11 PM :: Ribbons [Myspace]
Jenny Logan, Sam Roudman and Jeff Ciprioni tear it up with a sound that's fast and energetic while also retaining something dark and brooding. This is their last-ever NYC show, so catch them while you still can.
"...delightfully reminiscent of the golden age of that dark weird post-punk." - OSS
"...the stripped-down fever-shivers and uneasy fidget of classic post-punk--think Joy Division, Orange Juice, Durutti Column, etc. But these two Cali transplants can also play the shit out of their instruments." - The Village Voice
10 PM :: Palmyra [Myspace] [Official]
Imagine this: Fuzzy acoustic guitar meets a retro analog synth, jazz drums, a trumpet, and one loud electric guitar. This unlikely, yet aurally pleasing combination produces infectious rock and pop songs.
"100% shameless self-promotion" - OSS
"The City, On Repeat, is a gorgeous set of songs with a warm, homey feel. " - Tandem Shop
Mp3: Suicidal Female Poets.mp3
9 PM :: The Long Eye [Myspace]
Karl Sturk and Patrice Scinta expertly combine finely crafted songs with a gritty, lofi garage sound.
"Karl’s songwriting talent, ear for arrangement and musical ability more than speak for themselves." - OSS
Mp3: Palisades.mp3 (Demo)
8 PM :: Drunken Barn Dance [Myspace]
Scott Sellwood's delightful sometimes solo, sometimes full band highlights his songwriting and always promises a rollicking good time.
"Scott Sellwood, in addition to being a truly sweet dude, is a master of melody." - One Sweet Song
"Drunken Barn Dance evolved from a solo folk project of Scott's into an epic multi-guitar attack band reminiscent of Television, Wilco and the Grateful Dead." - Metro Times
Mp3: A Winter's Tale.mp3
