Stranded In Stereo Club Night

Stranded In Stereo is having their first ever club night next week in NYC, maybe you should go and check it out. Here's a briefing on the bands that are playing:

SIS Club Night – Wednesday, February 13th
at Club Midway (25 Avenue B) NYC
F or V to 2nd; F, J, M, or Z to Delancey/Essex


The Red Romance
Featuring former members of Ambulance LTD, this New York based five piece are getting ready to take over the world as they’ve gone on tour supporting The Killers, and been mentioned on Entertainment Weekly’s Pop Watch blog. The band will be at SXSW this March, previewing material from their debut full-length which will drop in June.

Apache Beat
Apache Beat are a five-piece from NYC that play partly-cloudy pop, synth-wave style. This punk-ish band comes armed with a kind of melancholy edge, and it's powered by the ominous alto of singer Ilirjana Alushaj as she sets the tone for the Beat’s dark melodies, forlorn bass-thumps and murky keys.

The trio had their beginnings at college in Boulder, CO, but they've since settled in Brooklyn where they've become part of an exciting circuit of new bands like Yeasayer and MGMT. At first I simply described the band as "weird shit," but realizing that wasn't very effective, I settled on something that made much more sense -- 25th century folktronica. These are the tunes that will get Buck Rogers on the dance floor.

Peasant, the musical alter ego of Damien DeRose, was created when the small town of Doylestown, PA provided him with the seemingly perfect series of experiences to create an entirely new breed of songwriting and musicianship. Having drawn comparisons to acts as diverse as Elliott Smith and Simon and Garfunkel, Peasant creates his own beautiful and unique style by finding comfort and satisfaction in the mostly dismal environment surrounding him.
