This week started off, well, great. I went and saw a show at the Knitting Factory, on the mother of all school nights, Monday. But, it was an opportunity to listen to Object‘s new works live, catch-up with friends, and then as a cherry on top, reaquaint myself with The Netherlands.
The Netherlands is a power trio out of Brooklyn, NYC. I saw them maybe about two years ago, when the line-up included a female bass player, now changed to a dude on keys.
They were on my 2008 list of bands I totally dug. And I’ve been meaning to see them perform ever since that one show when they had blew my mind, so much so I bought all their cds.
With their own sort of pyshedelic, punk, soulful grunge rock, you might suffer a head or neck injury from head thrashing to their music.
Here’s the video I made of the Netherlands using my Flip:
I took a few shots:
On Wednesday, I had my radio show, Broad Strokes, on WHFR.
This month, I invited Magnetic Island, another fave of mine, to play a live acoustic set and they were freaking awesome.
So gifted, just this week Magnetic Island dropped a demo that you can check out at Cash Music, and you can listen to the Broad Strokes broadcast here.
