If you've been following us on social media lately, you'll know that we're pretty fired up about Ty Segall's latest album Manipulator. Not only that, we managed to catch the Ty Segall Band, which they're calling "The Manipulator Band," on their current tour at the Mercy Lounge in Nashville where they gave us one of the best rock and roll experiences we've had in a long time.
We managed to meet up with them at Grimey's before the show and give them some guitar straps. We were stoked to find out that Ty had already bought one of our Peruvian straps for his bass at Caveman Vintage in LA. But we were even more stoked when Ty and Mikal Cronin started wearing the straps we gave them every night on this tour. The straps are holding up well as these dudes are absolutely putting them to the test.
Here are some photos of the band in action. Special thanks to Jamie Hernandez and Amber Davis of do615.com for taking some sweet photos and being generous enough to let us post them here on the blog. If you have a chance to go see this band, don't miss it. They are on fire.
