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..."
Friends since childhood, Patrick Phillips (vocals/guitar) and Tyson Moore (lead guitar) found each other again in a Brooklyn basement where they began writing much of what would become Honduras' early material. Inspired by late 70’s punk, but mixing in aspects of garage and indie, Honduras played Brooklyn’s DIY venue scene tirelessly and garnered a reputation for amazing live performances, with comparisons to bands like Sex Pistols and Buzzcocks. Josh Wehle (drums) and Paul Lizarraga (bass) round out the band’s signature polished edge. Their more recent writing has included elements of krautrock and psych to their already energetic tracks for an intellectually developed sound. While picking up additional attention from serious tastemakers like Rolling Stone, NME, Noisey, Impose, and Fader, the group has shared stages like Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg with notable acts like Interpol, Blur, Silversun Pickups, Metz, Fidlar, Twin Peaks, Drowners and the Kaiser Chiefs. Honduras' song Paralyzed has been in rotation on Sirius XMU throughout the past year as well as various college radio stations. The band started national touring in 2015 supporting Oberhofer and have since supported other notables such as Sunflower Bean, The Helio Sequence, Mothers, and Methyl Ethyl. In June of 2016 they will be on a North American tour with legendary Brooklyn DIY punk band The So So Glos. Honduras is currently supporting the release of their latest EP, Gathering Rust, which premiered on NME and Noisey and has garnered critical acclaim.
