It’s nearly that time again! We are currently less than two weeks away from everyone’s favorite music holiday – Record Store Day!! The Groove is very excited to announce our festivities for the day, as we celebrate with independent record stores across the nation and abroad!!
Our doors will open at 10am sharp on Saturday, April 20th to hundreds of limited edition RSD-exclusive releases. Please note – in an effort to be fair to all customers – all RSD releases will be first come, first served, no RSD titles may be put on hold, and all RSD titles are limited to (1) one copy of any given title per customer. Many of this years releases are extremely limited and this effort helps ensure that others may also get items on their list…
A full list of all official RSD 2013 releases (including artwork and descriptions) can be viewed here:
This year our backyard stage will kick off at 11:30 with an amazing list of performers including DeRobert & The Half-Truths, Tristen, Forget Cassettes, Cooper, Penicillin Baby, Western Medication, Chrome Pony and more to come!
We will also have a special meet-n-greet with Sam Fogarino (Interpol) and Duane Denison (Jesus Lizard, Tomahawk) of EmptyMansions – whose album “Snakes / Vultures / Sulfate” will be available for purchase on RSD!!
