Ashley Monroe will join previously-announced acts for a free concert in the back parking lot of Grimey’s and The Basement tomorrow in celebration of Record Store Day – Saturday, April, 21st: new Infinity Cat signing Nectar, jangle-pop faves Ornament, singer (and rock culture legend) Bebe Buell, and a steel guitar tribute to The Byrds’ Sweetheart Of The Rodeo led by Lloyd Green and Jay Dee Maness (who both played on the original record). Yep, double steel guitar-led band playing the entire album! Guest DJs will spin sets between the bands.
