This event is strictly 21+ and there will be a bar.
BODY LANGUAGE (LIVE)
Busy saving the city from the brick wall arm crossing and the casual head nods, Brooklyn's own Body Language has risen from the DIY venue basements armed with the kinetic dynamite you would expect from the name. Their original music was born from weekly dance party remixes crafted by Grant Wheeler and Matt Young, and graced by the soul stylings of Ms. Angelica Bess. Their efforts, which illustrate...d their arrival into Brooklyn, were delivered in a five track EP called “Speaks".
Since the EP release, Body Language has been touring with Zero 7, Sia and burning holes in New York City dance floors appearing with the likes of Passion Pit, Little Boots, La Roux, School of Seven Bells, Theophilus London and Jimmy Edgar. This beat-driven crusade continued with an highly anticipated appearance at SXSW 2010. Listeners should also expect some wonderful contributions from the trio with the hit, “Work this City”, appearing on Ghostly International's Nocturnal Suite, a free four-part 'Influences' DJ Set, as well as a “Speaks” Remix Compilation, featuring the likes of Toro y Moi, Yes Giantess and Shuttle.
Brett is a band from Washington, D.C. that throws in dance beats, synths, old drum machines and hazy gazy guitars to make a yummy batch of pop songs.
YOUNG RAPIDS (LIVE)
Exhaustion is part of what inspired Young Rapids to get together. Bentley and lead singer and keyboardist Dan Gleason held office jobs for several years before burning out. After quitting their gigs and taking time off from the D.C. area, the pair regrouped with lead guitarist Nick Martin to write songs and search for “something a little bit more meaningful than the quest for money,” says Bentley. Bassist and drummer Colin Kelly joined the group about a year later. Today, Young Rapids seems to have found a more fulfilling way of life. “I don’t make a lot of money, but I’m so much happier now that I’ve reorganized my priorities,” Bentley says. The band’s gathering swell of melodic guitar lines and forceful drumming channels The Walkmen. (via City Paper)
