Real Groovy turns thirty three and a third
"LP records spin at 33 1/3 rpm and on Saturday November 22nd Real Groovy turns 33 and a 1/3rd years old. In a year where the vinyl revival is stronger than ever we're celebrating our 33 1/3 rd birthday with a very special day in-store by:
1. Releasing A Day In My Mind's Mind, a double LP compilation of seminal NZ Pop/Psych from the late 60's, early 70's, all lovingly remastered for vinyl, in a gatefold sleeve with expansive liner notes detailing the time and place and history.
2. Presenting live in-store performances from four of the original vocalists featured on the album, backed by local retro rockers The Situations.
3. Offering on limited edition vinyl for the first time the chart-topping debut album We Rise from powerhouse Hamilton rock act, Devilskin, along with the new Live at the Powerstation CD+DVD set.
4. Welcoming Devilskin to perform a short live set.
5. Gathering together a handful of our favourite people to DJ and keep the party going.
Come out and see us on Saturday 22nd November at 438 Queen Street from 9am to 7pm and help us celebrate this numerical coincidence
