Foo Fighters played a special gig at a record store in Ohio last month (April 18) for this year’s Record Store Day. Frontman Dave Grohl was the official ambassador for the 2015 event, which celebrates the culture and plight of independent record shops.

The group played a nine-song set at Record Connection in Niles, Ohio – just miles away from Grohl’s hometown of Warren, Ohio. Grohl arrived at the venue by motorcycle.
