What have you been missing? Relive last month’s acoustic rock experience through our MOAR 5 recap below and Zach Andersen’s From Z to A YouTube episode, and make sure to get down to White House Productions on June 24th to experience MOAR 6 for yourself!
Zach Andersen’s extremely inspiring opening set got the packed house going off on the right musical foot with his tongue-in-cheek, acoustic, indie pop.
That Virginia definitely brought the monster rock with crushing riffs on several numbers, looped beats, melodic solos, and South American influenced rhythms. Check out the full pre-show interview and a taste of her live performance.
Ian Biggs was the perfect closer with his salty, lusty, and very catchy yarns about late nights and early mornings after, hungrily leaving us wanting more. You should definitely seek out his next full band performance if you can, but a solo Biggs will no doubt please your ears: MOAR interview and performance clip.
After breaking his neck, all Zach Andersen could do during the recuperation process was play video games and learn to play guitar. Once he was all healed, he jokingly thought it would be fun to write his own songs. Later, this joke turned into a new passion and the formation of The Andersen Brothers. Along with his brother, Eric, they took the local music scene by storm with their catchy, relatable, and nostalgic songs. Their first album, “Unrequited Daze”, was released in 2011 and contained the crowd favorite “However Hard She Tries”. While TABs is on hiatus, Zach continues to play both solo shows as well as gigs with his other band, “The Or Something Like Thats” (or whatever he decides to call them on any given night).
Steph Serenita is a singer/songwriter from the New Haven area that will be gracing us with acoustic originals. For fans of folk, alternative / 90’s rock, and classic rock.
The Hooch delivers fun, memorable sets of unique cover songs & originals, infused with the sweet sounds of guitar, harmonica, and killer vocals.
The Cluster Flies
The Cluster Flies openly claim that they wanted to sound like wet leather feels, and they nailed it! Well, it’s actually some of the most original, raw, and energetic mix of garage, emo, pop punk, and good ol’ indie rock that you’ll see in this area. The Cluster Flies also said that they already sold their souls, so they won’t get any better – see them live now while they’re still in their prime!
