NYC Shows

Both of the Brooklyn shows were great! Aaron played with great heart both nights, especially on the first night after he discovered the pickup on his guitar went out on the ride into the city and sang without a PA for around 50 people. This was truly impressive and greatly appreciated by both the crowd and residents at the Stolen Sleeves Collective, many thanks guys!

We fixed the guitar for the second show and the PA worked great, Chris Antal got in on the Attica!Attica! set with Aaron and added in his voice and smooth guitar lines to complete the excellent musical evening.

All of the bands at the second show donated their part of the door money to World Bicycle relief and with additional donations, we raised over $300! It is inspiring to have such great bands, Bomb The Music Industry, Summer People, Bridge & Tunnel, The New Dress, Ghost Robot Ninja Bear, Stolen Parts and Rejouissance do such a great thing for the cause. I must also say that all of the bands impressed with musical talent and style, if you get a chance to see any of them you will not be disappointed.

I would like to thank everyone who helped us and made the NYC stay so memorable, Thanks especially to Matt, Claire, Jay, Melissa, Oscar and Al for letting us stash our belongings with them and sharing their homes. We could not have done this without you.
