Landlady - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Landlady
"Landlady…joins a lineage of New York City art-rock bands that transmute existential questions and primal fears into exultant songs, bands like Talking Heads, TV on the Radio and Dirty Projectors." - The New York Times

"Landlady occupy a big middle space always in need of willing entrants: brainy, melodic pop-rock. They move through their second record ‘Upright Behavior’ like the USS Sincerity, offering to share with you in your biggest fears: death, loneliness, lack of purpose." - Pitchfork

"This is the part of the song when we come together," Adam Schatz's voice rings out. "There's no before. There's no after. There's only this." Schatz leads Landlady, the Brooklyn five-piece whose 2014 Hometapes debut, ‘Upright Behavior,’ boldly disrupts the notion of genre and reveals the soulful and continually-resonating work of Schatz and core band members Ian Chang, Ian McLellan Davis, Booker Stardrum, and Will Graefe, as well as a cast of NYC-based contributors gathered from Schatz's tandem walks of life as a solo musician, improviser, organizer, collaborator, promoter, and writer. Landlady merge vast skill, a bend toward experimentation, and a proven belief that songs can be a true extension of the human experience. The result is timeless and charted by their recorded works and transformative live shows — both critically-acclaimed and ever-evolving.
