Promoting their new live album Not So Loud: An Acoustic Evening With..., the Bottle Rockets will play a hometown performance at St. Louis' legendary record store Vintage Vinyl on August 26 at 7:00 p.m.
The live album, released by Chicago based label Bloodshot Records on August 16, highlights the band's strong songwriting over their electric sound influenced by '70s riff heavy Classic Rock (Aerosmith, Neil Young, Lynyrd Skynyrd) and classic country.
The free in-store performance at Vintage Vinyl features an acoustic set from the band and free beer courtesy of St. Louis based brewer Schlafly. Free music and free beer surrounded by thousands of records and good people. What's not to like there?
For their Record Store Day performance at Euclid Records this year, Bottle Rockets frontman Brian Henneman and bassist Keith Vogele barnstormed through 15 career spanning songs in about an hour. If that set was any indication, fans of the "Best Band on the Planet" will not want to miss this intimate show.
To tide you over until Friday evening we encourage you to go listen to this interview with Henneman conducted by David Greene of NPR where they discuss the new live album.
Going out on a limb here, but it's not far-fetched to think that more than a few trucks will make the trip to University City from the Twin Cities (no, not Minneapolis-St. Paul, but Festus-Crystal City) this Friday to see their favorite sons play a few tunes. In case anyone needs it here's the address to plug into the GPS:
6610 Delmar Boulevard
Saint Louis, MO 63130-4503
See you there!
