Hey, what is going on in Brooklyn these days? Another venue we played in over the past year and enjoy going to has closed, and that’s about the sixth time it happened in recent months.
First Glasslands (where we played a year or so ago) closed to become Vice Magazine owned (they also took Death by Audio), then Spike Hill (where we played a few weeks prior to its closing) is shut. Then more recently I go to Brooklyn Night Bazaar, only to find the next week that BMW is buying that space and thus that space – which was a great setup – is now gone, and then the other day I end up going for a beer in Trash (where we also played a few months back) and find out that’s closing in a couple weeks. Don’t forget Goodbye Blue Monday (where Bridget’s other band played prior to its closing). That’s six venues, gone…… am I missing something here? Yes, I know some new ones have come up since, but not as many.
Anyway, end of rant, bring us some new Brooklyn venues to play (or Queens for that matter!). The person on the image below is not the one ranting by the way, but here’s a pic from our Spike Hill show.
The wait is over. Big thanks to everyone who checked out our first EP, New York EP 5 which was released in 2014 and had some amazing reviews such as these – we’ll be reaching out to you soon with the 2nd EP, The Long Hot Winter. The tracks on the EP are as follows:
1) Hotel Mirror
4) The Things We Do
EP Release show coming soon, stay tuned.
P.S.: This came out about a year ago exactly – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3iKXf7_Nio
Apologies for the lack of updates in March and April so far, we’ve been hibernating from the cold. Actually that’s only partially true. We’ve made a few changes to the line up, we’ve put together a bunch of new songs for our 2nd EP and already perhaps ready to make a 3rd?! Promise its worth the wait and the many dark blurry nights will be worth it. Sunlight coming soon.
Thanks for those that didn’t mind it being 2 degrees outside (minus something with the wind) and checked us out at Spin NYC last Friday with our new line up (4 piece on some, 5 on others)! We swapped instruments around, I believe that makes Bridget now the keyboard, viola, guitar player for instance.
We played some first timers and upcoming 2nd EP tracks. Set list was: Sunsetting, Effectual, Automated, Hotel Mirror, Redesign, Bullet Time, Supercooler, Bad Friday
Here’s a couple of rough mobile pics, cheers.
See if you can spot the difference.
