Sat. Dec. 16th – Gutter Bar – BKLYN – w/ Mr. Payday



A great Sat. night of power pop and a little shoegaze with
Scott Janovitz (from Boston)
“…echoes ’70s rock and pop: John Lennon, Big Star, the Raspberries, Harry Nilsson, Mott the Hoople and, in particular, Marc Bolan.”
Jake & Elizabeth
“Folk horror meets shoegaze…like the Jesus & Mary Chain or the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club writing a concept album based on the Stephen King/Peter Straub collaboration The Talisman.”
