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 exciting in every way. That band is The
Rassle. With their brand of no-frills rock-and-roll, they've taken the
music scene by storm and have quickly become one of the most talked
about bands to come out of New York in some time.


Driven by brothers, Reed and Blair Van Nort (guitar 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 from the likes of Interview Magazine, NYLON, Blackbook, The
Fader, New York Press and more. The Deli Magazine praises their
“droney guitar sound, combined with pristine and beautiful pop-folk
melodies and dancey beats.” Likewise, The Fader claims they create the
“fully fist-pumpable, soccer chant, working-for-the-weekend all star
self-assurance jams of that goodness gracious variety” while the
guitar brand, Gibson, named the foursome one of their “10 Artists to
Watch.”


Over the last several months, The Rassle has shared the stage with
Florence and the Machine, Wavves, Civil Twilight, Mystery Jets, Mona
and more, consistently playing to packed rooms throughout New York and
the east coast. And their music has been featured everywhere from
commercial spots with Bear Naked Granola to video game syncs with
Playstation's MLB '11: The Show.


With their powerful and timeless anthems, buzz-saw guitar licks, and
inspiringly cool melodies, it's clear that The Rassle has positioned
themselves as bright industry frontrunners.
