King Of Pops !!  Local non-profits WXNA FM and Yeah!(Youth Empowerment through Arts & Humanities) will also be hanging out throughout the day, as well as multiple local vendors.

We also have a full afternoon of live music planned for our backyard stage – schedule is as follows:


12:30 – 1:00:  Dudette (of Southern Girls Rock Camp)
1:15 – 1:45:  Soft Bodies
2:00 – 2:30:   Lasso Spells
2:45 – 3:15:  Ornament
3:30 – 4:00:  Big Surr
4:15 – 4:45:  Promised Land Sound
5:00 – 5:30:  Sun Seeker
5:45 – 6:15:  HeCTA

 As always, we’ll have plenty of RSD swag, give-aways and raffles throughout the day – including autographed items, vinyl test pressings, concert tickets & prize packs!  We’re also teaming up with Dino’s to give away a turntable to one lucky customer!
We’re really looking forward to celebrating with all of you this Saturday… See ya soon!!
