Foo Fighters to play inside a tiny-ass record store in Ohio for Record Store Day this Saturday

Not that there was any real debate, but Dave Grohl is kind of the coolest guy in rock and roll, right? Dude fronts one of the biggest rock bands on the planet, Foo Fighters, and still is chill enough to take his band into dingy bars and clubs for secret shows. Well, add another one to the list: This Saturday, April 18, Foo Fighters are playing Record Connection, a tiny-ass record store in Niles, Ohio, population 18,924—aka the average number of attendees at your typical Foo Fighters gig. Why are they doing this, you ask? Because this Saturday is Record Store Day, y’all! And Dave Grohl is RSD’s official ambassador this year. And because Niles is pretty dang close to Warren, Ohio, which is Grohl’s hometown, and he probably needed an excuse to go visit his mom and do his laundry. Here’s how you can attend:

  • Be one of the first to pre-order  “Songs From the Laundry Room” from the Record Connection in Niles, OH (while supplies last)
  • Pre-sales begin at 10am tomorrow, Thursday April 16th ONLY at the Record Connection, Niles OH. IN PERSON ONLY. No phone or internet pre-order
  • Limit (1) per customer
  • Each customer MUST provide Valid photo ID on Reservation AND check in
  • Tickets are non-transferable
  • This event is open to all ages

If you don’t believe us when we say Record Connection is a tiny-ass store, here’s a local news story on the business from a few years back. Now imagine seeing Foo Fighters in there. Epic.
