Grimey’s Instore: Warpaint

If there’s one band I’ve fallen in-love within the past year, it’s Warpaint. Hailing all the way from Los Angeles, their recently released album, The Fool came out in October 2010. It’s also the most perfect experimental, ambient art I’ve heard in quite sometime, those angelic voices just make me swoon.

Warpaint is compiled of Emily Kokal (vocals/guitar), Theresa Wayman (guitar/vocals), Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass/vocals) and have been together since 2006 and just recently added the fourth member, drummer, Stella Mozgawa in 2009. The girls are self-proclaimed besties from childhood and I think it’s adorable. Anyway, this new album, The Fool, is something you can kind of roll your head back and sway to, if you’re in to that sort of thing, that is of course if you ever unfold your arms at a show, Nashville! Sadly, I missed the all-girl, four-piece group last year when they played at Exit/In. You’re going to want to make double sure that you aren’t missing them again, like I regretfully did, and on Tuesday, you can. Their FREE instore at Grimey’s is at 6pm. I’ve been told from a reliable source that if you want to see Warpaint at Grimey’s, you need to get there early, plant your feet, and don’t move.

If you can’t make it to the free instore (it happens), then by all means, shell out the $10 ($12 at the door) and go see them at the Mercy Lounge. PVT & Family Band are opening and show starts at 9:00. I’ve had my tickets for a month and a half, so I’ll see you guys there!
