From sweet and smooth classics, to new names, to old names with new music...the focus here, is to shine a little light on some damn fine music.

I'll find it. You can listen, review, or tell me I wouldn't know good music if it kicked me in the ass. I personally don't give a shit.

River City Extension @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar

Crossing three bridges through two states and three boroughs wasn’t nearly as stressful as it could have been. After finding that on-street parking was readily available, well it seemed like the evening was off to a good start.

The Brooklyn Night Bazaar takes place on Friday and Saturday nights in a converted warehouse in Brooklyn, New York. The surrounding neighborhood is full of similar places where people hang in bars or cafes, and the music is live and loud.

The Bazaar opens to low lights, arcade games, handmade crafts, vintage clothing, pop-up food vendors, and a stage where live music is played all night. Though the ventilation could have been better on a hot and humid night, the Bazaar was an interesting place to spend a Saturday night.

River City Extension took the stage a little after eleven. The Toms River, NJ based band has gone through some personnel changes since the release of their critically acclaimed first full length album, The Unmistakable Man, but with founder Joe Michelini still writing and fronting the band, the core sound remains the same. Defining that sound which can pull in roots, rock, calypso, folk, and other influences, is the hard part. River City Extension have been described as a band who couldn’t decide what to play, so they play everything. It’s not far from the truth.
