This event is 21 and over
Texas King formed in 2013 and before long, began earning a reputation for their high-energy rock shows. After tours of Ontario and the east coast of Canada to support a debut EP, October 2017 saw the release of their anticipated full-length album Circles. The albums lead single “Boomerang” generated attention at Canadian radio, most notably at Toronto’s 102.1 The Edge, and led to an appearance on Global TV during their Canadian release tour.
It’s often said that Texas King is best experienced when seen, not just heard. Now armed with their hook-filled debut, the band is ready to make their mark in the world of rock music - one rowdy club at a time.
Eli and Kenny are a band and they love music! TOP nachos is the band- they wrote an EP, and ever since they just can’t stop writing music. Music, like songs about catching grandma smoking that green, and other songs about tinder and selfies and driving and donating to the bands. Punk is the music and 2 is the number. Music! What else can ya say? Other than they’re from Queens/Kingston, NY and are on King Pizza Records. There’s new music too! A 7” split with The Rizzos and their first LP which was just released on September 27! It’s called DANK SIDE OF THE MOON and it has songs on it! They have been on the road many times to bring the music to the people, and as long as the people want the music, TOP nachos will be the music that the people want.
The Grasping Straws
Psychedelic art rock. The Grasping Straws have been consistently performing in and around New York City since 2012. In July 2014, the group went on their first national tour with fellow NYC-based artist Cannonball Statman. The band's founder, Mallory, has since gone on to tour Europe, Canada and more of the US with different incarnations of The Grasping Straws to support the release of the band's debut album. The Grasping Straws continue to tour and perform locally around NYC, while working on writing and recording new material.
"Frontwoman Mallory Feuer blends an otherwordly, raw, bluesy edge with the fearlessness of pre-meltdown Courtney Love, both vocally and guitarwise, instantly putting this group on the map as one of New York’s most distinctive, individualistic, exciting new bands." (New York Music Daily)
"The Grasping Straws drifted into slow, drum-marched songs that, particularly with frontwoman Mallory Feuer's drawn-out and bluesy vocals, recalled the lo-fi glory of early Cat Power. Taking their time rather than rushing towards easy shock, these tracks intrigued with their very patience and calm and, perhaps most importantly, were ultimately moving, their tumbling quality enabling the audience to both engage and reflect."
