Elusive, “technically” local garage-psych trio Cheap Time isn’t gonna be so elusive when they appear at two of Nashville cool’s flagship record stores in rapid succession tomorrow. The band will kick off this double-header with a free 6 p.m. in-store at Grimey’s before hopping, skipping and jumping over to Seventh Ave. to melt face alongside Cy Barkley, Heavy Cream, The Ettes and JEFF the Brotherhood as part of Third Man Records’ Next Big Nashville festivities — which they’re hosting in conjunction with Nashville’s Dead.
That show almost undoubtedly promises to be the one to define the Next-ness, Big-ness and Nashville-ness of this year’s event. And if it doesn’t, the Saturday night blowout featuring D. Watusi, PUJOL, Turbo Fruits and Jacuzzi Boys will. Bide your time waiting for that prophecy to fulfill itself by watching the videos above and below capturing Cheap Time’s appearance at the 2009 Scion Garage Fest in Portland, Ore.
