- California songwriter Jerry Joseph will be playing without his Jackmormons (the backing band that usually accompanies him everywhere). Here’s a video of him playing all by himself in Harlem a few years ago. We expect to hear both Jackmormons and Stockholme Syndrome songs, just raw and stripped down. Listen here.
- Brooklyn alt-country outfit City Walls Autumn Falls have tight male / female harmonies, rootsy appalachian instrumentation, soulful ballads and the occasional bongo. Related project Skinny Leather Ties will play tonight. Listen here.
- The Trembling Turncoats are reuniting for a rare performance tonight. They make guitar-driven powerful rock in the form of smart pop songs, something like Built to Spill meets Guided By Voices but a little proggy, with occasional ballads and a lot of quirk. In their time together they made three albums and you can listen to all of them here.
A NIGHT OF BANSHEES returns to The Grand Victory! DJ Christian Serramalera spins Industrial, Nu Wave, No Wave, Goth and all the best of Siouxsie and the Banshees while you dance with your knees locked together and your arms waving ghostly like the sad broken black-hearted misunderstood creature that you are.
Also, performing late night for free as part of the Banshees night:
- The Mystic Underground write “pop songs for the disenchanted, disillusioned and disenfranchised. they are songs for the broken-hearted and desperate. songs that celebrate life, love, death and everything in between.” We’d call it new-wavy electro. Listen here.
