After a long two days, and some well-deserved good news at work, I decided to hit the last minute scheduling of moe. at the Brooklyn Bowl.
Brooklyn Bowl is one of my newest favorite places in NYC to see a show. It has a great vibe, great food, and is a small intimate space. Capacity is only 600 people. I can get as close to the stage as I want, should I choose. You can usually find me in the back of any show- I have claustrophobic tendencies in huge crowds (and, ok, need space to dance). But when I have a hankerin’ to get in real close to watch the guitarist’s fingers whiz on the neck of his guitar – I can get easily up there at Brooklyn Bowl.
How to describe moe. to those who don’t know or have never heard them? They are a merge of many types of bands- but one thing is certain, they are Hot. High, high energy. They are incredibly talented-the bassist is solid, the two guitarists play off each other in a game of “I say”, “You say” and the whole band is FAST. Tight, sick jams, great beats, bouncy fun and serious riffs.
As a comparison tool, I try to hear other bands in the sounds of the live band on stage. I came up with this list – feel free to comment.
moe. comparison to other bands:
- The Samples
- A little Derek Trucks
I highly recommend a rendezvous with moe. You’ll be blown away.
