Happy Thanksgiving From Grimey's!
Black Friday has traditionally been a big shopping day for the big boxes, corporate retailers and the like and I understand some resistance to joining the conspicuous consumption fray. But in years past, small local businesses like independent record stores would twiddle our thumbs while shoppers raced to be first in line at the mall. Five years ago, the fine folks at Record Store Day came up with the idea to expand the concept of the big day in April and offer special, limited vinyl goodies on Black Friday too, albeit a smaller slate with holiday-themed releases in the mix. And now we have shoppers lined up at our doors on Black Friday too. So even if you're the kind of independent-minded consumer who usually sits this day out, I hope you'll consider supporting your local record store on either Black Friday or the next day - Small Business Saturday.
Grimey's will open at 10am this Friday, November 27th, and the Record Store Day Black Friday exclusives will be at Grimey's Too. Line forms in front of Grimey's Too, at the entrance to the deck heading into the Frothy Monkey coffee shop. Frothy Monkey will open at 7AM to serve hot beverages and breakfast to those in line but you must be in line to enter the store at 10am to shop the Black Friday selections. The weather is looking good so we hope to see all your eager, bright mugs on Friday morning! There are tons of cool vinyl releases from The Arcs, B-52s, Beck, Big Star, Bowie, Johnny Cash, The Clash, Phil Collins, Dave Matthews, Deerhoof, Garbage, Green Day, Ben Harper, Houndmouth, Howlin' Wolf, Jeff Buckley, John Malkovich, Kinks, Paul McCartney, Megadeth, MGMT, Nine Inch Nails, Elvis, PUJOL, Queen, Otis Redding, The Sonics, Spoon, Sunn O))), Stevie Ray Vaughan, Brian Wilson and so many more! See the whole list here.
The day after Black Friday is Small Business Saturday. Have you seen this amazing video from Jason Isbell?!?! Thanks to Jason for all his support over the years. It's been a pleasure helping you get your records out to the people.
I hope you'll join us this Saturday, November 28th, for our celebration of Small Business Saturday. We're throwing an all-day party with free beer courtesy of Black Abbey Brewing here in Nashville and we'll have a live performance by Marcus King Band at 5PM. The show is free and all ages. You'll have to be 21 or older to get the free beer however. See more details about Marcus King here. He's a monster guitar slinger in the Warren Haynes/Derek Trucks mold and we hope you'll come out and rock with us.
Even with all the Black Friday releases there are still more new releases for Friday. We've got fresh ones from Bjork, They Might Be Giants, Danzig, Ty Segall, The Flaming Lips, Mogwai; reissues from Al Green, Love, Jethro Tull; vinyl from Parquet Courts, Merchandise feat Dum Dum Girls, Mike Watt, Au Pair, Boy & Bear, Melanie Martinez, Dean & Britta, Over The Rhine, William Onyeabor and tons more, all detailed below.
