Beginning today, Tuesday, August 19th, The Vinyl District’s Tim Hibbs will begin hosting lunchtime vinyl sessions at the historic Acme Feed & Seed every Tuesday and Thursday from noon – 2:00 PM (CST). The 200-year old building is on the National Register of Historic Places and it has been recently converted into a first class restaurant and venue.
The first floor, where Tim will spin, houses the restaurant which offers gourmet, street-food style cuisine and two bars which feature 28 regional craft beers on tap. The hardwood floors and thick ceiling beams belie the building’s former life, but the new owners have spared no expense in making it a true oasis from the tourist trappings of Lower Broadway. Located at 101 Broadway at First Avenue, it overlooks the mighty Cumberland River.
What will Tim spin? The initial sets will focus on music of all genres made in Nashville: blues, soul, rock and, of course, country. Whatever the style, it will all be sourced from vinyl. Tim and Carl Gatti, Acme’s Program Director/Talent Buyer, are serious about keeping it analog, so expect the best in 7”, 10”, and 12” selections. Requests are welcome and questions about the records are encouraged. Tim will publish a detailed playlist after every session, listing the records played and post it to his and Acme’s Facebook pages.
