LOGAN SQUARE — The Pilsen-based record label, Numero Group, will once again "pop up" at Comfort Station Logan Square to commemorate Record Store Day.

Numero Group, which specializes in re-releasing classic soul and folk tracks, will house its one-day pop-up shop at 2579 N. Milwaukee Ave., from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

This will be the second year Numero Group comes to the Comfort Station.

"The space is the perfect size to allow us to spread out the Numero items and also allow the Numero staff and a few select friends to sell off some of our old used records as well," Numero Group's Dustin Drase said in an email Thursday.

"The location is also great because it's not too far from the many wonderful record stores in the city, making it exceptionally easy to stop by our pop-up and say hello, without having to miss out on all the awesome insanity of hitting up multiple stores on Record Store Day," Drase said.

In addition to all Numero's regular releases, the pop-up will feature special Record Store Day releases, such as a cassette collaboration with Dark Matter Coffee, new Dinosaur Jr. and South Side Story releases and an exclusive limited-to-500 Ned Doheny 45 available only to Numero's gold subscribers or those who stop by the pop-up shop.

Drase said there will also be plenty of "blowout" deals, too, including a large selection of what he called "dinger copies."

"They may not be pristine enough for collectors, but if you're cool with a slightly smooshed corner and massive savings, then these otherwise perfect records are the right match for you," he said.

Record Store Day has been celebrated the third Saturday of April since 2007 "as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding more than 700 independently owned record stores in the U.S. and thousands of similar stores internationally," according to the official Record Store Day website.
