9 Thirdstory
THIRDSTORY combines the talents of Richard Saunders, Ben Lusher, and Elliott Skinner. Influenced by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young as much as Amy Winehouse, this trio has been delivering consistently stunning performances at NYC venues such as the Cutting Room and Rockwood Music Hall. Their eclectic sound is both relatable yet not simply defined: their live shows mix harmonious reimaginations of songs by the likes of Jimmy Cliff and Sam Smith with delicately crafted, soul-tinged originals. As the trio trades verses, instruments, and harmonies, it's easy to see that THIRDSTORY is much more than a vocal group - it's a collective of three of the most distinctive voices in NYC soul music today.

With unchecked charisma and a near-mythical dedication to pouring every last ounce of themselves into their performances, Brooklyn mainstays Chamber Band have ascended to indie rock notoriety in a scene already notorious for being pretty far out there. Gorgeous guy-girl harmonies ascend over spirited beats and bass, then descend into agonized groans for love won and lost, all with enough magical underpinnings and references to geek arcana that you'll be knowingly nudging your dance partner between tunes. The perfect scene for music nerds (and nerd nerds) who, above all, just want to dance.

11 The Met
The Met is a three piece rock n' roll band from Brooklyn, New York. Dejected descendants of Neil Young and Crazy Horse, incongruent cousins of TheVelvet Underground, we play a brand of music that is seldom heard in the night clubs or on the airwaves. It's like a conversation, jazz with a backbeat, a trip through the ancestral picture gallery of your dreams. We don't really know of a scene that we'd like to be a part of, or what clothes we'd like to wear. We're too distracted by one manic obsession. Even today, after all the genres that have cruised up the Infobahn, we are still willing to cling to what we know to be true: Rock n' Roll. It feels good? Do it. It might sound a bit naive. Well, that's electric music for you, you're flying without a license. Over the edge, on the verge, love us or hate us - this is our music.
