The Brooklyn What
The Brooklyn What are a rock n' roll band from Brooklyn, NY. Their first album, The Brooklyn What For Borough President was recorded in a few hours and released on their own Pozar Records in 2008. The Gentrification Rock EP was released in 2009 in response to the Atlantic Yards Project. South Brooklyn Singles EP was released in 2010, recorded in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. The BKW have brought their live shenanigans all over New York City and beyond, playing with acts such as H.R. (Bad Brains), Joe Jack Talcum (Dead Milkmen), The Men, Mischief Brew, The Scofflaws, Japanther, Murphy's Law, The Shirts and Laura Stevenson and The Cans. They are currently in the studio recording their second full length album at Contintental Studios in Long Island City, Queens, slated for an early release in 2012.
The Harmonica Lewinskies
Hailing from New England, Texas and a two thirds of the tri-state area, The Harmonica Lewsinskies are creating a forceful southern delta formula. They have produced a brand new New York saturated sound. Now playing in the lower east side and brooklyn, The Harmonica Lewinskies have traveled down the wayward and through the wild frontier to play at a venue near you.
New Atlantic Youth
New Atlantic Youth is a power trio of native New Yorkers swimming through the streets of the Gowanus. Guided blindly by the music, they mix up a medley of sweet and sour-coated rhythms and verses.
The band began as a musical partnership between Ian Elkind and Dan Fogarty at LaGuardia High School in 2004 and continued throughout their separate matriculations via the emailing of song demos and infrequent jam sessions over school holidays.
In 2009, Ian and Dan invited fellow local musician Jesse Katz to become the band’s drummer thus solidifying the group’s powerful, rhythm-driven honey and vinegar songwriting style with Katz’s frenetic, yet rock solid, drumming.
On June 12, 2010, New Atlantic Youth played their third show at King Killer Studios and released their first record, New Atlantic Youth EP. New Atlantic Youth gave out and digitally released their second record, Gowanus EP, on January 28th, 2011 at release party held at King Killer Studios. New Atlantic Youth is currently working on their first full-length album to be released in Spring 2013.
New Atlantic Youth combines the dynamics of early 21st century post-hardcore with a myriad of big sounds that will have you banging your head, swaying your body, and dancing until you fall over
