From The Epochs, Bluebrain is born - Live Review

Ryan and Hays Holladay (formerly of the Brooklyn pop/rock band The Epochs ) played their "goodbye NYC" show at Pianos this past Monday under the new moniker Bluebrain. The two brothers - who are moving to Washington DC - had residency at the Lower East Side venue; performing every Monday this month to showcase their electronic rock songs off of their newly-released LP, “Soft Power.” Bluebrain smoothly transitioned from mellow, melodic songs like “Each Time I Think” to downright body-jolting jams like “Ten by Ten”. Athough there are only two of them onstage, the brothers managed to achieve an impressive, almost majestic sound weaving their voices with looped instruments like drums and violin and other electronics. With each song, they cranked out more and more energy and showcased some serious musical skill. When the set was over, one person in the audience yelled, “Three more songs!!” - there's a fan who knows how to make a bargain...

The Theatre Shows: March 4, 5, and 6 with Black Taxi, The Shake + more!

On March 4, 5, and 6, an imaginative all-ages concert series presented by CitizenMusic and called The Theatre Shows will take place at The Players Theater in Greenwich Village. Each uniquely themed evening, headlined by gritty, dance-rockers BLACK TAXI (picture below), will showcase some of NY’s finest rock artists. Night one is the Masquerade Ball when Black Taxi, The Shake and Old Wives set the standards high for performance and costume. Prohibition Night, cast with Apollo Run, and Milo and The Fuzz, will expose the seductive and the bootlegger. On March 6, the finale of this creative series, deemed PoMo Night, challenges the imagination and takes a walk on the wild side to the sounds of New Madrid and Philly's Toy Soldiers. Between sets, F. Michael Haynie will entertain with acoustic sets, while attendants enjoy healthy juice-bar refreshments contributed by Liqueteria. This series is sure to be a memorable spectacle for the eyes and ears. No tickets will be sold at the door, they can be bought here. -Meijin Bruttomesso
