Echostream: Echostream is a band that succeeds in creating music that can draw the audience into its world of rich and vivid emotion. Deep grooves, driving guitars, and a dark & beautiful ambience provide a perfectly crafted world for Ryoko’s emotion-injected vocals to thrive in. Live performances are more like theatrical experiences than concerts. Echostream’s ability to connect emotionally with its audiences is the band’s true strength. Their fans come back time and time again for a chance to relive this intense experience. For never having been on extended tour, echostream has racked up a lot of credit around the eastern half of the nation. They have already played for thousands of people at several large conventions and festivals, including Katsucon (Washington DC), Nekocon (Hampton, Virginia), and Oni-con (Houston, TX), and have opened up for international touring acts such as Blood, Anti-Feminism, and Phantasmagoria. The first half of 2009 found the band concentrating on their new album, and in the fall they will be offering glimpses of these songs to live audiences around the nation. Catch Echostream live as they perform in New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Houston. Gold Streets: Combining thick, textured guitar with weaving bass and perfectly shaped drums is gold streets’ specialty. The method of composition varies, but it all “harkens back to the days when 4AD was running things” (village voice). Fast garnering a place in NYC’s musical landscape most certainly unoccupied by others, Gold Streets is fast-paced with occasional moments of dreaminess, familiar and new all at the same time. Be sure to check out their self-released EP “Red” and their recently released debut album “Looks Like Fireflies” (8×8 Recordings). Sky White Tiger: Former member of The Polyphonic Spree and Rufus Wainwright's band, song writer and bandleader SKY WHITE TIGER/LOUIS SCHWADRON has worked with artists including David Bowie, Elton John, Queen, Cindy Lauper, Tony Bennett, Ray Charles, Patti Labelle, Joss Stone, KerenAnn, Guster, The Posies, Sufjan Stevens, The National, Duncan Sheik, Joan As Police Woman, Jessie Harris, Tom Cruise and Oprah Winfrey - Louis has performed on Television shows including NBC's “Las Vegas,” “Scrubs”, “Late Night with Conan O"Brien”, “The Late Show with David Letterman", "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, “The MTV Video Music Awards”, “Austin City Limits” and “The 2004 Nobel Peace Prize Awards” most recently opening US tours for Duncan Sheik and Rufus Wainwright. Dynasty Electric: Dynasty Electric is an electro-rock duo from Brooklyn, NY. Their explosive sound and live show have been buzzing in the underground New York music scene, landing the group a deal with BluRoc Records, the latest venture of hip-hop mogul Damon Dash. Their new album "Box of Light" co-produced with Ski Beatz is coming out this Spring. Dynasty is Jenny Electrik, a magnetic lead singer and theremin player and Seth Misterka on saxophone, electric guitar, and programming. Misterka began his career working with experimental jazz legend Anthony Braxton, and has gone on to work with a number of artists including Hot Chip, Shy Child, and in duo with Brian Chase of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The group originally formed in 2002 when Seth met Jenny at an East Village bar and asked her to play bass his new band Dynasty, originally a free jazz trio. The band morphed into an electro-pop duo following the departure of original drummer Edward Kasparek. Their first album 2004's "Black Box" won critical praise and took the band on tours of the US, Canada, Japan, and Taiwan, also landing them on MTV2, and Canada's Much Music. In 2008 the band reunited, performing a cross-country U.S. tour culminating in a series of performances at the Burning Man Festival, and recorded a new EP "Burning". In 2009, they played the SXSW Festival, opened for the Meat Puppets on a US tour and released several new music videos including "Closer to Contact", a sci-fi epic directed by Josh Chesler and Justin Tyler of Superfad.
This is a show put on by The Deli Magazine, which is the premier indie rock musician magazine in NYC. They always have great bands play, and we're sure tonight will be no exception! Plan on lots of GREAT music!
