Music lovers gathered Monday night at the Studio in Webster hall for a spectacular lineup of music including Bow Ribbons, Lady Lamb The Beekeeper (@ladylambjamz), and The So So Glos (@sosoglos) hosted by yours truly, The Wild Honey Pie, Future Sounds, and others.
Bow Ribbons took the stage first and serenaded the crowd with their blues inspired, soulful melodies. The duo’s set was a simplistic pairing of guitar and voice that sang modest yet reflective lyrics. They ended the set accompanied by the harmonies of their friends on vocals and bass, which filled the room with tranquility.
Lady Lamb The Beekeeper
The audience was silenced at the first note sang by Aly Spaltro aka Lady Lamb The Beekeeper. Her first song gripped the audience with its lyrical intensity. She held her banjo without playing it, building tension in the room as her voice pierced the audience. Throughout her set, it was as if she was toying with the audience, singing playfully then in seconds, tightening her chords ferociously. Her music forced the audience to go through her journey, and by the end of her set, every soul was walking willingly. Watch videos from her set here.
The So So Glos
The So So Glos is what happens when a Brooklyn band is actually born and raised in Brooklyn. What ensued after The So So Glos took the stage was pure raucous and contagious chaos. During “Lindy Hop”, singer Alex Levine encouraged the audience to dance, or at the very least, just run in place. His chiding worked as it resulted in an explosion of movement (by Manhattan standards) to match the wild spirit of the band. Their incredible set was a time machine that took the audience to garage of their favorite neighborhood band.
