Madame Mayhem has a new album out entitled “Now You Know” and to help celebrate she is doing an in-store performance and signing. Please know that you must purchase the album at VV in order to have it signed. Don’t miss an exciting up and coming artist.
Duran Duran will meet with fans who have purchased a copy of their new “Paper Gods” album and sign it for free at the J&R Express outlet located in the Century 21 Store in Lower Manhattan. Don’t be late or you will miss out. Fans that are too far away to even attend should order a copy via the handy link below.
This was going to be a treat if you were a fan of Steven Wilson, the main brain who is not only behind the Progressive Rock band Porcupine Tree, but also a rather prolific Producer and Engineer when it comes down to it. Tonight the musician was going to be bringing his solo material to the fans over at the Best Buy Theater but that is a narrative for a different blog posting. Right now we were going to celebrate the fact that Steven Wilson was going to take some time out of the busy day to head down to J&R Music World where he would entertain fans with a short acoustic set and then sign copies of his newest album “Grace For Drowning”. I snapped a lot of photos of the performance and wrote up a piece on it that you can enjoy in full by clicking the logo below. As you readers know this will take you over to the main PiercingMetal.com site but then please scroll down for some visuals that I am only presenting here for you.
Artist: Lez Zeppelin
Venue: J&R Music World (New York, NY)

It was that time of the musical year again as Record Store Day hit the region with a melodic force of nature. I present it like this because while this is always an event to remember, the weather outside was doing its best to keep the adventurous gormandizer far away from the racks at J&R Music World. It would clearly have to do a lot worse to stop those kind of folks from taking advantage of the discounts at this store and to prevent them from enjoying some free music courtesy of the band Lez Zeppelin. In order to celebrate Record Store Day, the ladies would be doing a special acoustic set of Zeppelin classics and also giving people a chance to pick up their sophomore album “Lez Zeppelin I” and get it signed if they had such interest.

Now that your taxes were paid you could sit back and relax and see what money you had left to use for that wonderful musical holiday that they call “Record Store Day”. At this stage of the game in music purchasing I am guessing that it should be called either “CD Day” or “MP3 Day” when you think about it. Of course there are vinyl releases coming out every now and again these days but they are no longer the ruler of the musical roost when compared to the dominant mediums. The fun today would take place at J&R Music World where we have covered a number of in-store appearances and intimate performances in the past and among the many that were taking part in the day would be Folk legend Judy Collins and Brooklyn’s own ZO2.
