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.

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:
