For most New Yorkers, this past MLK weekend brought with it an extra day in which to play, while still paying tribute to the great Dr., of course. Here at Baeble, the scheduling miracle meant the chance to seize on the opportunity to have ourselves the dirtiest of weekends...though, it's probably not what you think. Sad to say, none of us slogged off into the country with our significant (or not so significant, as I believe the term generally applies...) others. Instead, we rounded up our trusty production crew, fired up the cameras, and captured an incredible performance from one of the filthiest bands going these days. My oh my did we have a down and dirty time at the 92Y Tribeca.

To say that The Heavy specializes in producing ginormous sounds is a bit of an understatement. Unfortunately, that also makes the immensity of their sound almost impossible to describe. Just know it's big. But theirs' is also a well-oiled practice in musical schizophrenia. R&B, Soul, Funk, Punk, Rock...it's all in there, coming together in the kind of rich, robust, and outlandishly cool musical flavor that's built for the dance floor . All apologies if the cameras start to shake a little over the course of this performance. It's impossible to resist. - David Pitz
