DISTRO CLEARANCE SALE!!! - Everythign 50% Off!
December 6, 2013
The time has come to thin out the proverbial herd. I have a lot of backstock distro shit and it needs to move. I want to focus more on OBVN releases and less on operating a distro for a little while. I am in no means closing the label or the distro, I just need to move some stock. I don't run a huge operation here, but this is a chance to get some quality shit dirt cheap. Lots of CDs and LPs to snag for next to nothing. The distro has slowed down immensely in the last few months, and I'm at least partly to blame; my work schedule does not provide me ample time to promote the label as I should and sales have been affected by it. I'd like to work on getting some new OBVN releases out and the distro stuff is just gathering dust. Act fast, I'm not sure how quickly stuff will move or how long I will run the sale. Spread this like AIDS.
The prices will not be changed in the store, but upon checkout click "apply discount code" and enter the code OBVNREDUX and the discount will be taken. Please EMAIL US with any questions.
