To celebrate Record Store Day, the Foo Fighters headed to Niles, Ohio, and they had a very good reason for it. The town is not far from where frontman and Record Store Day Ambassador Dave Grohl grew up in Warren.

The band took over Record Connection, a record store in a local-area shopping mall, for the intimate gig attended by approximately 150 fans. And Grohl definitely paid homage to his roots during the hour-long gig, according to Rolling Stone.

"We're not far from my grandma's house," he told the audience on Saturday (Apr. 18). ""It's just up the road, actually."

The band played a show that included a songs pulled in part from their Record Store Day release, Songs From the Laundry Room, which consists of early demos.

"I know we're in a strip mall," Grohl told the crowd about the unusual setting for the show. "[But] let's pretend this is a stadium!"

And given what the band reportedly played durng the performance, that probably wasn't a hard request to honor. The band not only drew from the Songs From the Laundry Room collection, but also played fan favorites including "Big Me," "My Hero" and "Everlong."

Below are some photos from inside the event.
