Next Electric Avenue Show: Destroy Babylon and The Frightnrs on 10/13/12!
The next Electric Avenue show coming up this Saturday, October 13, 2012 is "A Night of Reggae" featuring Destroy Babylon (roots reggae from Boston) and The Frightnrs (rub-a-dub from Brooklyn) at Characters NYC in the heart of New York City! Both bands are nothing less than stellar--and you'll be able to catch them at the incredibly low price of $5.00 (someone just asked me, "what can you do in New York City for five bucks?"--well, you can see two amazing reggae acts perform live and up close!). This is going to be one of those gigs that you'll wanna kick yourself if you miss it...
Electric Avenue is brought to you by my fellow New York City-based ska blogger Duff Guide To Ska (Steve Shafer) and I to support the ska and reggae scene and most importantly, bring ska and reggae music back to Manhattan, where it was born with The Toasters, Beat Brigade and N.Y. Citizens in the early 80's. Electric Avenue is a non-profit venture--all of the cover charge at the door will be split equally between the bands. We don't plan to take a cut, nor does the venue, so you can be assured that if you come out to see a show, the money you pay will directly support the band's playing that night.
If you don't know about Destroy Babylon, you should check out my fellow ska blogger, The Duff Guide to Ska's review of their latest album, Long Live the Vortex, here. Check out the band performing my personal favorite "DB Inc" and a smoking version of The Clash's "Wrong Em Boyo."
The Duff Guide to Ska review of The Frightnrs' EP can be read here. Check out a fantastic dub version of "And I Wouldn't Tell You This" by Agent Jay of The Slackers.
Hope to see you at this show!
