Music love lives at Grimey’s

I recently caught the Dynamites featuring Charles Walker at Luna Music, and I had the chance to interview Doyle Davis, the man behind Grimey’s. I’ve heard and read the buzz about Grimey’s so I decided to call Todd Robinson, founder of Luna Music (and Records) and a hyper-connected man musically. Here’s what he had to say (Grimey’s is )”Nashville’s de-facto Spot for music lovers record heads and great customer service. It’s the music city’s most fantastic hub for music knowledge and superlative musical selection. I mean Elvis Costello asked to sign records there, David Brynne has done signings there, Metallica did a secret concert recently and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. And of course they have “The Basement” which is a live music venue downstairs. So it pretty sweet what they do.”

It seemed appropriate to get the official Grimey’s point of view and so I called Anna, the general manager of Grimey’s, who said, “people operate under the assumption that the only music in Nashville is country or blue grass – while thats true – we have lots of local rock, jazz and funk bands, and grimey’s works to showcase the independent music or this country and internationally. Most of us find ourselves here is our common love for music and the community that surrounds music – song writers, musicians, producers and so on. We have in-stores all the time. You could say we’re enthusiastic about music here.”
