Updates and New Releases 11/8/2019
Hey there, welcome to another Tone Deaf Records update. We are very excited to be having the movie screening of the fantastic Vannin' documentary this evening at 7:00. The showing is free and there will be beer on hand provided by our great friends at Metropolitan Brewery. It is sure to be a great time, more info below.
We also want to thank The Poison Arrows for putting on a scorching set last Saturday at the shop. They were fantastic and we look forward to hearing their new record and having them back in the shop. They dropped off some of their records at the shop so be to sure to pick one up, they are great!!
We have a handful of great new releases that hit our shelves this week including new records from Nick Cave & The Badseeds, FKA Twigs, a bunch of new releases from Bloodshot Records, including our record of the week, Chris & Cosey reissues, a great Rodan LP of old unreleased material and a bunch more. Great stuff all around.
The following events will be happening in our humble little record store. Hope you can make it!!
The Family Gold & Los Gallos
Saturday Nov. 30 - 2:00pm
We are pleased to be partnering up with Bloodshot Records to feature these two wonderful local bands that both happen to be on the new Bloodshot Records 25 year anniversary compilation Too Late To Pray (which we have in the shop nonetheless). This is also small business Saturday so what a better excuse to dig for records and watch two great bands play. To to top it off, PBR will be providing free beer all day!!
Soft Speaker & 8-Bit Creeps
Saturday Dec 7th – 7:00pm
We are proud to have the wonderful local indie-rock/shoegazer band Soft Speaker playing the shop. They are bringing their post-punk/psych rock buddies 8-Bit Creeps with them. Both these bands put on great live shows and we are happy to have them in the shop!!
