Stop everything you're doing. The new record shop off of King, RECORD STOP, is here!

Looking for something to do this week? Check out Grit's curated list of happenings.

This is a show that you are not going to want to miss. “Our country roots run deep, but I would say that we’re a honky-tonk band, we’re upbeat.” Edwards recommends checking out “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead” off of Goodbye Normal Street if you’re on the fence. Don’t worry we’ve got a live version here for you to check out. The show is $15 in advance, $17 at the door. Doors are at 8:00 pm. Get out to The Pour House and show the Turnpike Troubadours some Lowcountry love.

The Grammy nominated singer-songwriter discusses her inspiration, her upbringing, and one crazy bat.

Guest Contributor Austin Trevor Covers Raleigh's Hopscotch Music Festival—The Good, The Bad, and The Problematic

It's not often we meet royalty. But Queen Quet of the Gullah-Geechee Nation is the Lowcountry's resident monarch.

Lake Street Dive exploded into the public eye in 2012 with a cover of Michael Jackson’s “I Want You Back.” The YouTube video shows off lead singer Rachel Price’s powerhouse vocals and put the band’s fun-loving vibe on full display; it went viral immediately and now boasts over three million views. Since then, they’ve released two full length albums—Bad Self Portraits and this year’s Side Pony—and they have established themselves as a perennial force in the music world. Recently Charleston Grit had the pleasure of chatting with Lake Street Dive guitarist Mike “McDuck” Olson about their latest album, their upcoming show at the Music Farm June 8th, and Hometeam BBQ—naturally.

Music and fashion go hand in hand. From Elvis and the Rat Pack to Madonna and Gaga music is chockfull of artists doing their best to define trends and make their own signature fashions. Here are five of music’s most legendary fashion statements.

For the record - the most common IV treatments given at Renew IV Spa & Walk-In Clinic are the immuno-boost and the athlete’s boost—not hangover boost, so let’s stop thinking of IV clinics as the hangover pick-me-up spot. I recommend everyone try IV therapy and the walk-in clinic at Renew IV Spa & Walk-In Clinic. Having a walk-in clinic as simple as the one at Renew is such an asset to the community, especially since it is so reasonably priced at just $64 for a history, physical examination, and any necessary prescriptions.

The Broadcast is back on tour this spring in promotion of their upcoming album From the Horizon. Their second full length LP was produced by the renowned Jim Scott – a Grammy winning producer who has worked with The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, and more. Charleston GRIT was given access to the album ahead of release and it is phenomenal. It is grander in scope than their Dodge the Arrow debut – it sounds fuller, bigger. There’s no doubt that The Broadcast has matured and expanded, but they have not lost their signature soul swagger. It’s clear that Asheville has worn off on the band – you can hear hints of Appalachia sneaking into their sound and in some songs that tendency altogether takes the reins. The result is a delicious amalgam of Folk, Americana, and Soul.

The Savannah Stopover festival, a three-day music fest held over multiple venues in historic downtown Savannah, was a blast—and not only because of that infamous open-container law.

No Ace of Base’s or Nirvana’s here, but rather a select tandem of artists you may not have heard in the wake of the musical bounty that was the 1990’s.

I've already said I'm a fan of this band. Fine, I'm biased. Just give this CD a listen. If you hate it, tell me why. If you like it, throw the guys some cash and pay for the actual CD.

Langhorne Slim & The Law to bring their raw live performance to The Pour House this month.

It is impressive and perhaps mystifying that Pope Francis is drawing such extensive crowds - that he was the first pope ever to address both houses of Congress and that he is speaking to the United Nations. Shrink Think takes a stab at why the times and the man are right for each other.

Eddie Hogan, one of Lowcountry music's biggest supporters, passed away late last year. This Saturday at The Windjammer friends, family and musicians will gather for a day that celebrates Hogan's life.

Salsa dancer Georgia Schrubbe teaches firefighter James Romer how to bring the heat on the dance floor.

At what point do you stop discovering new music?
