It's time again for the apparently annual Thanksgiving Special with Matt 'Banger' Grimm! This will be a snacks/drinks show instead of the full meal in preparation for gluttony of the following day. Come listen to how bad things are before we all have to be thankful for 24 straight hours. Only 18 hours if you plan on participating in blistering cage match of the pre-Black-Friday-corporate-herding-of-the-retail-purchasing-drones-they've-turned-us-into-extravaganza. It's going to be an evening full of spite, contempt and laughs. Fun for all ages over 15. If you're truly lucky, you may be able to convince Banger to play songs about stupid little dogs and some of the new tracks from his upcoming albums. In all seriousness, if you miss this party, you are probably missing the musical event of the year.
Matt Grimm's Thanksgiving Special!! Like Charlie Brown's, but different. This is a thank you show for all of the great support you have all given The Fire Room in 2013. We can't wait for 2014. No dinner tonight, we'll be saving room for tomorrow.
Sounds Like: Social Distortion, Dave Alvin, Steve Earle, THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM

“This is hands-down the funniest album of the year. It might also be the best. Matthew Grimm is the populist that Springsteen probably wishes he still was – over a pummeling highway rock backdrop, one part Social Distortion stomp, one part turbocharged Bottle Rockets barroom roar, he drops one direct hit after another on religious fanatics, Wall Street swindlers and the system that allowed them to take power in the first place. If the Dead Kennedys had survived Tipper Gore’s assault and traded in the surf rock for Americana, they might sound something like this. Like Stephen Colbert, Grimm’s satire knows no bounds. He’s been as formidable a social critic as songwriter since his days in the 90s and early zeros fronting twangy New York rockers the Hangdogs and this time out he spares no one, and despite the full-frontal assault he’s a lot subtler than it might seem.”
