We are psyched to partner with Dawes once again for an exclusive opportunity for their fans to get to experience a special, intimate show just by choosing to buy their new album at Grimey's! The album is called We're All Gonna Die and it's out September 16th on vinyl and CD. If you preorder your copy at Grimey's, beginning at 11AM TODAY (Monday, August 29th) you'll receive a wristband that guarantees you entry into the show at The Basement East on Thursday, September 22nd (doors at 6pm/show at 7pm). One wristband per copy purchased. The show is 18 and over. Space is limited so don't delay.
Dawes' highly anticipated new album We're All Gonna Die will be released September 16 via the band's own HUB Records. Of the album, Taylor Goldsmith (guitar, vocals) explains, "Pretty much every song on this record explores a difficult situation and tries to find a way to find the good in it, or at least remind yourself that it's not always that big of a deal. After all, as scary as it is, we are all gonna die." The album was produced by Grammy nominated producer Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes) and includes backing vocals from Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe of Lucius, Mandy Moore and Will Oldham. Dawes has toured extensively playing headline shows worldwide and major festival appearances including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza and Newport Folk Festival. Recently, they have toured with My Morning Jacket, Bob Dylan, Mumford and Sons, Conor Oberst, and Jackson Browne. In the fall of 2014, Goldsmith contributed to Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes, an album project which found collaborators Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons) and producer T Bone Burnett writing and creating music for a treasure trove of recently discovered lyrics handwritten by Bob Dylan in 1967 during the period that generated the recording of the legendary Basement Tapes. Fellow collaborator Jim James proclaims about We're All Gonna Die, "The record sounds so fresh-yet fills me with a strange nostalgia for things that haven't happened yet...I hear it at the beach and blasting out of car windows on future summer nights...easily having become a natural part of people's lives."
We couldn't be more excited to offer this cool opportunity for Dawes fans to see this intimate club show. We are taking pre-orders in the shop now. Vinyl is $17.99 and we'll have the indie-tastic yellow marble vinyl version. The CD is $11.99. One wristband for the Basement East show with each copy sold. Sorry but we cannot take orders over the phone until Wednesday, August 31st.
BILLY BRAGG & JOE HENRY - FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23RD @ 5:30PM

They have teamed up to explore America's rails and musical heritage on 'Shine A Light: Field Recordings From the Great American Railroad.' Recorded while traveling by train, 'Shine A Light' features songs originally made famous by Hank Williams, Lead Belly, the Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, Glenn Campbell, Gordon Lightfoot and more. Join us on Friday, September 23rd @ 5:30pm for an intimate, free live performance by Billy Bragg and Joe Henry on the day 'Shine A Light' is released!
