I had the opportunity to chat with Jeremy Scott owner of Broken Records and Beehives. The shop is located in Grandview at the corner of King Ave and Hess St. near King Avenue 5.
There is ample parking near the store and the ubiquitous record store signage.
The space is large and contains a hair salon, run by Jeremy’s wife, Allison. They recently hired a licensed Barber. The record store has a nice selection of new and used records. Prices are fair and there is a nice bargain bin.
They feature local artists paintings as well as jewelry. The store really aims to support the neighborhood art scene.
Jeremy has some nice plans for the stores future as well as the upcoming Record Store day on April 18th.
Ex Hex is playing at Double Happiness on July 23. Hard to believe we’re already starting to hear about July concerts but summer’s not far off (can’t tell that by the frigid temperatures we’ve been experiencing).
The trio, featuring Mary Timony, Betsy Wright and Laura Harris, is touring to support their 2014 Merge Records release, Rips.
Keithpreviewed the Elder show at Ace of Cups a few weeks ago and was fortunate enough to grab 15 minutes with the band – after they all dined on Hound Dogs Pizza – to chat about their new album, touring, dream lineups, etc.
The Basement is celebrating it’s 10 year anniversary with a show by Lieutenant, the new project fronted by Foo Fighters bassist Nate Mendel. Lieutenant released If I Kill This Thing We’re All Going to Eat earlier this year and it’s a nine-song album of lighter indie-pop, something you might expect if you’re familiar with Mendel’s pre-Foo Fighters band, Sunny Day Real Estate. Recommended for fans of Death Cab for Cutie, The Head and the Heart, Elliott Smith, etc.
Because releasing an album or two a year with Buffalo Killers wasn’t enough action, singer/guitarist Andy Gabbard is releasing a solo album (Fluff) next week. As part of the promo tour, Gabbard’s going to be playing a free show on the new Used Kids stage on Saturday. WIG (featuring members of Moon High) and Me Time (Dayton) are also performing. Free pizza. 6pm start time.
Check out the video for “More” and dig the fuzzed-out guitar riffs that remind me of some of my favorite ’90s alt-rock bands (Fig Dish, Veruca Salt, Dinosaur Jr).
