Come join Saratoga’s own, Angels on the Fourth in celebrating the release of their debut EP, “Breaking Skin”. Also performing this evening will be local legends, The Black Ships, Brooklyn powerhouse, The End Men and Schenectady noise machine, Machete.
Brand new and eager, Angels on the Fourth harken back to the 90’s alternative scene. Inspired by equal parts punk and stadium rock, the band delivers hard hitting music with infectious hooks. Each member of the premier five piece is stage seasoned from previous projects. Deriving the name from a transcendent experience the lead singer Kane had with a bat in a haunted hotel, the band is poised to make their presence one you won’t soon forget.
Local act, The Black Ships perform a blend of post-punk, alternative and new wave.
The End Men were created in Brooklyn in 2010 as a core two-piece with an extended family. Composed of Matthew Hendershot (guitar and vocals) and Livia Ranalli (drums, percussion and vocals), and currently featuring Matthew Elia on saxophone, most listeners are surprised to find that the powerful sound The End Men produce is created by such a simple arrangement. With raw, rasp-soaked vocals, the multiple amp guitar-split to give the illusion of bass, a rock solid drum pocket peppered with found percussive elements, all accented by searing sax, the band rides a wave of dirty blues rock and vaudevillian stomp.
Hailing from Schenectady, NY, Machete performs a blend psychedelic garage pop and lo-fi.
Ages: 18+ (note: there is a $5 surcharge for attendees under 21)
