Upcoming In-Store Happenings
In-Stores are all free and all ages, always. Come rock with us!
Mountain Man 'Magic Ship' Listening Party - Friday, September 21st @ 10AM
Enjoy hearing the new Mountain Man album, Magic Ship, in the shop bright & early on the last new release Friday we'll spend on 8th Avenue South. We'll have tasty coffee and delicious Mountain Man snacks to share (think granola, y'all) as well as some fun prizes.
The Last Day at Grimey's on 8th! - Saturday, September 22nd, 10AM-8PM
Please join us for this extra special day. We aren't planning an event but we'll be here and we'd love to see you one last time in our longtime magic spot before we pull up stakes and move to the East side. And don't forget, BEER:30 is at 5PM!
REVEREND PEYTON'S BIG DAMN BAND - Monday, October 1st @ 5PM, at the new grimey’s!
We're long time supporters of Reverend Peyton and his Big Damn Band. They play damn good stomp-the-floor bluesy roots music and they work their asses off. They also love record stores so the love flows both ways. We've had them in for an in-store performance for just about every record they've ever released and we're stoked that they will be our very first in-store performers in our swanky new digs on the East side! Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band has built its reputation the long, slow, hard way. After 12 years of playing as many as 300 shows each year, Rev. Peyton, the world's foremost country blues finger-style picker, along with the biggest little band in the country has pieced together one of the most dedicated followings out there. This following is sure to eat up the band's latest offering, Poor Until Payday, a country blues record that was made the right way -- two feet on the ground and both hands getting dirty.
JOHN HIATT - Friday, October 12th @ 6PM *Preorder new album for wristband*
Man are we stoked to have John Hiatt break in our new performance space as our first marquee in-store artist! He's got a new album out on October 12th called The Eclipse Sessions and will perform a live set at the new Grimey's at 6PM on that day. Starting on the day we open on Trinity Lane - Friday, September 28th - stop in the new Grimey's and preorder the new John Hiatt album on vinyl or CD and you'll receive a wristband guaranteeing you get in for this special event. We can fit a lot more people inside the new place but space is still limited. We will take preorders in person only from Friday, Sept 28th until Monday morning, October 1st, when we'll open up the phones. More details to follow about that phone number...
The Eclipse Sessions offers up John Hiatt's strongest set of songs in years. Long celebrated as a skilled storyteller and keen observer of life's twists and turns, Hiatt can get at the heart of a knotty emotion or a moment in time with just a sharp, incisive lyric or witty turn of phrase. The 11 tracks presented in The Eclipse Sessions demonstrate that the singer-songwriter, now 66, is only getting better with age, his guitar playing more rugged and rootsy, his words wiser and more wry. Hiatt goes all in with The Eclipse Sessions. There's a grit to these songs' a craggy, perfectly-imperfect quality that colors every aspect of the performances, right down to Hiatt's vocals, which are quite possibly his most raw and expressive to date.
