Surely you heard about the Numero Group wholesale sensation that was sweeping the nation last week? We had a great time in the warehouse, cracking jokes and blasting Grateful Dead bootlegs. We were visited in person by a couple cool customers and contacted by hundreds more via the world wide web. Unless you were aggressively refreshing your browser, you might have missed some of these magical Numero Group Moving Sale moments.
1.) We asked for your Grateful Dead bootlegs and you listened:
We got lots of awesome emails to folks who seemed willing to part with their tape collections, due in part to mentions by @JamBase and the folks at @SoundOpinions. This in particular was pretty funny.
Keep ’em coming! We need a miracle EVERYDAY.
As is customary, Numero Group A&R Jon Kirby draws crap on whatever packages he happens to see headed to his home state of North Carolina. Being old pals with Merge Records recording artist Stuart McLamb of the Love Language, everything you see above happened organically. Stay tuned for that lovelorn biker psych magnum opus, already in progress.
3.) These tiny twins clapped along to the warehouse music for damn near an hour and it was awesome.
It was as cute as you might presume.
4.) People made use of the comments field in their order form.
5.) Most people dug our Compton archives, a few people simply wanted to highlight omissions.
6.) We kind of goofed on the flyer, and as a result, Monday was one of the biggest days of the sale. Thanks to everyone for helping making our move a little easier!
