The Dead South Live at Grimey's

  • Grimey's New and Preloved Music 1060 East Trinity Lane Nashville, TN, 37216 United States (map)

The Dead South, a four-piece acoustic band from Saskatchewan, infuse the traditional trappings of the bluegrass genre with an air of frontier recklessness, whiskey breakfasts and grizzled tin-pan showmanship. Their sound, build on a taut configuration of cello, mandolin, banjo and guitar, speeds like a train past polite definitions of acoustic music into the grittier, rowdier spaces of the bluegrass world. Currently one of the hottest tickets on both sides of the Atlantic, The Dead South have doubled their draw with each subsequent tour since 2018. 2019 will see the band make their debut at iconic venues and festivals in the USA and UK, Red Rocks and Glastonbury. The story behind their incredibly robust worldwide fanbase is both a modern music biz fairytale and a timeless tale of a band that built their audience show by show, delivering a relentlessly great, high-energy frenzy.

Since their last release, 2016's JUNO Award winning Illusion & Doubt, The Dead South have maintained a formidable touring pace while also finding time to pop up in fitting and meaningful ways, from a contribution to the star-studded bluegrass and Americana Roger Miller tribute album to sweet duets with fellow prairie boy Colter Wall. Their new album Sugar & Joy will be out via Six Shooter Records on October 11th, 2019. Since The Dead South are in Nashville so far in advance of the release, we won't have copies of the new record at their in-store. We will have some of their previous releases and for fans that preorder Sugar & Joy, you'll get an exclusive Grimey's art print, hand-screened with silver foil on heavy stock AND a beer koozie branded just for this event! Preorder link is up now at the Grimey's website. Sorry but we can't ship the posters. These cool items are for those who come to the show.
