Real Groovy Record Store Day!

Here’s what Real Groovy has planned for Record Store Day 2018…

Our customers have been celebrating Record Store Day with us for ten years! It’s the worldwide annual celebration of independent record stores, and Real Groovy is the biggest, and one of the longest running, corporate-free record stores in New Zealand.
This year it’s on Saturday the 21st of April, and and it’s going to be HUGE, with live music, giveaways, freebies and exclusive vinyl deals.

We’ll have some great exclusive VINYL DEALS (more to come soon, we’re keeping them under wraps in the meantime).
Thanks to Pro-Ject Turntables, we’ll be offering Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprits with Ortofon 2M Blue cartridges for just $999 ($240 off the standard retail price!), and one lucky customer will be taking one of these beasts home for FREE! This is the best bang-for-your-buck turntable deal we’ve ever offered!Our buddies from Vans Off the Wall are also going to be giving some lucky customers sweet new kicks to show off.

Not only are we lucky enough to have Swidt playing in-store on the day, we are also proud to be the exclusive retailers of Swidt’s limited edition Stoneyhunga: The Bootleg EP cassette tape that they’ll be releasing on the day. This epic EP has never been released on a physical format (and only 300 are going to be made), so you’d better be in early to get yourself one of these bad boys.

Live Bands!

12pm – Polyester

1pm – Bloodbags

2pm – Unsanitary Napkin (Wellington)

3pm – Wax Chattels

4pm – Swidt

As if everything wasn’t sounding amazing enough already, we’ve got some of our FAVOURITE companies helping us out on the day. Brothers Beer are going to be bringing in a tap bar and couches so you can lounge around with a frosty bevvy while you take a breather from crate digging. Atomic Coffee are going to be keeping everyone caffeinated and charging through the day – they’re sussing us out with a Coffee Caravan! Tom & Luke are giving away hundreds (literally) of their killer Snackaballs, Proper Crisps are bringing a ton of the best chips you’ll ever taste (is your stomach rumbling yet?) and Red Bull will be keeping you early birds awake! Plus Hapunan Filipino Cuisine and Otherside will be dishing up some of their finest dishes throughout the day!
