The Morning After Girls - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
The Morning After Girls
...after making their first two albums in australia, it was time to reside in the place that resonated the immediate place in their hearts; new york city. after six years of constant global touring with appearances including
the reading and latitude festivals to name a few, plus tours with the black rebel motorcycle club, muse, the church, and the black keys, the morning after girls are finally back doing what they have been deprived of for so long; playing blistering, moving, epic shows to audiences starved of the
girls' unique sonic experience. why do we say "deprived"? well, both martin and sacha have endured a year of the most
challenging times that an artist could only dread.
upon completing their latest release "alone", both martin and sacha have battled countless immigration laws in order to continue doing the only thing they know how -
sharing an audial experience like no other. through a journey that is only theirs, the morning after girls
continue to provide an experience that is at once, unique, unsettling, dynamic, vocally astonishing and in today's day and age, a level of beauty that can only be seen to be believed. they will be celebrating their NYC return with a special launch-party performance at the mercury lounge on thursday september 1st. anyone who is a fan, or who is yet to experience the girls' repertoire, we urge you to get your tickets fast, as the band will be displaying a range of new songs from the forthcoming third album.
do not miss this show.
The Rassle - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
The Rassle
Every once in a while, a band comes along that stands apart from the rest. There's something immediately familiar but undeniably new, absolutely their own, and fun as hell. That band is the Rassle. Driven by brothers, Reed and Blair Van Nort (guitars/keys and vocals, respectively), The Rassle recorded a few songs in a cramped NYC apartment with a $50 microphone and an old computer. The resulting 4-song EP--which the band gave away for free on their website (www.therassle.com)--earned them a considerable amount of buzz and acclaim.

The Fader described their music best, saying they create“fully fist-pumpable, soccer chant, working-for-the-weekend all star self-assurance jams of that goodness gracious variety.”

The brothers recently teamed up with drummer Warren Stubbs and producer John O'Mahony (Metric, Depeche Mode) to record their debut album which is expected to be released in 2015
