Friday 7/13 - Tea Leaf Green aboard The Jewel
Radio Tragedy! is an eclectic mix. Part Modest Mouse, Wide Spread Panic and Grateful Dead; it’s worth a listen. Mixed within the kaleidoscope of sounds, Tea Leaf Green still finds time to return to their jam-band roots, able to drop a beat that will make any hippie wiggle. -Colorado Music Buzz
To mark SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER’s 35th anniversary, we screen the original (rated R—not appropriate for a younger audience) and celebrate its legacy with a pre-film set by TRAGEDY, the Tri-State Area’s #1 heavy metal tribute to the Bee Gees. “Through some combination of a successfully executed musical adaptation and a stage show that rarely ceases to exceed its own standard of ridiculousness, Tragedy manage to dwell in the realm of novelty while far exceeding their worth as a concept … the aesthetic is somewhere in between the flamboyance of the disco-era Bee Gees and the flamboyance of mid-eighties hair metal, with some extra flamboyance thrown in for the sake of flamboyance.” (Tiny Mix Tapes) Tony Manero costumes welcome.
We are running air-conditioned, bathroom-equipped, sound system & TV-rockin’ party buses from NYC to and from shows including FURTHER @ Bethel Woods, Aerosmith & Cheap Trick @ Izod Center & System of a Down/Deftones @ Jones Beach. Get all of the info right HERE.
