The Owl Mag went to the Hamptons for the Escape 2 NY Festival where we picked up a few lessons, scrapes and some bruised hearts all in the name of rock n’ roll.
Van’s House Party with Pissed Jeans, Screaming Females, Fucked Up, & Cro Mags left us with bruises that were extremely, outrageously, probably-shouldn’t-go-into-work-with-this-kind-of-wound EPIC.
Bird of Youth’s Beth Wawerna has been involved in New York’s music scene for over a decade, but it took her years to get up on stage and reveal her considerable songwriting talents. We caught the band’s CD release show for their excellent debut album, Defender, at Brooklyn’s Rock Shop.
Basically, refer to this list if you want to know every cool, new band that’s out – well, not every, but most of them.
