I was not sure whether to be excited or afraid about meeting the bands playing
our upcoming showcase at Bar Matchless.
last Greenpointers showcase, I got pressed up against a sweaty man in polyester shorty-shorts, and calf-length socks, who was sporting an alto saxophone. It was in a narrow hallway.
His band had just finished playing a set where the lead singer repeatedly expressed his love for weed and Taylor Swift.
My interview with the bands below might operate as an advance warning of what to expect Friday night, or enticement to attend. Ideally, it is both.
