LS & JC at The Tank

JC Cassis performing at The Tank

JC Cassis and I performed at The Tank on Wednesday as part of the three-day ITPalooza music festival.  We played our dance-pop songs to an intimate crowd and managed to get rock the house despite all the technical difficulties.  I also got to see my friend Natasha from Arizona who came to the show.  We hadn’t seen each other since high school!  Thanks to Mike Rosenthal for the space and to Roy Vanegas for organizing the whole thing, as well as to everybody who came out to support us.

Here’s our set list from Wednesday night (click on the links to hear/download recorded versions):

Ari Joseph and Steven Litt LIVE at The Tank

My ITP classmates, Ari Joseph and Steven Litt performed live at The Tank in Hell’s Kitchen on Thursday night.  Steven performed on the CrudBox, a mechanical drum machine of his own creation.  Here is a YouTube video of Steven performing on the CrudBox last December at the NIME Show at Exit Art.  Meanwhile,
