September 2021 Shows!

More good stuff in September from GTG bands and friends! As always we’ve got a wide variety of stuff at The Avenue Cafe in Lansing (9/10 features The Hunky Newcomers):

Jeremy Porter has a solid solo acoustic run in the Midwest:

The Stick Arounds are also getting some Midwest action in:

And The Wild Honey Collective round things out with some Michigan dates:

See you there!

July 2021 Shows!

On Friday July 9 Matt Carlson (the ol’ Harborcoat and Stick Around man himself) and Johnny Aimcrier will be playing at Brickhaven in Grand Ledge, MI. Tommy and Danielle from Wild Honey Collective will be joining them for a few songs and to do a couple of ours too.¬†


Saturday July 10 will see Cavalcade¬†play the first show at Pyramid Scheme in Grand Rapids since early 2020. Way to go, boys! Somehow, GTG-affiliated acts are weirdly ushering in the return of live music to the, er, weirdos of the Midwest. Case in point….

Saturday July 10 is also the let’s-not-overstate-it-too-much return of shows to the Avenue Cafe in Lansing, featuring The Hunky Newcomers, Foxgrave, and Jeremy Porter. Geez! That feels good to say. No cover, 21+, 9 PM, just… come and watch! Wow! There’s shows every Saturday in July at the Avenue, and they’ve all got a GTG flavor to them: Saturday July 17 RK Andrews from No Skull opens up for our friends Bloody Butterflies and Bubak, Saturday July 24 Nicholas Weltschmerz opens up for the debut show of the latest Josh David fronted band Frowntown, and on July 31 the Wild Honey Duo will open up for a night of music featuring Michigan mainstay Jen Sygit. Something for everyone, you’re welcome!

Staying Home… One Year Later

Holy smokes, has it been a year?!?? Just over a year ago as the stay-at-home order was issued in Michigan we started doing daily videos of GTG family and friends in quarantine. Weird times, but the solidarity experienced was a pretty awesome thing to take in, though we’re not quite ready to start getting pandemic nostalgia. Here’s a playlist of Staying Home With GTG Records from spring 2020, and there are a few more on the GTG facebook that never got uploaded to youtube. Glad we’re all still here!

Bermuda Snowhawk 2020!

Just in time, an unbroken string of holiday miracles from the folks at BMP and GTG! Featuring new music from The Plurals, Cavalacade, The Hunky Newcomers, Jeremy Porter, Scary Women, The Wild Honey Collective (debut recording!), many members of Frank and Earnest, Tim Hoh from Honah Lee, Nicholas Weltschmerz, Mistic Mountian, our many whacky holiday-themed bands, plus first time showings from Satyrasis (with the Foghat banger we haven’t deserved til now), Bicycle Shorts, and more! Cheers!

WATCH: GTG Fest 2020

The whole darn thing, GTG Fest 2020! A great time and still a fest, as weird and not-in-person as it was. Thanks to all who played and all who watched!

GTG Fest 2020 – Online! (UPDATED w/ Schedule)

You didn’t think we’d let COVID take away GTG Fest did ya? The 13th annual GTG Fest will be coming to you SATURDAY OCTOBER 10, following you on your mobile devices, lurking in the corner of your home on your smart TV, somehow popping up on that confusingly not-discarded Windows 98 Gateway tower that hasn’t been connected to the internet since 2001… EVERYWHERE!

Did I make watching a livestream briefly sound a little exciting? Well, we’re gonna do our best to bring some of the magical GTG Fest chaos to the streams. This thing’ll be streaming live from 4-10 at the GTG facebook page AND on the GTGRecordsTV youtube channel for all you fellow facebook haters out there. The show must go on!
