Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College to Welcome THE HOLLOWS, 6/21
Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College presents The Hollows on Saturday, June 21, 2014, 524 West 59th Street, NYC, 10019. Show is at 7:00pm and doors open at 6:00pm. Free admission but reservations ensure priority seating. RSVP at www.thehollowsonline.com.
Brooklyn-based roots-rockers The Hollows are that rare thing; a strictly democratic ensemble of multi-instrumentalists; a freewheeling hootenany of a band. With no frontman (or six frontmen), everyone writes and arranges material, creating a diverse and uniquely blended sound. A veritable junkyard of mandolins, banjos, guitars, accordions, horns, harmonicas, and various other musical doodads are in constant rotation. Their live show is a high-octane, unpredictable barn-burner. You can expect a lot of foot-stomping, over-the-top toasts to life and death, and a good bit of sweat. Put yer dancin' shoes on.
Since releasing Belong to the Land (2011), The Hollows have released a self-titled EP (2012) and a live compilation, Neverending Show (2013), as well as music videos for their songs "Poor Eyes" and "August" (both in 2012). "Poor Eyes" was also featured recently in the soundtrack to Bob Giraldi's "A Poet Long Ago," which is currently making the rounds at film festivals. The band has received accolades such as "Artist of the Month" (The Deli Magazine), "Critic's Pick" (TimeOut NY), "Best of This Week" (Oh My Rockness), "Best of SXSW" (The Wild Honey Pie), and "Best of CMJ" (WNOW 92.3 FM), as well as rave reviews from The Huffington Post, CBS Radio, Relix, My Old Kentucky Blog, BaebleMusic, and more. With over a hundred shows under their belts and a new full-length studio album scheduled for production this summer, The Hollows show no sign of slowing down in 2014.
