Vinyl release party: Friday, January 30, 7 p.m.
The Jinx: Saturday, January 31, 10 p.m.
IT’S here! Finally, we can all score that long-awaited Train Wrecks We Roll On vinyl. Jason Bible and the boys are celebrating, fittingly, with a special stripped-down acoustic set at Graveface Records.
Not only can you nab the hot wax in standard black, but there’s a special run of transparent red/black swirl that will be available, as well. The Wrecks have advised that they likely won’t order those limited edition pressings again, so get a copy while you can.
The following night, catch the gents turned up and plugged in at The Jinx. They won’t be the only ones rocking out: this will be the first of many full-band shows for American Hologram. Expect to see Ethan Stewart on guitar, Ira Miller on drums, and Isaac Smith on bass.
Lubbock, Texas-based singer-songwriter Colin Gilmore joins the bill. With a richly conversational voice, songs that lace standout lyricism with bright guitars and subtle organ strains, and toe-tapping rhythms, it’s easy to see why Gilmore’s LP, the wild and hollow, was heralded by The Huffington Post as the “best Americana singer/songwriter album of 2013.”
Asheville’s Pierce Edens rounds out the bill. Drawing inspiration from his Carolina home and the old-time tunage he heard growing up, Edens’ adolescent obsession with punk rock and grunge toughens up his fascinating stories: think a Tom Waits kind of bluesy aggression for folks who catch Lucero every time they’re in town.
