The Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. is teaming with Showfields to bring Nashville to New York City with a pop-up vinyl store, Spin On: Nashville’s Vinyl Collection. Curated by beloved Nashville record store Grimey’s in celebration of its 20-year anniversary, Spin On is set to open its doors on Oct. 1, and will offer a curated selection of vinyl by artists who live in Nashville or albums that were recorded in Nashville.
In addition to the selection of vinyl, the unique pop-up at Showfields will host intimate performances, signings and more, and host guest artists including John Hiatt, Ben Folds, Rayland Baxter, Andrew Combs, Jessy Wilson, and Sugar + The Hi-Lows .
“The Music City brand is at the heart of Nashville’s tourism success and the city’s overall success,” says Butch Spyridon, President and CEO of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. “We think this is a creative way to showcase and reinforce the strength and diversity of the music that’s created, written and recorded in Nashville.”
Spin On will be open Oct. 1, 2019-Jan 15, 2020, Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Sundays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Mondays from noon to 8 p.m.
Grimey’s, Nashville’s independent record store since 1999, specializes in new and preowned vinyl, CDs, cassettes, DVDs, turntables, and more. The Nashville trademark regularly hosts live performances, record release parties, book signings and interviews. Showfields’ flagship store premiered in December 2018 at 11 Bond Street in New York and has since grown into a revolving array of art, food, drink and community programming bridging art and retail in the heart of NOHO.
