Grand Palace Records unleashes new blog
Good news for those of us in the southeast -- the kickass Grand Palace Records in Murfreesboro, TN, has joined the blogosphere. I first posted about their store and space (and Ghostfinger) back in mid-February when they hosted a Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin/Catfish Haven show in their live room. Their new blog, Bucket City is Burning, highlights music releases and events in the Murfreesboro/Nashville area. They're off to a good start, featuring such acts as Silver Jews, Ponys, Liars, The O'Jays (!), and I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness. Check out their homepage as well.
Grand Palace Records is also on MySpace. If you're in or near Nashville or Murfreesboro, I highly recommend checking out their shop and/or attending some of the shows they host. These are great guys with a great facility.
While we're at it, here's some audio by great Murfreesboro/Nashville-area acts:
Ghostfinger - Shine a Light
Lone Official - Central Avenue
Heypenny - Secreterror
The Clutters - Calling Her Name
Bad Friend - Lemonhead Loser (live)
The United Front - Silk Chocolate
Velcro Stars - Another Winter
The Mattoid - Shiny Woman
The Carter Administration - The REM Speedwagon
Hands Down Eugene - Denise
Glossary - Lonesome Stray
Oh No! Oh My! - Walk in the Park (well, 2/3 of them live in Nashville now...)
