Chris Gaffney tribute top seller at Twist and Shout
Since Twist and Shout hosted an autograph signing with Dave Alvin at the L2 Arts and Culture Center, it might have helped push the Chris Gaffney tribute, Man of Somebody's Dream, to the top of the store's best sellers for the week ending August 16. After Gaffney died last year, Alvin recruited Joe Ely, Boz Scaggs, Los Lobos, James McMurtry, John Doe and others to pay tribute Gaffney, who was a member of the Hacienda Brothers. Portugal the Man, who performed at the store last week, grabbed the number two slot while Dead Weather, Modest Mouse and Wilco rounded out the top five. See the full breakdown after the jump.
