Meet the Brooklyn Band: Dead Stars – Show Tonight! (3/28)

The three J's of Dead Stars: Jeff, John, and Jaye

Dead Stars have been gaining popularity in the four years they’ve been rockin’ and rollin’ around the neighborhood, thanks to energetic live shows and a refreshingly unpretentious approach to making music. Their songs are quick, to the point, and poppy without feeling flimsy. If you check them out live be prepared to get their shout-along choruses stuck in your head for days; the amount of crowd members mouthing the lyrics at any given gig is testimony enough to Dead Stars’ catchiness factor. The trio is made up of bassist John Watterberg, drummer Jaye Moore and lead singer and guitarist, Jeff Moore, who took a break from finishing up the band’s upcoming EP, High Gain, to answer a few questions.

Dead Stars play tonight, Thursday March 28 @ Saint Vitus (1120 Manhattan Ave) 8pm, $10 – with Dichroics & Circle of Buzzards

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Below is info on the current situation at ADOPT NY

Many rescue groups and NY shelters sustained extensive damage to their facilities, as well as many fosters becoming homeless themselves.

So here’s what we’ve been up to at Adopt NY in response:

We’ve developed a plan to assist our 44 rescue groups as directly and quickly as possible, providing them with the two most important needs: new fosters and new supplies.

What’s needed now are supplies — things like mass quantities of food, animal crates, blankets, beds, toys, etc. Using our contacts in the pet industry, we’re going to get as many of these items for wholesale prices as possible, and aim to have everything shipped out and in our rescues’ hands ASAP.

Together with your help, we want to provide the assistance all our rescue groups who so desperately need.
