TONIGHT’S SHOW (no cover):
- Dan Abraham (the solo adventures of Courtesy Tier‘s Omer Leibovitz) isn’t simply a stripped down version of its louder project. Stripped down, yes. But these songs venture into new territories, wherein Leibovitz’s voice at times calls to mind The Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser or The National’s Matt Berninger and the instrumentation is unsettling at best. Listen here.
- Chain Wave remind us of when Primal Scream stopped fiddling around with techno and got down to brass tacks and rock and frickin’ roll, if you dashed in a bit of BRMC. Their own Ian Jacobs is playing for us tonight. Listen here.
- On Brooklyn two-piece KNTRLR, from their label’s website: “Charles and Michael are KNTRLR, the nasty two-piece responsible for the hauntingly beautiful b-side “Kursk” on their upcoming split 7” with The Big Sleep, which narrates the experience of a submariner writing a farewell letter to his wife as he accepts his tragic fate.” This music is all at once spooky, beautiful, repetitive, soothing, creepy and extremely tense. Their Michael Henry plays for us tonight. Listen here.
- J. Randolph, vocalist and guitarist of Self Help, will appear solo tonight. Would you like to know what his full band sounds like? Then by all means listen here!
11:00 PM — The Kings of Karaoke (no cover):
“The Kings Of Karaoke are the dominant force behind Brooklyn’s sing-along scene,” says Brooklyn Exposed, calling them the “monarchs of music murder land.” New York Magazine named them the best karaoke “For a Party Thrown by Guys So Good at Throwing Karaoke Parties They Do It Every Day.” And that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to accolades and awards this karaoke troupe has amassed.
If you think it’s silly for karaoke hosts to garner so much attention, then you clearly don’t take your karaoke seriously enough. Luckily there’s a cure for that, and it’s every Monday at 10:00 PM at The Grand Victory for the low low price of FREE.
