If you're near Nashville this Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2014, swing by Grimey's from Noon to 1pm to sample products from Nashville makers and listen to Hurray for the Riff Raff's new album, Small Town Heroes. We'll be serving a very limited edition (as in, 5 gallons) sweet tea made with Eli Mason Old Fashioned cocktail mixer.
"It's grown into this bigger idea of feeling like we really associate with the underdog… A lot of folks feel like mainstream culture isn’t directed at them. We're for those people." – Alynda Lee Segarra, HFTRR
To celebrate the release of Hurray for the Riff Raff's highly anticipated album Small Town Heroes on February 11, ATO Records and Small Batch America are hosting release parties across the country at independent record stores with the "small town heroes" of the independent food and drink communities.
The events will allow people to listen to the new record at the shop while sampling local indie food and drink makers curated by Small Batch America. Stores include Music Millennium in Portland, Grimey's New & Preloved Music in Nashville, Waterloo Records in Austin, Rough Trade Records in Brooklyn and Euclid Records in New Orleans where the band will be performing live. The shops will be hosting giveaways of limited edition fine art prints with the Small Town Heroes album art, pink vinyl, silk-screened valentines signed by lead singer Alynda Lee Segarra, show tickets, and more!
