10pm-  Sean Coleman and the Quasars
Genre: Rockabilly, R&B
For fans of: Elvis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Howlin' Wolf

Sean Coleman & the Quasars are notable arrivals to NYC’s rockin’ scene. Though they’ve been kicking around the New York City bar scene for about two years, honing their original-era rock’n’roll offering, they are now coming to the forefront of the city’s greaser subculture. Sean first unleashed his signature howl as part of the Boston scene fronting The Bourbonaires and The Swinedells. He then relocated to New York City to find a killer band: And he got it.

The Quasars rip out primitive, gutbucket sounds rooted in the jump blues tradition, deftly folding in aspects of R&B, Rockabilly, Gospel and Soul. Sean’s performances are that of a southern bible-thumper under the spell of the Devil’s music; he’s got the frantic energy of Jerry Lee and Little Richard and a visceral wail that’s somewhere between Howlin Wolf and Mickey Hawks. Witnessing a Quasars performance is like witnessing an exorcism, and that’s beginning to garner them major attention from the national and international rockin’ scene. With a brand new hot piece of wax ready to release (45 rpm, if you please), they’re definitely a combo to watch.

“Sean Channels the fire that Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis used to spew. He sings with the passion that comes from gospel via the church and early Rhythm & Blues… and it’s about the feeling… Sean’s singing makes you feellike there’s a fiery Sermon going on. There’s the idea that Good and Bad are in the room having a fight, and the
outcome matters.” -Blowfish, via Boston Groupie News

“Sean has a great R&B-styled gruff voice a la (Billy Lee) Riley or Billy Gayle of the Rhythm Kings. He Hollers in fine style with a Chester Burnett style quaver in there too.” -Phil Davies, Rockabilly Hall of Fame.

“Speaking of Little Richard, singer Sean Coleman has a big league Rock N Roll shout that closely approximates that particular idol of his… Coleman shimmies, shakes, and works a room as if it’s the Apollo or Grand Ole Opry…” -Jonathan Perry, Boston Globe

“A growling, howling, badass of a front man.“ -Q Division Studios, Boston

“Sean was just inspiring!” -Boston Groupie News


8pm- Yeti
Genre: Indie-rock / dream-punk
For fans of:  Sleater-Kinney, The Cranberries, Fugazi

Yeti is bass-driven philosophical dream-punk with cute killer harmonies. This New York-based trio reeks of feral femininity, fermenting in the forgotten woods of Staten Island. Their music fuses Sleater-Kinney sensibilities with The Cranberries’ emotional power. Yeti can be found playing at various venues throughout the New York City area, or in very cold, dark, remote caverns from which few have ever returned.


9pm- The Blackberry Brandies
Genre: Americana
For fans of: Rock, Americana, Country Mojo

Bettina Schelker - superwoman, singer/songwriter, political activist and former Swiss National Boxing Champion, with an exceptional reputation far beyond the Swiss borders.

Thomas Baumgartner – rock rebel with over 20 years of international experience in the genre of loud guitar music (Erotic Jesus Undergod, Gurd).

Together they're The Blackberry Brandies. Two musical heavyweights on a common path - a more than explosive combination! As unusual as if Tracy Chapman and Lynyrd Skynyrd would share the same stage together...

Definitely, the Blackberry Brandies are a great (live) band with road dust on their boots and a lot of feeling in and between the lines. The Blackberry Brandies are more of an urgent recommendation to all friends of music with soul, lot of guitar, Americana and southern rock, than an insider tip!

Chords, heavy as a semi-trailer... insistant, snappy as a hot desert wind. Schelker and Baumgartner merge where they come closest to a down to earth heat-shimmering Rootsrock, whose range includes the fragile song as a powerful thunder roll.

A declaration of love - life, certainly, but above all on the myths of this tradition-safe rock.


10pm- Cuervo Jones
Who is Cuervo Jones?
Combining catchy melodies, driving rhythms, and powerful guitar, this dance punk power trio exploded on NYC scene in 2013. Pulling from the best of their favorite bands: the Ramones, Arctic Monkeys, and the Strokes, Cuervo Jones will be in your head long after the last cymbal crash and barre chord have faded out into the night.


11pm- DecaDence
Genre: World/Reggae/French
For fans of: ??? World/reggae/French, DANCING

10pm- Comic Tales of Tragic Heartbreak
Comic Tales’ lead singer, songwriter, and trumpeter Robert Whaley previously fronted NYC rock legends, the Niagaras. With a penchant for interpretive dancing on tabletops and hilariously satirical rants on a broken childhood, Whaley electrified national audiences with appearances on Good Morning America, the Oxygen network, and Fox. The Niagaras were a hugely popular staple of the Manhattan scene for nearly two decades, attracting celebrities, controversy, and packed houses along the way.

Seeking a return to the R&B roots that got him into music in the first place, and informed by an almost pathological aversion to anything post-1974, Whaley joined forces with talented newcomer Aaron Wyanski as pianist and arranger. Along with industry veterans Michael “Miguelito” LaMortĂ© (Mini-King, Grupo Miguelito) on bass and longtime Niagaras drummer Dylan Wissing (Johnny Socko, Novel), the group has crafted an organic, literate, deeply-grooving collection of semi-autobiographical songs.

Written in a tiny studio bursting with 20th Century literature, and inspired by a massive collection of obscure vinyl, Comic Tales of Tragic Heartbreak have managed to create a sound and a show which is both timeless and cutting-edge. The sweat-drenched performances and the rapidly-disappearing ability to deeply engage and entertain a crowd really leave a lasting impression. Sounds like hype, until you experience it in person. 

4pm- Moving Pictures: Hand-picked entertainment on the big screen each Sunday evening at the Way Station.  Always new Doctor Who when it's in season, and often paired with something appropriate (a classic episode featuring the same villain, prior episodes of character's story arc, etc).  Off-season it's favorite episodes from past years, or other tv shows & films, often falling into the sci-fi or British comedy genres.

Look for Rivals of the Peacemaker debut album August 2013.

“Rivals of the Peacemaker layer lush harmonies and foot stomping rhythms over evocative and dark songwriting “ - WLUW

Brian and Yoav went through several different lineups in search of the perfect pocket, and ended up with bass monster Josh Levine locking down the rhythm section with a super solid groove. The Plaine Truth melds classic / hard rock, soul and funk into catchy, intelligent songs that capture the hearts of listeners everywhere. The band recorded a five-song EP in 2008 and is currently gigging around NYC.  A good fairytale is a really sweet thing but there ain't nothing like THE PLAINE TRUTH!

“There's nothing plain about The Plaine Truth. The band has a keen ear for melody and an ability to craft songs that insinuate themselves into your brain and refuse to leave. Alive is a splendid introduction, the sort that will have you checking the band's website on a regular basis to find out when the next album/ep is coming out. Don't miss out on The Plaine Truth.” Wildy Haskell - Wildy's World
