Early evening summer show at The Bridge – 6pm!
Some friends – Devon, Namiko, and Ben – met in England, doing mellower solo-ish projects. Then two of them came down from New York on a tour – The Zolephants & Woodsy Pride – and met up with Dev & her friends who play in New Boss (band-dad guitar guy Thomas, keyboard singer Nick, drumming Parker, and bassy Scott).
The NYC-based protoplasmic Zolephants encapsulate a witty mix of old school rock ‘n’ roll, spy-themed electric-kool-aid, fuzzed-out melodic bounce, drones & chanting, all while oscillating that eternal wave on homemade surfboards. Nami Coffee is on analog bass synth, B. Copperhead on guitars, and Bill Bowen on drums. Some of these band members collaborate on occasion with luminaries DJ/rupture and Arto Lindsay. The Zolephants have definitely been around a few New York City blocks, and around the world, for that matter. Last year, The Zolephants opened for Cindy Wilson (of the B52s) at the Bell House in Brooklyn, and this past August, they performed a live show on WFMUs Janky Ray’s Radio Riot. They recently released their debut album, Islands of Neptune on Fuzzy Warbles Cassettes.

Woodsy Pride formed in Boston back in 2000, and have been based in Brooklyn since 2008. “Perhaps the greatest live band in NYC.. There’s a connection between the musicians in this band that runs deeper than your average band. Together they create a highly spiritual music. If you can picture Will Oldham fronting the Dirty Three, then you’re getting a basic idea of their sound, but that’s only scratching the surface.” – The Revue
