Out There at The Last Record Store — Remember when your car didn’t have auxiliary cord slots or Bluetooth capabilities to sync your phone to your stereo? Better yet, remember when CD players didn’t exist and tapes were all the rage?
Well, the majority of the local Americana music scene does. “The Out There Tapes” is a collection of songs by local acts such as Ashley Allred, Frankie Boots and The County Line, David Luning and Sean Hayes, just to name a few. The compilation was recorded at Gremlintone studios owned by local musician John Courage.
To celebrate the release of this collection of cool tunes, both The Crux and John Courage will play a free concert at The Last Record Store in Santa Rosa this Saturday. Swing by to pick up a copy, or listen to cool rock n’ roll guitar riffs and creative sounds made via large metal chains.
BIG in-store on Saturday September 2 @ 2pm ish:
