Last month, our friends at Cutty Sark
invited us to capture an evening of insidious happenings at Brooklyn Bowl
as part of the inaugural Cutty Sark Presents Series
. There was booze, there was bowling, and most importantly, there were bands. Incredible bands, actually, each bringing their own unique offering of electric energy to the stage.
One of those outfits was July Talk
; a blistering, confrontational rock and roll outfit from Toronto lead by singers Leah Fay and Peter Dreimanis. On stage the two are manic and mysterious...whatever
relationship they have with each other is front and center. They are tense, sexual, angry, and insanely joyful all at once. "We try to base our music and our show on confrontation", Peter explained while lounging in the lanes before the show. "We're really comfortable within that confrontation and we're not afraid to push the audience outside of their comfort zone". Adding, "Really, we just want to feel like the stage is sitting in the middle of a hurricane". To that, we say mission accomplished.
Cutty Sark is gearing up for another 3 band offering of music next Tuesday June 30th. Small Black, Widowspeak, and Eternal Summers are slated to take Brooklyn Bowls stage as part of the latest Cutty Sark Presents. Get tickets HERE
