Show Review

As you might know, our monthly Bands + Brews Session Series was quite the soiree all summer long, throwing down monthly at Industry City in Sunset Park Brooklyn. The first hint of a nip in the air didn't give us a reason to stop the party, so earlier this Fall we took the series inside Gowanus' classiest venue, The Bell House, celebrating our new home in style, with an intimate evening with R&B superstar Mario, rapper OnCue, and up-and-coming singer/dancer, Kayla Brianna.

Kayla kicked off the night, so we're rolling out her impressive performance first. With a pair of glamorous dancers and glitzy outfits made up of black leather and sparkles, Kayla hit the stage with effortlessly-good dance moves and hyped up the crowd with her oh-so-catchy-and-relatable singles "Work For It" and "Honest." When we visited Brianna in the green room before the show, she proved to be one of the sweetest gals ever as we bonded over our favorite Snapchat filters (her favorite is the dog, a classic!). There was an entire paparazzi-like group of photographers taking photos of her and her girl crew, who were one fierce bunch. And speaking of fierce, walk Kayla and her crew work for it in our newest Bands + Brews Session.

noise for Kayla Brianna! Ever since you went away, I been up late
In the room with the light off, trying to escape
My feelings, boy this feeling
Used to be everything I looked forward to
Nowadays I don't feel like I know you
But tell me if I'm wrong, if so I'll leave you alone
All I wanna know is
Do you remember when you said You'll never leave me, baby
Do you remember what you said It'll always be you and me
Where are you now? Cause I'm right here, boy
Ain't goin' nowhere, boy Where are you now?
But I wish I knew then what I know now
Remember them times you weren't there for a young nigga,
tell me (do you, do you?)
Do you remember the times I was locked up,
you was out cheating, girl? (do you, do you?)
I don't think you realize the ... I be goin' through,
girl, do you, do you?
But since you don't give a ..., here's my middle finger,
screw you, screw you
I tried to give you my all but you ain't want me
cause that sound too much like Ray
And you seen me ball just like Spaulding,
probably thought I was gon' make you my wife
Every night bitches all on me, this lifestyle cost no price
This watch right here got ice
100, Ben Franklin, do no lesser faces
Everything I bought, you can keep that
even though we're separated
Killin' me with these text messages girl,
they seem pre-meditated
Lookin' for a little relationship girl, please don't anticipate it
Cause I ain't comin' back, baby sing it to 'em like
Where are you now? Cause I'm right here, boy
Ain't goin' nowhere, boy Where are you now?
But I wish I knew then what I know now
I wish I knew who you really were Still looking for some answers
For how you treated me baby How could you treat me this way?
Where were you baby? (where were you?) Where were you? (where were you?)
Where are you baby? (where are you?) Where are you? (where were you?)
Where were you baby? (where were you?) Where were you? (where were you?)
Where are you baby? (where are you?) Where are you? (where were you?)
Do you remember when you said You'll never leave me, baby
Do you remember what you said It'll always be you and me
Where are you now? Cause I'm right here, boy
Ain't goin' nowhere, boy Where are you now?
But I wish I knew then what I know now
