Touring after the release of their latest album, Edge of the Sun, the Tuscon-based crew of Calexico dropped by Vintage Vinyl for a full-band in-store (and of course some record shopping afterwards). Even with an early afternoon set, the band drew a crowd of folks ducking out of work and rewarded them with a fantastic performance.
The Feed returned to Vintage Vinyl for a second installment of their end of summer BBQ/pool party hosted the store. With sliders from Salt + Smoke and cold Schlafly beers to compliment the music, the local band brought out several guests including the Cree Rider Family Band and Chris Grabau (Magnolia Summer).
Before their evening show at the Old Rock House, Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear fit an in-store performance into their already packed day (heading to the store right after a KDHX in-studio session). Their debut album Skeleton Crew is out now and judging by the buzz around their sound and performances, it was a great treat to say we got to see the duo in such an intimate environment at Vintage Vinyl.
Vintage Vinyl and The Pageant hosted an afternoon treat for those already headed to the evening Dawes show by featuring a private acoustic performance by frontman Taylor Goldsmith. The intimate session packed the Halo Bar to the brim, with fans even finding seats on the floor up front to take note of the stripped-down songs.
