It will be another Record Saturday for Hot Poop this weekend.
Downtown’s music and entertainment store will join vinyl retailers across the country to commemorate International Record Store Day with Saturday’s seventh annual “Presley Methodist of the Unassumed Paradise Parking Lot Barbecue Boogie Revival.”
The event kicks off at noon with live performances, food and music specials.
Reportedly spinning along with the observance, according to an announcement from Hot Poop owner Jim McGuinn, is A Wing & A Prayer Barbecue + Catering, Mill Creek Brew Pub, Public House 124 and Walla Faces, all of which will offer discounts to those who can flash an April 19 Hot Poop sales receipt.
Surprise guests from Hot Poop’s 1984 Homegrown Album will be among the artists performing in a series of free concerts that day.
Rye Grass String Band, which will play Saturday, was reportedly the first band off that album to get local radio airplay when its instrumental version of “Colored Aristocracy” hit the airwaves. Former Rye Grass member Terry Herd now lives in Nashville. He’s a published country songwriter and Sirius XM radio disc jockey host who was recently praised in a blog by comedian and banjoist Steve Martin.
Other performers slated for this weekend’s lineup: Walking Trainsong, The Smart Money, Take Back, The Good And The Damned, and Bloodless.
