FREAKY DEAKYS - Thursday, August 6th @ 6PM
Birmingham AL's Freaky Deakys are embarking on a late-summer tour and will be hitting Nashville on August 6. Freaky Deakys are a rad party band who blend psych, surf, R&B and punk. "If James Brown were born weird, white, and ugly he might choogle like the deakies. Surf-addled creepster boogie backed by the tightest nearly-underage rhythm section since The Swampers. Special guest influence by T. Rex brings a touch of the cosmic to taut jams, while singer Trevor Dane seems doomed to repeat Hasil Adkins' brilliantly deep misunderstanding of rock'n'roll." -Sweetman David Allen.
TED DROZDOWSKI'S SCISSORMEN at Grimey's Too - Thursday, August 13th @ 6PM
Ted Drozdowski has been a busy man of late. His hard-charging blues-rock trio The Scissormen are about to deliver their 6th album with a new, re-vamped lineup and sound. After literally studying at the feet of North Mississippi blues legend RL Burnside and leading a barn-burning blues duo for years, Drozdowski has a new vision. The new album "Love & Life" was recorded in a tent on top of a mountain in a hi-tech "green" studio that runs on less power than a hair dryer. The guitars are bigger and laden with day-glo effects, tectonic plates of sound churn the past, present and future of American blues forms into a stylistic kaleidoscope. It's a whole new ballgame. Ted is also an acclaimed music journalist and has a new e-book, "Obsessions of a Music Geek Vol. 1: Blues Guitar." Join us at Grimey's Too to celebrate with Ted Drozdowski's Scissormen.
The MIDNIGHT STROLL - Friday, August 14th @ 6PM
The Midnight Stroll are a band from Austin, TX. It's the side project of Ghostland Observatory singer Aaron Behrens. With Ghostland Observatory, he's a dance-rock preacher, able to convert huge festival crowds with his manic motions. Last year, Behrens debuted his roots-rock side with his new band the Midnight Stroll, taking inspiration from Pasty Cline's "Walkin' After Midnight." With a 10" EP out last year, a new single just dropped and a full-length in the works for next year, The Midnight Stroll are out on tour, stopping in Nashville to play the Hi-Watt on Aug. 14. We'll have 'em for an intimate set in the record store earlier in the evening.
LANGHORNE SLIM & The LAW - Friday, August 21st @ 6PM
Langhorne Slim's follow up to the highly-acclaimed "The Way We Move" is due out August 7th. It's called "The Spirit Moves" and it was recorded right here in Nashville at the Bomb Shelter, with engineer Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray for the Riff Raff), and produced by Langhorne with his band, The Law, and trusted cohort Kenny Siegal. From the press release: "The Spirit Moves is a raw and relatable album about transition, growth and life and one that should appeal to anyone who's lived a little. Brutal honesty, passionate, soulful vocals, and inspired rock'n'roll, that's Langhorne Slim." Langhorne and the Law are in town to rock it out at Mercy Lounge over 2 nights (Aug 21 & 22) and we've got 'em back at Grimey's for a sure-to-be kick-ass in-store set on the Friday. You can also purchase tickets to the Mercy Lounge shows at Grimey's. Stop in to enter to win a free pair!
