[8.25.12] The Lower East Side, Manhattan, NYC: The area was covered with Detroit blood last night… No gory or bloody situation here; just a good dose of that hearty, Detroit-style musical flavor wafting throughout the neighborhood.
PLAYGROUND DETROIT caught two musical acts, Detroit-based Patrick Davy & The Ghosts, and YOU. (which is based out of Brooklyn, NY, but members are originally from Detroit.) The evening of music started out at Piano’s with Patrick Davy & The Ghosts. If you aren’t familiar with this group yet, here is your cheat-sheet:
Patrick Davy and The Ghosts are a three-piece group from Detroit, MI. Their music is influenced by Radiohead, Led Zeppelin, Ryan Adams, and Crosby Stills and Nash. Whether they are performing electric or acoustic, the music remains a blend of crafted, artistic melodies and powerful fundamental rock grooves. The Ghosts have a number of recordings and are now expanding beyond their hometown.” -VIA BandSoup
The group show featured art from Nadav Benjamin; Jeremy Dyer; Derrick Cruz; Jonathan Goldstein; and Gabriel J. Shuldiner. The show was beautifully curated; all of the artwork featured was in black and white. YOU. wrapped up the evening with a electric performance which perfectly suited the space, strobe light, cords, and all.
This “Electro/Synth punk” trio, including ex-Detroiters Trever Millay and Brad Taormina take ‘noise’ to the next level. Their dark and dreamy sound is nothing like the former group profiled, but there is that ‘je-ne-sais-quoi’ Detroit influence reflected in their music. YOU. is currently on the independent record label Pendu Sound Recordings.
