February 17, 2019 - New York

Gabriel Royal Age Limit: 21 and Over Bandits on the Run is Brooklyn's very own criminal whimsy ring, composed of cellist/badass Bonanza Jellyfish, guitarist/fool Roy Dodger, and player-of-toys/clairvoyant Clarissa. The balance of three big personalities is the bedrock of their unique live act, with an eclectic array of tunes original and stolen (all honed by years of busking in NYC's subway) which range from peppy and off-kilter to downright dreamy, all tied together by their signature three part harmony and quirky stage antics. Listen and you will be whisked away, finding something old, something new, and a heart warmed between the two.

Popgun Presents: Harlem - Baby's All Right
February 19, 2019 - Brooklyn

This event is 18 and over Harlem is the combined efforts of two songwriters, Coomers and Curtis, who grew up together in Tucson, Arizona. After spending some time playing in various punk bands Coomers relocated to San Francisco, and Curtis kicked around for a bit in Nashville. Aimless. And bored. Coomers soon re-joined his friend in Tennessee, and the two formed a band of their own. They performed their first show as Harlem in a basement in Chattanooga that had a bunch of dogs in it. Trying out a few more locales before landing on a home base, the duo spent some time in Los Angeles, Oakland, and Portland sampling the sublets and shitty jobs made available to them as they hopped from place to place until, one ill-fated day, Curtis fell into a clearly marked construction site ditch and broke his arm, which led them to seek out permanent lodgings in beautiful Austin, Texas.

Kill Paris - Mercury Lounge
February 21, 2019 - New York

Age Limit: 18 and Over Corey Baker, professionally known as Kill Paris , is a multi-instrumental producer from a quiet town in Indiana, USA. Picking up guitar at the age of 15, the musical journey began and soon enough Corey's life was devoted to the art of sound. From there, he took on learning piano, bass and percussion to soon call himself a well-rounded musician. Over the next decade, the Kill Paris project came to fruition naturally - the world of electronic music always sparked something in him. Corey got certified in Ableton Training, where he would teach one on one production lessons and hold seminars while simultaneously working on his artistry. A righteous move to Los Angeles sealed the deal, launching his career in 2012 under Skrillex's wing with free projects available and officially under the name Kill Paris. And just like that — a signature sound was created — effortlessly and tastefully done. Corey's unforgettable keytar makes his live performances an extraordinary experience. His sense of humor and genuine attention to his fans coin him as "the world's friendliest DJ," and his objective to bring a sense of well-being and security to the dance music community has ma...

Lush, shimmering melodies á la Dead Meadow and free-flowing grooves… with the full force of fuzzed-out stoner rock riffs, all coinciding organically. Impressively, King Buffalo's focus extends beyond composition and into the technical realm; Orion was recorded entirely by the band in the very same rehearsal room that played host to the songs' creation." – Sludgelord "The question of how… heavy psych upstart trio...

Through February 23, 2019 - New York

Video Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qvDP-KJLdI How can the art of opera relate to you? Maybe your experience has been dressing up nicely to attend the Met in New York, or seeing an opera at Milan’s La Scala. Maybe it seems like something foreign and exclusive to the wealthy, or simply old-fashioned and too difficult to understand. Voice artist Ju-eh and composer Hwarg present a brand-new work with powerful singing and delicate electronics that makes the art of opera directly relatable to your emotions and experiences: The Living Dying Opera. In our fast-paced, technologically saturated world, we are surrounded by 'micro-dilemmas’: I am in the subway and someone next to me is so smelly! Should I stay, or get off the train? My alarm rings and rings and I snooze and snooze; should I wake up, or sleep for 2 more minutes? I have had 9 cups of coffee already; should I have the 10th to make it an even number? The fundamentals of opera are drama and bel canto (beautiful singing). Ju-eh, who has studied opera for over a decade, dramatizes his personal dilemmas through voice. Hwarg, an expert in electronics and sonic arts, creates an immersive and intriguing sound world... (read more)
