SeepeopleS w/Stranded with a Kiss and Genitor ($10-$12 | 8PM)
December 9 @ 8:00 pm
7PM Doors / 8PM Show
SeepeopleS is singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Will Bradford’s long time anti-genre cult alt-rock act.
Imagine the grittiest, most ferocious and cherished parts of nineties grunge getting into a good, old fashioned fistfight with the rapid-fire, reckless, black leather ‘tude of late eighties punk at some iconic rock club in Detroit, whereafter both parties stroll into a modern day sunrise, sweaty, bruised, and smirking, with the other’s girlfriend underarm. Look out Ithaca, here comes Stranded with a Kiss.
Singer-guitarist Christian deBrigard is no stranger to the local music scene and has played guitar in several projects in the past but in SwaK has surfaced not only as the mean and dexterous guitar player we already knew he was, but also as a commanding lead singer with smoky, ballsy vocals that beg only one question: what took him so long? Electric guitar comes ripping across the sonic mountain range with urgency as deBrigard’s enviable rock vocal punches and slithers through a tight, driving rhythm section carried by bassist Rob Natoli, a skilled player with a pockets as deep as the knees, also no stranger to the rock and punk scenes in the area, and drummer Jeff Turback, the heavy heartbeat in rock, pop, and new wave bands from the Jersey shore to Ithaca throughout his illustrious career. Look no further for your next favorite power trio; these guys gotcha covered. Pass It On.
Genitor is a four-piece alternative rock band hailing from Cortland, NY. Since 2011, they’ve been writing and performing songs that have won over fans of punk, folk, metal and everything in between. Over the past six years, their sound has evolved into a pop mentality, with a powerful driving force behind it. Their catchy hooks and well-crafted compositions are apparent the first time you listen to them.
They’ve released two ep’s during their time as a band, and recently released a collection of songs entitled “Fossil Dome” that they feel is their best yet.
Genitor’s members include Mark Francis, Matt Barnes, Brent Icenogle and Brendan Rew. They are all veterans of the local and regional music scene. Some of their past and current bands include The Loiterers, The Dead Army, Skuzo, Bent Peg, Pile of Heads and Sanjuro Fields.
