There are record stores all over the world that need some support and Good Records of Dallas Texas are no exception. Throughout its 20 year history the store has hosted a number of exceptional instore performances from a wide range of eclectic acts including Alice Cooper, Erykah Badu, Baroness, Beach House, Dawes, Death Cab For Cutie, Steve Earle, Grandaddy, Grimes, Grizzly Bear, Daniel Johnston, The Lumineers, Of Montreal, The Polyphonic Spree, Queens of the Stone Age, The Shins, Spoon, St. Vincent, Chris Stapleton, They Might Be Giants, Tegan & Sara, Jeff Tweedy, TV On The Radio, Kurt Vile, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs to name but a few.
On the 27th of July last year, Jason Lytle came into town to be a part of Good Records grand opening of its new location. The store borrowed a piano from the recording studio next door and captured a night to remember with a one-man director/editor/cameraman powerhouse named Steven Gaddis. Chris Penn, the store’s co-owner began brainstorming potential fundraising opportunities to help keep the store afloat while its brick and mortar operations have ceased due to Covid 19. He remembered that the footage had been shot but not edited of Jason Lytle’s performance. He got Steven to put it together so he could pitch to Jason Lytle who graciously agreed to its release as a way to help out the store.
The show is an amazing 14 song career spanning retrospective of Grandaddy and Jason Lytle solo material that clocks in at one hour ten minutes. The film will be making its debut this Saturday (and be available whilst Good Records is temporarily closed) via Vimeo On Demand. There are two options for donating: a 3-day rental or a buy/download option.
