If you didn’t have a ticket to American Aquarium‘s sold-out show with the Turnpike Troubadours at Off Broadway, you had the fortunate chance to catch them Vintage Vinyl. Mostly an acoustic affair with lead vocalist BJ Barham, the set was a treat for the intimate crowd. Seeing how the band just announced their slot at Willie Nelson’s Heartbreaker Banquet, I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about them once their new record comes out.
On their off-day during their current stint with Shovels & Rope, Hurray for the Riff Raff stopped by Vintage Vinyl for a great in-store performance to showcase new material from their latest release, Small Town Heroes.
Despite another wave of snow yet again covering St. Louis, Cults made it back to town for their evening show with The Pixies at the Peabody Opera House. With a few hours to spare in the afternoon, the Manhattan-based band set up shop at Vintage Vinyl for a full-band performance. Even though the bad weather had delayed the store for getting their copies of the band’s new LP, Static, getting treated to the new songs in-store was certainly a better deal.
The Flaming Lips’ frontman made his way through only five select record stores last week and Vintage Vinyl was a proud host of one of those events, as he showcased the band’s re-release of their first EP, amazingly displayed with a handcrafted chocolate skull and candy brains. The always-friendly Coyne stayed for hours to greet fans, but you can check out some pre-event shots after the jump.
Before their evening show at The Pageant, the men of Asking Alexandria rolled over to Vintage Vinyl for a quick meet & greet with fans. Be sure to check out their latest album, From Death to Destiny, and more photos from the event after the jump.
Part performance, part Q&A, all heart. That’s how I’d describe the unique in-store put on by The Lone Bellow and Vintage Vinyl. I was bummed to miss their set at the Old Rock House later that evening, but the acoustic renditions of new and old material certainly made up for it. Enjoy some shots from their visit after the jump!
Certainly no stranger to this city, Deer Tick took some time before their show at The Firebird and sent over members John McCauley and Ian O’Neil over to Vintage Vinyl for an acoustic in-store performance. Featuring songs from their recent release Negativity, the pair celebrated the afternoon with the large crowd, which incidentally contained possibly some of the youngest Deer Tick fans who happily sung along.
