Paramore to Play Grimey's on Record Store Day; See Grimey's Full RSD Schedule [Updated]



In a move that will no doubt make an already jam-packed Eighth Avenue even more packed and more jammed, Paramore announced today they'll be playing an acoustic set at Grimey's on Record Store Day, Saturday, April 20. One of many, many things you could buy that day is what they're calling "a Record Store Day exclusive die-cut 7' vinyl in the shape of a hibiscus flower with the 3 interludes from the new album." The Holiday Sessions, we are told, will be limited to 700 copies, 300 of which will be on sale at Grimey's.

Speaking of that new record, Paramore, I venture to say, might be the Paramore album that makes Paramore fans out of people who disliked some of their past haircuts — more sonically diverse than they've been, a pop-rock album uninhibited by genre stricture (perhaps to a fault). No matter where you stand on whether they were ever a local band before they left town, Paramore shows a lot of growth. Here's some proof.

So, to recap: big band, small store, cool beans. The performance is scheduled for 1 p.m., with signing to follow.

Update: Grimey's has sent along further Record Store Day details, including their full RSD lineup. See that info block-quoted after the jump.

we'll also have the Smoke Et Al food truck and Pat from Jimmy Carl's Lunch Box will be serving Thai street food (a cuisine he fell in love with in Thailand). Frothy Monkey will be serving coffee and breakfast to those in the line and will have additional food offerings throughout the day. We'll have a craft beer garden on the Basement patio and full bar inside the Basement. Thousands and thousands of cheap records & CDs in a sidewalk sale, additional vendors like Nisolo shoes (local company that sells killer shoes made by artisans from impoverished countries 'wear change' is their moto).
