WARREN AMERICAN LEGION SHOW, JUNE 25, 2011
After the Crossroads, we took part in probably one of the best concert series around Central Jersey! The Warren American Legion has proved to be the BEST ALL AGES INDIE ROCK VENUE AROUND! Thanks Shannon Dillon & Doll Eyes Productions and Joe Allocco for putting this together! We seriously had the BEST time EVERRRRRR! This has got to be the hardest we have rocked out yet! And not to mention , we have made some great new friends and had the pleasure of sharing the stage with some other awesome bands!
If you have the chance , you guys NEED to check out the following bands:
Built on DIY ethics and deeply rooted in punk rock aesthetics, Maya’s Ruin is a punk band from North Jersey. Hell bent on strengthening the NJ scene and relationships with other local bands who share the same sentiments based on unity, honesty, truth and respect..we came to rise up and take NJ local music back to the forefront…you’re either with us or against us.
On their new full length “The Price of Silence”, Gentleman Thieves have written a rock album rooted in the underground and polished with solid songwriting. The band spent over a year writing, rewriting, and constantly challenging themselves to balance their influences. The shades of punk and hardcore are still there, but they serve as a foundation for nods to 60s rock, 80s post-punk, and modern indie.
Gentleman Thieves hasn’t lost a step in their energetic and engaging live shows. They have already started playing out, sharing their new sound and new outlook with audiences. With upcoming print features and a developing web presence, the band is poised to grow. Look for “The Price of Silence” on iTunes and at the band’s shows.
The American National Flag Commitment is a neo-punk crossover band bringing with it an eclectic group of musical influences. This mash up of different styles and tastes leads the band to cross new boundaries in music and have a sound unique to itself. This group of prep students may seem gentle and kind hearted, but the music shows the true angst and pent up punks inside.
Pyroclast is New Jersey’s state of the art rock band. Formed out of jam sessions in the fall of 09 the band is eruptive and adaptive in nature with a rhythm section that can dominate the foreground and leads all too happy to pocket. Pushing and pulling between the pummeling drums of John Roccesano, Jonathan Wohl’s deep bass grooves, Joe Galuppo’s explosive presence and the searing guitar tango of Andrew Reynolds and Max Feinstein, Pyroclast is the result of individuals with chemistry creating their own intense brand of charismatic rock with a decidedly funky aftertaste.
Although they are did not supply music for the event, they did however supply some badass fashions! Our guitarist, Avi can be seen sporting their “Sight” tee (can be purchased here) !!
Labyrinth is a D.I.Y. company established in New Jersey to provide creative and unique clothing to the public with great quality for an affordable price. Labyrinth is inspired by the idea that life is a labyrinth. All new s
shirts are printed on American Apparel tee’s with supersoft inks.
EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS NIGHT WAS AWESOME ! THANKS TO ALL WHO CAME OUT , THANKS TO THE OTHER BANDS FOR PUTTING ON THE MOST BADASS SHOW IN CENTRAL JERSEY! We hope to play more shows with you guys again, very soon !
Justina, Avi, Ryan, & Mike
