Today Reverb Recommends Discovering Porchlight Coffee & Records at a Free Show with Tomo Nakayama and Drew Victor"/>
Earlier this year, the local Porchlight Records inaugurated their newly formed record label by releasing Grand Hallway's 2009 full-length Promenade as a beautiful limited-edition white vinyl. The multi-faceted Porchlight isn't just a label though -- they're also a record store and a coffee shop, located on 14th Ave. between Pike and Pine. The space has Herkimer coffee, Mighty-O Donuts, local art displays, and best of all, free live music.
Tonight's show seems to be a bit of a secret, but it's a must-see for the multitude of Grand Hallway fans in the city.The show will be an intimate affair -- Grand Hallway's Tomo Nakayama will perform a solo acoustic set along with his friend and frequent collaborator, Drew Victor. Most of us in Seattle are familiar with Nakayama's sweet pop sounds, but if you haven't heard Victor's music, check out this video of him performing his song "California at 29," which can be found on his lovely and eloquent record, My Mother, The Pacific.
Tonight's show at Porchlight starts at 8pm and is absolutely free.
