The Misters
The Misters aren't your typical guitar group. The band aims to write and perform their own strain of ethereal rock music, which ensures that each song will be equally moving and moveable. Defined by no genre, the group constantly looks to expand their sound by incorporating elements of funk, R&B and jazz to their eclectic array of original music. At its core the band is driven by a raw sexual energy that can be likened to the yacht rockers of the 70s. Playing every note with precision and power, they craft that rare perfect live show that spans the spectrum of human emotion; love, laughter, life, and the feeling of being part of something bigger than yourself.
Color Collage - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Color Collage
Color Collage started as a side project for Shane Conerty while living in Asheville, North Carolina playing in a touring band called Now You See Them in late 2010. After NYST was put on hiatus, Conerty relocated back to Brooklyn, where he currently resides. The project was initially based on sampling mp3's of brand new indie music that Conerty found on blogs and making unique, original remixes of them. After two well received mixtapes, the music of Color Collage (Formerly Leann Grimes) is once again shifting gears. The current focus of the project is taking the indie pop songwriting aspects of Now You See Them and applying them to the mid-fi, dusty electronic sound of Color Collage. The result is something that Conerty is currently describing as "Electronic Doo Wop", and is a fresh sound that is unlike anything floating around at the moment.
RANN - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
RANN
Born out of years of diverse artistic collaborations and a steady hunt for an original music endeavor or their own, RANN is the result of 4 Brooklyn based musicians locking themselves in a isolated cabin during the winter of 2014.

In less than a year of existence RANN wrote, produced and released a nine-track album (“Yellowgun”) and played more than 100 shows in more than 40 different cities in the U.S including 8 shows at SXSW and renown NYC venues such as (Le) Poisson Rouge, The Knitting Factory and Webster Hall. RANNs first album "Yellowgun" received several reviews from online press internationally:

"For young bands, there are no greater elements essential to success than having great songs and a great live show. The rest is just static.
For Brooklyn-based psychedelic-leaning pop-rock band RANN, combining the two is a no-brainer." (Vanyaland)


They’re the latest Brooklyn based band to carve out a niche for themselves in that idiosyncratic indie scene—a five-man ensemble forged from an elusive winter’s night “locking themselves in an isolated cabin” and reemerging with their own collage-genre of rock, dream pop, and punk. Yes, Rann dove into those well-visited depths of trippy psychedelia and in-your-face, garage-band angst, but managed to pull it off without merely repackaging the greats (and kudos to them for that). As for where they fall on the spectrum, think Phoenix with a touch more grit, or The Strokes draped in synth. (Thrd coast)

My ready-made categories and standards of evaluation didn’t quite apply to their music. And yet I saw so much in it that was familiar: Lucy and her celestial diamonds were there. The loose brick in the wall was there. The owner of that lonely heart was there. Every breath I’ve taken, it seems, was there. That is, the music incorporated the trajectory of an entire tradition that I, as a listener, could recognize. Still, the feeling of vertigo was undeniable. (J.P Pereira)


RANN just came back from their second national tour this year, where they spent three weeks of isolation at another cabin writing songs for their new album. RANNs ever growing followers eagerly expect the bands new album in the summer of 2017.
