OUT IN THE STREETS MUSIC FESTIVAL – Guide to the Bands (pt. 1)

Get to know some of the artists playing our Out In The Streets Music Festival this Saturday at Brooklyn Fire Proof. Here are just a handful of the acts you can expect to see.

“Psychobuildings is Brooklyn resident Peter LaBier. Unlike so many of Brooklyn’s residents, Peter’s not flannel-clad, unfriendly or a witch. In truth, his music seems to have more in common with California’s oddball set (Ariel Pink, Nite Jewel, The Samps, etc.)…”

“I’d wager that the dudes in Mirror Mirror really dig on Barrett-era Pink Floyd. Their tunes are melodiously parochial and texturally adventurous, a hodgepodge of vibe and technique that owes a lot to the late, Aspergers-afflicted singer and his band’s wayward excursions into pop music. But Mirror Mirror are self-aware cherubs amidst Brooklyn’s recent psych renaissance…”
