The guys in Isadora invited team blaqbook over to check out their set at Glasslands a few weeks ago. So I grabbed some good then met my boy Layton(Courtesy Tier Drummer) at the venue. A bunch of cool bands were on the bill. I caught ANML and Isadora then made my way back to my apartment.
By the time Isadora’s set started the place was packed and they definitely delivered. The crowd was definitely focused during their set. Isadora takes you high, then low, then trips you out a bit, and then rock back out. Never really a dull momment. They keep you on your feet and they’re impossible to predict. Great set guys.
The guys of NYC based band Isadora invited me to Glasslands to catch their set. Before there set this dude ANML was playing. He was pretty cool. He would loop a bunch of instruments then pick a primary one to play while singing. With Glasslands lighting and effects this video came out really cool. Check it out and let me know what you think.
Some bands are good at making good music. Some bands are good live. What separates the great bands from the “eehhhhhhh” bands is the ability to make believers everywhere you go. A perfect example of this are The Suzan. I’ve seen them a few times now and they consistently blow my mind. (more…)
I’ve been trying to catch a good clip of the three piece EULA for quite some time now. The thing with metal/punk bands is the best shows are the small, low lit, sweaty, chaotic places. You know the types: basements, tucked away bars, DIY venues, etc. I’ve seen them 3 times prior to this show and all three times I’ve left ranting and raving about them. (more…)
Last week my buddy Layton called me up and ask if I wanted to go check Throw Vision out with him at Big Snow Buffalo Lodge. I had seen them the week before and wanted to catch a clip of this track. It’s also like 3 blocks from my apartment so I decided to swing by. Throw Vision is hands down one of the slickest bands I’ve came across. Do me a favor. Isolate the sound of each instrument and focus on it. How sick is every single person in this band? Another thing that is interest is the lead guitarist Dan, traded places with Taja who usually plays the keys and bass.
If I didn’t mention it you would have no clue. Even when they alternate instruments I’m still amazed. Do yourself a favor after watching this clip and go to throwvision.org and listen to some of their new EP. Enjoy!
Lately I’ve been listen to up and coming, “Brooklyn born and bred”, hip hop artist Qu3st. He just recently dropped this video that I think you readers will enjoy! This track is called “Born Wit It”. The video work was done by Dumpology. Like always, let me know what you think. Enjoy! It’s good to be back! I’ve missed you readers.
Happy Thirsty Thursday lovers! I don’t know about you but my taste buds are craving some soul, oldies, and rock. If you’re right there with me I have the perfect solution. Come on out to The Grand Victory tonight at 11pm and live a little with DJ Jerk Chicken. Check out the promo mix below. Hopefully I’ll see you tonight!
It’d probably be in your best interest to make it over to Bar Matchless tonight for the “Lovers Quarrel” dance party. At midnight sharp, 2 of The Weekend Warriors, DJ Jerk Chicken and Dr Fiskars will be on the one’s and two’s bringing the oldies, soul, and rock. The best part is it’s FREE! Swing by and live a little. Check out the premix for the party below. Enjoy!
