On Saturday, June 22 at 2:00 p.m. The Corner Record Shop in Grandville will host four bands in collaboration with local web music magazine, Listen to the Mitten (LTTM), and Bisou Booking.

“I expect that it will be a fun time to connect with music lovers in a setting that is a little different than the typical show,” says Jacob Pauwels, founder of Listen to the Mitten.

Grand Rapids is breaking out on the national scene with more and more acts every day; acts like The Soil and The Sun are blazing the way and putting our city on the map musically,” says Pauwels.

Pauwels has been running the online music source since January 2012. He says the primary goal of the webzine is to inform those who are interested in local music and keep the Michigan scene connected.

“[LTTM wants to] spark interest in local music among those who previously did not have it, by revealing the immense talent in our state,” says Pauwels.

The Corner Record Shop is also excited to have more shows in its shop, especially after the success of having bands play on Record Store Day 2013.

“I would say that we're really looking forward to seeing how the shows go in the back of the store here. We had great turnouts for our Record Store Day shows. People seemed to really enjoy the bands and it sounds just great back there,” says April Zimont, new vinyl buyer and record store clerk for The Corner Record Shop.

Pauwels added that attendees of the show should look forward to Grand Rapids’ own Good Day Good Sir.

“Good Day Good Sir is a new rock two-piece that blends indie elements of bands like Manchester Orchestra and Oceana. They have impressed me with their energy and songwriting, and it's only a matter of time before they hit it big,” says Pauwels.
