Upcoming In-Store Happenings
In-Stores are all free and all ages, always. Come rock with us!
MARTY STUART - Monday, September 29th @ 6PM
Oh my gawd! Marty Stuart is finally going to grace us with an in-store performance! It's been on our wishlist for a long time and now Marty and his Fabulous Superlatives have a brand new record coming on Sept 30 called "Saturday Night/Sunday Morning", 2 discs divided into the rough-hewn Saturday night jams and Sunday morning Cathedral jams. Mavis Staples even guests! If you were to give country music an address, you might say it's at the corner of sacred and profane, two doors up from the blues and folk, and just across the street from gospel, R&B and rock 'n' roll. And on a deeper emotional and spiritual level, it resides where Saturday night meets Sunday morning. No one understands these coordinates better than Marty Stuart. For over forty years, the five-time Grammy winning multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, photographer and historian has been building a rich legacy at this very crossroads. On his latest release with his band The Fabulous Superlatives, the double-disc Saturday Night & Sunday Morning, Stuart captures all the authentic neon and stained-glass hues of country music from love and sex to heartache and hardship to family and God in twenty-three tracks. Don't miss this one, folks.
HAMILTON LEITHAUSER - Tuesday, September 30th @ 5PM
Long-time Grimey's people know how dear to our hear The Walkmen are. Our own staff formed a tribute band and played a set of Walkmen classics in the store a few years back, which led to them actually backing up Walkmen lead singer Hamilton Leithauser for "The Rat" at a Walkmen gig at The Basement. So we couldn't be more excited to have Hamilton come back and do a proper set in the store supporting his excellent solo debut "Black Hours"! Leithauser is in town to perform at The Ryman, opening for Broken Bells Monday night, Sept 29, and will do a spotlight solo set at Grimey's the next day at 5pm. Do not miss this, Walkmen fans!
MARC FORD - Saturday, October 4th @ 5PM
Marc Ford is a straight-up guitar monster, one of the brightest of his generation. He's probably best known for his years playing lead guitar in the Black Crowes but he's also led his own bands Neptune Blues Club and The Sinners; played on key records or tours by Govt. Mule, Izzy Stradlin, Booker T and Ben Harper; and produced artists such as the great roots-rocker Ryan Bingham and English country-soul talents Phantom Limb. Now Marc has a solo record out called "Holy Ghost" that's not so much a re-invention as a deepening of his talents, with liberal use of pedal steel, Fender Rhodes, mellotron and banjo, and the best songwriting of Ford's career. Join us during BEER:30 on a Saturday afternoon in the record store and rock with us, won't you?
