Event Recap: TuneCore Live NYC @ Pianos 2/29

As our beloved New York City-area artists and TuneCore Live goers know, at the end of February (Leap Day!!), we switched up locations and took our talents to the legendary Pianos in the Lower East Side neighborhood of Manhattan.

During a time of extremely high rents and unfortunate turnover in the NYC music community, we were saddened to see the original home of TuneCore Live NYC, The Living Room, closed its Williamsburg doors in late 2015. However, after just one event, we know that Pianos will serve as an awesome place to have TuneCore Artists, staff and fans gather for our future events.

Helping us bring our first NYC event together was Swisher Sweets, Mirrored Media, CeleBuzz and World Arts – and for them we are thankful! Local indie acts Surf Rock is DeadPaperwhite, and Andy Suzuki & The Method brought the tunes for what would be a pleasantly diverse collection of music over the course of the night.

SRID

Up first was Brooklyn-based trio Surf Rock is Dead. Don’t be fooled by their name – the reverb soaked garage vibes that these guys brought to the stage served as a reminder that upbeat, surfy rock music has not gone out of style.

Paperwhite 1

Following SRiD, brother-sister duo Ben and Katie Marshall (joined with new keyboardist Lauren) Paperwhite brought the dream pop power! With Ben managing drums and production, Katie was free to dazzle the crowd with her performance abilities and voice – and she didn’t disappoint.

Andy Suzuki & the Method 2

Closing out the night was the well-traveled and undeniably entertaining Andy Suzuki and the Method. Andy and his band crooned through songs that spanned his career as a songwriter, throwing in the occasional cover that kept the crowd engaged. A lot of energy, a lot of jamming, and a lot of interaction with the audience!

Paperwhite is a brother-sister duo based in Brooklyn. They bring the familial vibes and a lush dream-pop sound to the indie scene. After releasing their debut EP Magic in 2014, Paperwhite garnered attention from music blogs across the world. Check out their latest single “Unstoppable” from their next EP, due out in Spring of 2016!

Andy Suzuki

A true performer, indie singer/songwriter Andy Suzuki has been singing before he could walk. He credits his upbringing in the culturally diverse Washington DC for providing an expansive soundtrack by which he was inspired. Andy Suzuki (and his backing band, The Method) have shared the stage with Ringo Starr, Joshua Radin, and Marc Broussard.

 

Surf Rock is Dead

Kevin Pariso and Joel Witenberg make up the intercontinental Surf Rock is Dead. Don’t let the name fool you – hailing from Chicago and Melbourne, Australia respectively, SRiD plays beach-soaked fuzzy indie rock that’ll make you want to move your feet and catch some waves, even if it’s February. And the people of the internet agree: all four tracks from their latest EP (plus one more!) charted in the Hype Machine’s Top 25! Check out their single “Never Be the Same” below.
