Though our friends at Grimey’s don’t have any in-stores this week, they will be having dual lunchtime listening parties this Friday, May 5 that sounds downright enjoyable. They even have free snacks and swag!
Here’s a little bit about those…
Grateful Dead ‘Cornell 5/8/77’
Join us first thing Friday morning, May 5th, when we open at 11am. We’ll be listening to the Cornell show while enjoying delicious free donuts from Fox’s Donut Den & sipping free Frothy Monkey coffee AND we’re going to give away a 5-LP vinyl copy of the Cornell 5/8/77 show, a very limited piece that is otherwise only available directly from the band through dead.net. We’ll also have some cool Grateful Dead swag to share with attendees, while supplies last and we’ll have the 3-CD set for you to purchase.
Mac Demarco & Slowdive
We’re going to jam out to the new Mac Demarco album in the shop and will have some cool prizes to giveaway including a vinyl test pressing of the new “This Old Dog” LP and a signed copy of the album on cassette tape. We’ll also have some Mac Demarco guitar pics to share with attendees for their shredding needs.
As soon as “This Old Dog” is done, we’ll cue up the new Slowdive LP, their first new album since 1995! We’ll gaze off into the deep unknown (or maybe at our shoes) as we spin their new, self-titled album and then maybe you’ll win a signed copy of the vinyl and a special Slowdive slipmat. Plus we’ll have Slowdive buttons & stickers to share with attendees.
