Announcement: Greg Ginn In-Store Performance at Blue Arrow Records 9/15

A long time ago in a galaxy not really that far away....

Setting the scene: On a random Monday afternoon,  Pat the Producer forwards an email my way with an opportunity attached to do something with Black Flag founder and SST Records owner Greg Ginn.

Currently on tour with two of his projects, Jambang, and Greg Ginn and the Taylor Texas Corrugators, Ginn will be at the Beachland Ballroom on Tuesday, September 15th for a low-dough gig  in the Tavern.

Once we found this out, Brian and I put our heads together and decided to do something cool!

Prior to the Beachland show, Addicted to Vinyl and Broken Headphones are pleased to present a free special in-store performance at Blue Arrow Records and Books with Greg Ginn and the Taylor Texas Corrugators that will start at 7pm.  Ginn will meet and greet with fans after the performance, and then we'll all head over to the Beachland to rock it up with the Corrugators and Jambang!

Here's a few Ginn stats for ya:

-  #99 on the list of The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All-Time, according to Rolling Stone Magazine.

- Founded SST Records in 1978, an influential label responsible for a wide variety of releases, including albums from The Meat Puppets, The Minutemen, Husker Du, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, and Bad Brains, just to name a few.

- Since breaking up Black Flag, Ginn has recorded a few solo albums, and has performed with the bands HOR, Fastgato, The October Faction, Gone, Confront James, EL BAD, Mojack, The Texas Corrugators, Jambang, and also played bass with Tom Troccoli's Dog.

Enough with the stats, let's rock!

Here's a recap of the details:
