VIDEO: Foo Fighters play Ohio record store on Record Store Day

The Foo Fighters played a concert for 150 fans at an Ohio record store on Saturday as part of Record Store Day 2015.

The show at The Record Connection in Niles, Ohio saw the band deliver a 9-song set that included three tracks featured on “Songs From The Laundry Room”, a 10-inch vinyl collection of early Foo demos and an unreleased track issued especially for the annual event.

Recorded at Barrett Jones’ Laundry Room Studios in Seattle, Washington, the package includes demos of “Alone + Easy Target” and “Big Me”, a cover of Kim Wilde’s “Kids In America”, and a previously unreleased song, “Empty Handed.”

Head Foo Fighter Dave Grohl was doing double duty as a performer and the 2015 Record Story Day Ambassador, helping bring attention to the annual event designed to promote over 700 independently owned record stores in the USA, and hundreds of similar stores internationally.

Following the record store appearance, the Foo Fighters attended the 30th annual Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony in Cleveland, with Grohl sitting in to perfom with Joan Jett as part of her induction.

The Foo Fighters recently completed an Australian tour in support of “Sonic Highways” and will play across North America this summer starting July 4 at Washington’s RFK Stadium.
