Upcoming In-Store Happenings
In-Stores are all free and all ages, always. Come rock with us!
DEAF POETS - Thursday, September 21st @ 6PM
One cool thing (of many) about the indie record store community is we all try to help out each other's local scenes however we can. We recommend Nashville acts to stores in other cities when our bands go on tour and vice versa. So when our good friends at Radioactive Records in Fort Lauderdale reached out about a badass band coming through Nashville looking for an in-store opportunity, we said "hell yeah!" Miami's Deaf Poets recently released 'Lost In Magic City', their new album mixed and mastered by Jim Diamond (The White Stripes, The Sonics, The Dirtbombs). The band consists of Sean Wouters (Lead Vocals/Guitar) and Nico Espinosa (Vocals/Percussion). Their music is the embodiment of hard-hitting drums with distortion-soaked guitars. Deaf Poets are hitting Nashville to play a show at the Cobra and will stop in at Grimey's for a set earlier in the evening.
The LONELY BISCUITS - Friday, September 22nd @ 6PM
After forming in a Belmont University dorm in 2011, it wasn't long until the Lonely Biscuits' unique blend of Indie, Funk, Soul, Hip Hop, and Pop propelled them to become a local Nashville favorite. Just two years later, this band went on to win the MTVu Woodie Award for College Artist of the Year. We are excited to have them perform here in the shop, celebrating their sixth release, "The San Francisco EP." Swing by for an intimate set and good vibes.
SON LITTLE - Saturday, September 23rd @ 5PM
Son Little, the singer and songwriter born Aaron Livingston, is the easygoing musical alchemist of our time. He is a conjurer, and much like those of his heroes Stevie Wonder and Jimi Hendrix, his songs are deconstructions of the diaspora of American R&B. Deftly he weaves different eras of the sound—blues, soul, gospel, rock and roll—through his own unique vision, never forced, always smooth, each note a tributary on the flowing river of rhythm and blues. And now, with his second full-length album, New Magic, he has delivered a profound statement, a cohesive creation that captures the diverse spirit of American music in a fresh and modern way. On the heels of his 2015 self-titled debut and the 5-song EP, Songs I Forgot, that came before it, Son Little found his reach steadily growing. His song “Lay Down” had been streamed over seven million times, he had toured the world with artists as diverse as Leon Bridges, Kelis, Mumford & Sons, Portual. The Man and Shakey Graves in addition to his own headlining runs, and also became a Grammy Award winning producer, earning a 2016 Best Roots Performance award for his work on Mavis Staples' 'Your Good Fortune.' Son Little's 'New Magic' is out Sept 15th and he will perform an in-store set at Grimey's on September 23rd, at 5PM.
*repeat repeat - Monday, September 25th @ 6PM
*repeat repeat is your favorite band’s favorite band. Mixing the sunny swoon of Sixties pop with a dark swirl of Warholian garage rock, *repeat repeat create their own geography to match their sound. Based in Nashville, TN — where frontman Jared Corder, drummer Andy Herrin, and vocalist/keys player Kristyn Corder launched the band with its 2014 debut Bad Latitude — the three musicians make pop songs rooted in the spirit of both coasts, looking beyond the borders of their landlocked hometown and, instead, mixing California surf culture and New York street smarts into the same tracklist. They’re a blend of bloom, doom, and boom. They’re Dick Dale’s snot-nosed grandkids. They’re *repeat repeat! We're super stoked to have Jared, Andy & Kristyn return to Grimey's to celebrate their new album Floral Canyon (out Sept 15) with a raucous in-store live set, on Monday, Sept 15th, at 6PM.
The LONE BELLOW - Tuesday, September 26th @ 6PM *Preorder at Grimey's for wristband*
We've been on board with The Lone Bellow from the get-go. They performed at Grimey's when their first album came out and also played a secret midnight show at The Basement. So we're stoked to have them back for the release of their third album 'Walk Into A Storm.' The Lone Bellow's earnest and magnetic folk-rock was built to shake the rafters - it's hooky and rousing and performed with absolute commitment. The new album, which is out September 15th on Descendant Records/Sony Music Masterworks, was produced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) and recorded in Nashville, TN at legendary RCA Studio A.
Beginning Friday morning, September 1st, come to Grimey's to preorder 'Walk Into A Storm' on vinyl or CD and you'll receive a wristband guaranteeing you entry to the in-store performance and an autograph signing with the band after their set. We will only be taking preorders in person at Grimey's over the weekend. If there are still slots left, we will take orders over the phone (615-254-4801) beginning Monday, September 4th, when we open at 11AM.
