Anni Rossi
Anni Rossi
Anni Rossi is an American singer, songwriter and producer from Minnesota, currently living in Brooklyn, New York. She is notable for playing an electric-viola that was handcrafted from a tree branch by former Swans percussionist Thor Harris. Rossi adopts modern guitar and bass techniques and applies them to this instrument, as well as traditional viola styles. In recent years her music has evolved to incorporate elements of RnB and electronic music.
Tatters & Rags
Tatters & Rags
"If you take your indie honky-tonk with a dollop of droney postpunk (and really, who doesn't?), then head to Park Slope tonight for eclectic local outfit Tatters and Rags." -- TIME OUT NEW YORK

"...the real draw here hails from, you'll never believe it, Brooklyn. Tatters and Rags deliver a batch of baroque country that catches you off guard. In a good way. hitches baroque pop with country." -- L MAGAZINE

"A lo-fi twang experiment with tinges of psychedelia, they play pastoral sea-side songs layered in textures of feedback, accordion, and violin. A group of scholars, history buffs, [and] international trouble-makers." -- TASTY WORLD

Tatters & Rags have been playing since 2008, at times being a drone post-punk folk band, other times being a sweaty, whiskey-fueled electric honky-tonk band. Fans of the band state that their eclecticism is part of their charm, and it's always accompanied by a frenetic energy that makes them one of the most exciting live bands in New York City.

The Piggies
The Piggies
The Piggies are a bunch of NYC scene veterans who have kicked around in dozens of bands including the Little Killers, the Sea Monkeys, Wighat, Sato & Jonny, the Haney Brothers, the Poolside Cowboys, Holy Crow, the Underthings, the Dirt Cheap, and more that they don't remember (and neither do you). Posessing an extreme distaste for show-biz hustle and self-promotion, but a non-negotiable need to roll & rock, the Piggies can be found playing out in various NYC-area houses of ill repute on a regular basis, putting pretend rock and roll bands half their age to shame, and occasionally opening for touring acts like the Detroit Cobras, Barrence Whitfield & the Savages, the A-Bones, Mr. Airplane Man, and so forth. Their cover of the Rolling Stones' "Parachute Woman" was issued on a 45 as part of Norton Records' Rolling Stones covers series, on the flip side of LaLa Brooks (of the Crystals) doing "Play With Fire". Full-length album coming soon!
