Seeing as vinyl is officially experiencing a major resurgence in popularity, there’s no better time to get to work on your collection.
Brooklyn Vegan shared the news that the geniuses behind Chicago’s much-celebrated Numero Group, a label that specializes in reissues, is bringing a huge pop-up shop to all 700 square feet of the Human Gallery (110 Meserole Ave. at Manhattan Ave.) in Greenpoint.
The event will take place from noon until 8pm on April 25, 26 and 27 and feature “thousands of LPs, 45s, and CDs that [Numero Group] found tucked away in a warehouse on Long Island.” That sounds pretty good, but the best news is that the pop-up shop seems like a primo spot to practice your haggling skills. “We’ll also be bringing tons of deleted items and damaged stock, selling it all at blow-out prices. We have no interest in trucking it back to Chicago,” the label says on their website.
If you’re not interested in damaged/used goods, Numero Group will also be slinging their own releases including two Record Store Day specials: an album featuring Dinosaur Jr.’s first four singles and a compilation of music from some of Chi-town’s forgotten soul acts. On top of that, attendees will be able to purchase records from the Cali-Tex, JR, Asterisk, and Numerophon labels if they’re so inclined while Numero co-founders Rob Sevier and Ken Shipley spin tunes.
Sounds like an all-around good time to us.
