I’ve seen single bands at Grimeys, and I’ve seen double-header in-stores at Grimey’s, but never in my life could I have dreamt up such an event. Tomorrow, February 2nd, there will be not one, not two, but THREE bands gracing Grimey’s for an in-store.
Sanders Bohlke, Duquette Johnston, and The Great Book of John, the three acts who will be performing, are all part of a new record label called Communicating Vessels. The label, which was founded by Jeffery Cain, is all about showcasing the “amazing range of music emanating from the South.” Oh, and they like to release their music on beautifully packaged 7″ vinyl.
As for the bands playing, they’re all from the Southeast and they’re all different. Sanders Bohlke is an acoustic-guitar-playing, folksy, soulful white boy from Oxford Mississippi, Duquette Johnston (from the Gum Tree Killers) is a folk/roots guy who is fresh out of the wilderness (and used to play with Verbena), and the Great Book of John is led by the now sadly defunct Wild Sweet Orange founding guitarist, Taylor Shaw. They’re for fans of Jeff Buckley and Elliot Smith.
The in-store starts at 6pm on Wednesday, February 2nd. That’s tomorrow! Don’t miss out on this.
