Record Store Day at Grimey's! Saturday, April 18th 10am-8pm
We are jazzed to announce our plans for this year's Record Store Day! This is the 8th RSD and Grimey's is proud to have participated in every one since the very first year. Here's what we've got going on this year...
Both stores will open at 10am. All of the Record Store Day releases will be at Grimey's Too, right next door to Grimey's. We should have everything that's on the official list and some that are not. If you want to line up or camp out to get in line for the RSD releases, please form line in the alley behind Grimey's and The Basement. Our Frothy Monkey pals will show up around 6:30am to move the line to the deck and start serving fresh hot coffee and breakfast burritos to the faithful, so save your appetite and thirst, no need to walk and get crappy gas station coffee & snacks. We'll have a DJ on the deck while you wait and later on Frothy will be hosting an all-day party on the deck with a grill offering Bratwurst and all beef dogs along with veggie skewers. There will be DJs spinning vinyl and guest instrumentalists throughout the day. We'll also be joined by Hattie B's hot chicken and Crankees Pizzeria food truck to spice things up. We'll have our biggest sidewalk sale yet with thousands of $1 records & CDs. Local low power/high voltage radio start-up WXNA, local info site Do615 and analog recording gurus Welcome To 1979 will join in on the fun and there will be the usual table of free RSD swag and other goodies plus chances to win tons of free concert tickets and other cool prizes throughout the day. Details on the contests are here
We've got a full afternoon of live music in the back lot behind Grimey's, beginning at noon. I'm stoked to announce that our special surprise guest is one of my favorite rock bands of the '90s, and all time really - JON SPENCER BLUES EXPLOSION!!! They will play at 3:30 here and then they have a show later in the evening at Mercy Lounge. Don't miss this incredibly exciting band. They are one of the best live acts of all time (if you like to rock). Come out for a free taste and then don't miss the full assault later at Mercy. All the live sets are free and all ages. Here's the time line for live performances:

Halestorm will meet fans and sign their new record "Into The Wild Life" after their live performance. You must purchase the new album on vinyl or CD at Grimey's to get a wristband to get in the meet & greet line. We are already selling it and wristbands are available now but don't worry, this is a new release not a limited RSD thing and we have plenty of stock. If you can't make it by until Saturday we'll have it available then but I encourage you to come on by and get your wristband earlier if you can. There may be a line at check out on this very busy day and you don't want to miss anything.
Thanks to Keith Brogdon for the kick-ass poster design! We'll have t-shirts featuring his art for sale on Record Store Day as well, in all sizes.
Ok, the part I don't like talking about... We're looking at the same forecast as you. It's been looking like rain on Saturday for days but today the forecast became more favorable. So pray or wish really hard or do the voodoo that you do to bestow a nice, dry day upon us. If it does rain, the bands will play inside the Basement and we'll cancel the sidewalk sale and deck party. We'll still have all the amazing RSD exclusive releases inside Grimey's Too and we'll find places for our community partners but it will be a significantly scaled-down event. And that does not rock, but we'll make it all happen the best we can.
See you Saturday!
