This was the first Bands + Brews that took place in our own office space in Brooklyn's Industry City and it was everything we could have possibly asked for. Intimate, laid-back, and dare I say... Lit? Well, it was
lit. With more than enough beer to quench the thirst of the crowd (thank you, Blue Point
) and memorable live performances from incredible young artists, it felt like more of a party than a show. It was most certainly a night to remember.
The evening opening act, Hannah Gill and the Hours
, turned in a performance that was rife with heartbreak tunes and clanking glasses. Gill managed to make our office feel like a hole-in-the-wall jazz club for a few songs. "We have a jazz project - like private events and for swing dancing gigs - and then I babysit as well. Nanny by day, musician by night," Gill explained to Baeble in between songs.
Have a to listen to the opening song of the night, "Austin," and tell us that you don't love it (spoiler alert: you won't be able to, because it's the most catchy, memorable song we've ever heard). And get ready to swoon over the jazzy charisma of Hannah Gill and The Hours.
