Music on Bay
Attention Staten Island hip-hop fans, this is not a drill. Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson will be in da club making appearances at a pair of island liquor stores this upcoming weekend.
Young Lucid, Staten Island’s hip-hop wunderkind, is part of this Friday’s SI Performing Arts festival in an event called the “Stories of Staten Island Concert Series.”
Staten Island pop-punk trio, Everything Ever, is performing at Flagship Brewery this Friday, April 3rd.
Even after being spotlighted in The Advance’s “Best of Staten Island: Cover Bands” poll last year, there’s a good chance you haven’t heard of The Flesh Junkies. The zombie punk cabaret outfit is one of the island’s most intriguing acts in years. This Friday, March 25th they’ll be performing live in the Mezzanine Lounge of the St. George Theater.
At only 17 years old, hip-hop artist, Young Lucid, is introducing himself to the music scene in a big way.
‘The Defectives’ is the new project from Avon Junkies front-man Adam Tilzer, as well as members of The Washington Riot, and The Best of The Worst. The singer describes the new group’s sound as Rock and Roll with a punk influence, a departure from the brass-heavy Avon Junkies sound.
Creating an upbeat atmosphere and covering everything from Wu Tang to Good Charlotte, Love Tap energizes fans with a huge stage presence and interesting transitions. The band is also sure to please because of their fun and diverse set list. “We don’t discriminate against any music genre.” Explains singer/guitarist Nick Bove, “Our sets are comprised of rock, hip-hop, pop, alternative, and even some popular theme songs!”
