Jeremy Porter & The Tucos brought their Detroit-made powerpop n’ roll to GTG House when they were touring with the Plurals earlier this spring and we’re happy to kick off the summer-ish time by releasing the latest episode of GTG Sessions, featuring four tunes by this power trio. Check out more of their music and tour dates here.

This Saturday, April 23, in Lansing there’s a fantastic all day show called Stoopfest happening at six house venues on the lovely Eastside. A few years ago we at GTG tossed around the idea of trying to have a multi-venue house show weekend fest thing in Lansing but we never seriously pursued it, so it’s been really cool seeing a similar idea come to fruition completely independently of us – and it’ll also be cool to mostly just be spectators and get to take it all in! The Plurals close out things at Lamp House at 10 PM but throughout the day at all of the houses there’s tons of great music, comedy, and more happening. My biggest bummer of the day is that I won’t be able to get to see Lucy because I’ll be busy setting up and then playing at a different house during their set! The schedule is below and they also have a bandcamp page where people can sample the lineup. Can’t wait!
Check it out! Shows at the Avenue, Mac’s, Green Door, house shows galore, Record Store Day, etc etc! Spring!
Let’s get April moving right with the latest GTG Session starring Little American Champ. Little American Champ are a Lansing-based group that we’ve collectively been playing shows with since 2010 or something. They’ve played all of our spaces and multiple GTG Fests, and in fact just held their record release party at GTG House at the end of March. Their debut LP is out now via Save Your Generation Records, and you can hear live versions of 3 of the songs from it at this very session. Hooray!
