NYC's infamous Piano's turned their back room into an acid rock, psychedelic funk show for emerging, self-produced rockers Color Tongue this weekend.
This show was intimate. When I say intimate, I mean the only people there were my friends and I, the bartender, the tech guy and the other bands' members. I honestly dug this more than I thought. Not only was there tons of dancing room, which I am a big fan of, Color Tongue had me feeling like I was one of their friends by doing things like shouting out their inside jokes during musical interludes.
Opening up for Color Tongue was the band Robot Jurassic who annihilated their set with pure, raw energy and musical precision. Once Color Tongue got up to perform, it was clear to me that this group belongs on a big time stage ... in the daylight, maybe surrounded by a beer garden? And of course, a place with lots of dancing room.
Their debut album just dropped this past summer on Soundcloud. It is a trippy musical journey that is comparable, in my mind, to Vampire Weekend on shrooms. One of my favorite tracks from the album is their record 'Sprouts'.
