Radical Dads, Haybaby, Dead Stars, BOYTOY, Honduras
Brooklyn, NY, 11211-4119
This event is all ages
The influence that Brooklyn has on the music we listen to is undeniable. As I take a step away from the hustle and bustle of a work trip I feel compelled to cover what is going on here tonight. As I scour the NYC scene a band with the name Haybaby grabs my attention. As I sit in my hotel introducing Haybaby to you I sense a certain emerging buzz. Spreading like a kindergarten classroom illness, from this blog to many, Haybaby has the genes to bust on the scene.
Haybaby is a garage rock trio that rides on heavy overtones and the vocals of Leslie Hong. Track, "Wash You" is the pick me up off the floor and slap me in the face wake-up call that we all love to be reminded of. This song is a genuine plea for change with the comforting support of rock n roll. Keep it on repeat.
"...Dead Stars have some immediately familiar sounds even on the first listen—Pixies' loud-soft-loud trademark, Built to Spill, Pavement and Hum when they decide to unleash the wall of guitars. Anyone claiming to be a fan of those bands should get this album today..."
BOYTOY is the love child of Saara Untracht-Oakner and Dylan Ramsey (You Can Be A Wesley) and Glenn Van Dyke (Beast Make Bomb).
Honduras has been described as "an incredibly fun live band worth watching watching every second" providing "uncontrollable dancing" and "punky perfection"- Dingus. Four Brooklynites who focus on melody and playing every show like it's their last. Fuzzy/spacey guitars, sing-a-long hooks, and a swinging rhythm section. Influences include The Cure, Los Saicos, Wire, and Jay Reatard amongst ever-evolving others.
