Bambara
"Seeing a Bambara set live is sorta like getting trapped in a long, dark corridor with the vague sensation that you are being followed by the thing that terrifies you most … so long as what you’re scared of is experimental indie bands with a tendency to be mellow very loudly." - Weekly Dig Boston
Hilly Eye (Amy from Titus Andronicus) - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Hilly Eye (Amy from Titus Andronicus)
Bugs in the Dark Record Release Party - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Bugs in the Dark Record Release Party
"Apocalyptic rock perpetrators Bugs in the Dark are one of the most awesomely tense indie bands in NYC…The future of New York City music."
- The Deli Magazine
"Bugs in the Dark sounded like a haunted Middle Eastern version of Sonic Youth crossed with My Bloody Valentine, with defiant, pissed-off vocals, scorched-earth guitars and gargantuan drums. What a fun discovery..." -Lucid Culture Blog
Butchers and Bakers - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Butchers and Bakers
Butchers & Bakers used to be four guys, all of whom sang (sort of) and many of whom played guitar, often at the exact same time, very loudly. They are now four people, based in Brooklyn, only one of whom sings. Rebecca Keith’s voice sounds kind of like Grace Slick and kind of like Glenn Danzig; sometimes she plays keyboards too. Founding members Chris Asta and Mike Morini play guitar and drums, and newest member, bassist Hank Baker, was given automatic admission to the band because of his last name. Butchers & Bakers are two native New Yorkers (one uptown, one downtown), one part Eastern Mass, and one part Western Mass.
Listening to Butchers & Bakers kept novelist Courtney Eldridge from her evening exercise routine. She said, "If I could just stop listening to this song [“Victory March”], I would have something to say about all the others you've posted. But I can't! It's too fucking excellent! I couldn't even leave to take my religious nightly hike through Runyon Canyon, because I started listening to this just before heading out the door! Really floored." The band recorded “Victory March,” “The Cleaner,” and “To Leave the Room” in Winter, 2011 and sent them off to Jon Cohrs of Spleenless Mastering for finishing touches.
