* 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. You can reach us at (615) 226-3811.
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.
