You Scream I Scream + Berth Control + Alyson Greenfield + Seth
Thu, July 12, 2012
Doors: 8:00 pm / Show: 9:00 pm
You Scream I Scream is at its core a three-piece band with distorted bass guitar and vocals, Rhodes and synth, along with floor tom-driven drums and big cymbals. The music’s unique fingerprint is part Talking Heads in its beats and the lyrics’ sometimes dark playfulness, with Floyd Kellogg’s vocal stylings—bariton signing and yelling contrasted with “Bitchy girl” backing vocals—and stripped-down instrumentation can be reminiscent of Morphine or Soul Coughing. “Bug in a Light,” the band’s debut album, led to several catchy music videos shot by Brendan “Spookie” daly in Hartford, CT and on Nantucket, landing spots on MuchMusic’s “The Wedge”, MTV, New York Noise and Billboard.com. When not busy designing and painting murals everywhere and recording/producing fellow bands at their studio in Connecticut, You Scream I Scream plays high-energy, loud, electro-grunge shows around New England and New York.
Berth Control is an American rock band from Brooklyn, New York. They just released a new EP—Only Songs—an album produced by Jack Dishel (Moldy Peaches guitarist). Alyson Greenfield experiments with pianos, guitars, atoharps, synthesizers, glockenspiels, chord organs, and beatboxers, and has been recognized by publications such as Paste, Relix, Beyond Race, The Deli, Beatcrave, and more.
A Great Big Pile of Leaves Record Release Show + Sainthood Reps + Young Statues
Fri, July 13, 2012
Doors: 7:00 pm / Show: 8:00 pm
$10.00 - $12.00
Brooklyn-based trio A Great Big Pile of Leaves originated in 2007 when guitarist/singer Peter Weiland and drummer Tyler Soucy took time from their prior projects to start writing material together. The first six songs came together as the self-released EP ‘The Fiery Works,’ which the duo put out as a free download on the band’s official website. As word spread online, the band’s fanbase grew – along with Weiland and Soucy’s excitement to get back to recording. Since then, they have released one full length album and several EPs. Their performance at the Knitting Factory will be in celebration of their newest release, ‘Making Moves’.
Sainthood Reps is comprised of Derrick Sherman of Brand New and Francesco Montesanto of Wee Hounds. Their sound has been described as “delicately atmospheric and progressive yet rather heady indie rock.” Full of swelling guitars, intricate vocal melodies, harmonies and introspective lyrics, Young Statues is evidence of a group of musicians who have honed their skills and made a record to be revered for its beauty, tact, and honesty.
