Grimey's Says Hey! - Week of November 18


Lots of killer releases hitting the racks this week with fresh ones from TV On The Radio, Ariel Pink, Bryan Ferry, the Thompson clan (Richard, Linda, Teddy, et al), Manchester Orchestra and more; a packed-to-the-gills rarities box set from Wilco along with a standard best-of for good measure, plus reissues and vault packages from David Bowie, Captain Beefheart, Robert Wyatt, Brian Eno, Fugazi, The Old 97's and The Rolling Stones; a Christmas single from Sharon Jones, a phat box of Bruce Springsteen's classic catalog on remastered vinyl, vital vinyl reissues from Bratmobile, Swans, Father Yod and more!

We add a bunch of new tickets you can win this week, including free tickets to see Purple Rain this weekend at the Belcourt (it's playing Friday 11/21 & Saturday 11/22 and you can choose which show to see but original Revolution guitarist Dez Dickerson is introducing the movie on Friday night so keep that in mind!), plus tickets to see shows by Jonathan Richman, Trombone Shorty, Will Hoge, Chuck Mead, All Them Witches and GWAR! Check the Contests page details.

I'm not done with the cool stuff you could win! We're giving away a very rare Don Van Vliet print, all framed and beautiful! It's on display right now at Grimey's Too! Anytime between now and Friday, November 28th, drop by Grimey's Too & Howlin Books to check out the fantastic framed art print from Captain Beefheart's Sun Zoom Spark 1970 - 1972 (available as a 4 CD or limited edition 4 LP box set). This Don Van Vliet piece has never been issued as a print before now and on November 28th, Black Friday, we'll be giving it away to a lucky winner!  The only way to participate in the drawing is to stop by Grimey's Too and Howlin Books and fill out an entry.

We've been talking about Black Friday for a minute but we just upped the ante, adding a live in-store performance by Houndmouth at 4pm on November 28th! And it will be filmed and recorded. Also, Chuck Mead and Paul Burch will perform at 4pm the following day, Saturday November 29th, to celebrate their new split single on the Plowboy label!

I'd also like to point out 2 pre-order promotions we have running right now as well. You need to come into the store to pre-order these items in person (and so we can hand you the goodies!)

Preorder the new Smashing Pumpkins album "Monuments To An Elegy" on CD or LP, due out on December 9th, and receive a free copy of the "Monuments To An Elegy" CD sampler.

Preorder Marianne Faithfull new album "Give My Love To London" on LP, due out on December 9th, and receive a free copy of a postcard flexi single. (The CD edition of the album is available now.)
