Grimey's Says Hey! - Week of September 16


Thanks to everyone who came out last week during Americana Fest! We had a stellar week and so many memorable moments: Steelism blowing minds as registrants streamed in to pick up their credentials on Tuesday; Galadrielle Allman sharing stories of her dad Duane and then bringing Lee Roy Parnell & Bonnie Bramlett to perform some slide-soaked country blues; Holly George-Warren reading from her excellent Alex Chilton bio and then Jody Stephens, William Tyler and Will Kimbrough performing Chilton-linked songs and Big Star tunes with the extra treat of William Tyler's parents sharing their personal Alex Chilton stories from their long history as friends of the man; Robyn Hitchcock bringing Grant Lee-Phillips and Emma Swift for his intimate and stellar in-store performance; then all the great artists who joined us on Saturday for Americanarama VII. Did you see the Rolling Stone piece? Check it out here. Out of all the hundreds of performances over the week, they pick the 20 best things they saw and 2 of them were from our Saturday back-lot party! And I got my first-ever photo credit anywhere on Rolling Stone's website for sending them a pic of Mike Farris taking us to church Saturday. Now THAT'S Americana!

CASSETTE STORE DAY is this Saturday, September 27th! We're throwing a party on the Grimey's Too deck at noon with R. Stevie Moore and Mystery Twins performing (they both have cassettes out that day) and Pimp Daddy Supreme rocking a DJ cassette set on the decks, on the deck. We'll have a whole bunch of exclusive tapes. Check more details below, including a link to see the whole list of cassette releases and I hope to see you this Saturday. 

After we rock it on the deck, Heaven's Jail will join us for a set in Grimey's proper at 5pm, during BEER:30. We also add in-stores with Hamilton Leithauser (from The Walkmen) on Tuesday, Sept 30 at 5pm and Marc Ford on Saturday, October 4th at 5pm.

It's a HUGE new release day with fresh ones from Tweedy, Bonnie Prince Billy, Leonard Cohen, Goat, The Growlers, Alt-J, Julian Casablancas, King Tuff, Aphex Twin, The Drums, Whirr, Lee Ann Womack, Gary Clark Jr, Chuck Prophet and so many more; reissues of George Harrison's solo albums (on CD) and the Smashing Pumpkins "Adore"; a new Peter Buck 7", reissues of the earliest Fleetwood Mac Peter Green-era albums on vinyl, a slew of titles on vinyl from Mississippi Records and so much more, all detailed on the new releases page.
