Even this complete reggae novice like me could recognize that Groundation was the real deal, when the California band stopped by Vintage Vinyl for an extended in-store performance. True fans surely caught them later that night at The Ready Room, but for those who missed the afternoon session, here’s your recap.
Before heading over to a packed Ready Room, the four-piece band Rixton stopped by Vintage Vinyl for a quick meet & greet with fans. Their ongoing Broken Heart Tour is only hitting select cities across the US, so the store found itself filled with young fans gracious for the in-store event.
With the release of No Coast, their first full-length album in 16 years, Braid took a momentary pause on their current tour for an acoustic set at Vintage Vinyl before their electric set at later that evening at Fubar. I missed the original hey day of the band, but was introduced to the quartet later in college through their Movie Music 1 & 2 releases subsequent to their initial split. Needless to say I was super jazzed to see the re-formed band and bring back some photos from the event.
The darling couple of Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis stopped by Vintage Vinyl before their evening show at Off Broadway and capped off the work week with some smooth country to go with the bottles of Schlafly beer handed out for the event.
Fresh off the release of their latest album, Tightrope, Chatham County Line propped up their microphone stand at Vintage Vinyl for a mid-afternoon performance.
