In When It Happens, this kid George from the band Overlord rocks out extra hard. Well guess what? He’s a real dude!
I’ve known George since college, so of course I went to see him play the Mercury Lounge last weekend. It was a blast. Then we stayed to hear the bands after Overlord and they also rocked. Hospitality is a sweet band based in Brooklyn. They have such an original sound and do randomly excellent things like bust out a penny whistle or this mini keyboard instrument that you blow into to play. I should know what that’s called by now.
Then The Bloodsugars came on and they were such rock stars. I can’t get those riffs in “Purpose Was Again” out of my head. They’re down with the 80s synth pop thing. And super entertaining to watch. Here’s Brendan on bass:

Yay! It was a cake of cupcakes! That’s a reason to celebrate right there.
