    Friday night was a big night for the New York music scene, with big name acts floating around all over town. We decided an old favorite deserved our attention, so we shuttled off to Williamsburg to groove to the laid back rock of The New Year, with support from Dirty On Purpose, and relatively new act Tre Orsi.


    Tre Orsi


    First to play, the boys from Denton: Tre Orsi, who played an energetic and rock-heavy set despite the thin early evening crowds. The New Year's Bubba Kadane has been producing the band.


    Dirty On Purpose


    Next Dirty On Purpose spun their usual brand of shoegaze, coupled with their sense of humor, to warm up the growing crowd.



    The New Year


    Finally, as the crowd started to pick up, fans new and old heard the former Bedhead members take the stage and play a solid set of their typical thick, deft indie rock constructions. The New Year, the brainchild of the Kadane brothers, slowly gained more friends as live support... and the dynamic live show goes to show that bigger can be better. The New Year is out now on Touch & Go Records -joe puglisi
