Here we are in the dog days of summer – it’s hot, it’s muggy, and we’re all banjo-ed out. We need some cool, refreshing, regenerative ROCK & ROLL, heavy on thirst quenching GUITAR RIFFS.
Back in April, our Brooklyn compadre Jonathan Byerley (who also releases Cohen-esque songs under his own name) brought his rock outfit Plates Of Cake into the XPN Performance Studio before their set at Pi Lam‘s annual Human BBQ all-day music extravaganza.
Byerley and co. mean business; they set up and launched into their set. The resulting 7 songs are lean, tightly played jams, perfect for driving around in your imaginary (or real, you could have a real) convertible, top down of course.
Let’s indulge in a little musical vacation with Plates of Cake before we have to go back to the real world.
