I received a nice email from Carmen Champagne, lead singer of The Grimm Generation, a great little band out of Windsor.She and guitarist/singer Jason Krug released an album recently called The Last Record Party that's getting good reviews.
Says Champagne: "The Grimm Generation represents children of the 70s at 40... a microcosm of the current state of post major label music business." She also says the band's lyrics "represent the suburbs of Connecticut and all the dark, creepy corners it contains." Love it.
Catch them at one of their upcoming shows:
Fri., Aug. 19, 7:30 p.m.
