If you’re a Sturgill Simpson obsessive who also loves a good happy hour, then you’ll want to stop by Monster Music & Movies (946 Orleans Road) this Friday at 5 p.m. for a pre-album-release listening party.

Simpson’s new LP, A Sailor’s Guide to Earth, which features the lead single “Brace for Impact (Live a Little)” and the gloriously reimagined Nirvana track “In Bloom,” isn’t out until Fri. April 15, but the guys at Monster will be spinning the new blue vinyl while serving up free Paizano’s pizza and PBR.

Anyone who pre-orders the record will have the opportunity to win a Simpson tote bag, lithograph, T-shirt, “and we’ll see what else,” says Monster’s Galen Hudson.
