Greta Van Fleet:
In-store with TVD
at DC’s Som Records

You’ve most likely heard plenty about Greta Van Fleet of late—saviours of rock and roll, reminiscent of Led Zeppelin and other ’70s arena rock stalwarts, and heck–that here in Washington, DC they sold out the storied 9:30 Club on a Friday to packing them in at the far larger Anthem in DC the following evening. It’s been one hell of a steady ascent, even before a proper debut LP has arrived in stores.

Well, we’ll tell you what our ears have heard—a shit-hot rock and roll band who have most certainly had their noses tucked into some records from early on, and who have absorbed the authenticity and passion those old records still elicit. (There’s probably some good parenting in there too, but we digress.)

In advance of the 2 shows here in DC last summer, we grabbed bassist Sam Kiszka and drummer Danny Wagner from the tour bus down to the basement confines of Som Records, the backdrop for all of our Washington record rummages. Candidly however, Sam and Danny didn’t need any coercing as you’re about to see.

So, onward! We’re record shopping with Greta Van Fleet at DC’s Som Records!
