Tigers And Monkeys
Tigers And Monkeys
Melding the sounds of indie rock, blues, pop and garage rock, Tigers & Monkeys is a band from New York City with a haunting southern drawl. In earlier releases, Loose Mouth (2007) and The Animals Will Forgive Us Again (2015) bandleader Shonali Bhowmik (lead vocals, guitar & formerly of Ultrababyfat) who is from Nashville, TN showcased her enchantment with a “dirty city.” Bhowmik’s songs are pages taken from her life in a big city which is all things at once: aggressive, careless, staggering, hypocritical and a tease. The band includes Jason Lam (bass, vocals), Joachim Kearns (guitar), Russ Dungan (guitar, surfer), Antonia Santangelo (percussion, dancing), Anthony Cangelosi (drums) with honorary members Jody Bilinski (drums) and Jeff Sheinkopf (keyboards, drums) filling out the lineup.
Tigers and Monkeys has shared stages with bands like Sleater Kinney, Matt and Kim, Ted Leo and The Pharmacists, The Shins, Love As Laughter, Heartless Bastards and has made videos directed by Fred Armisen (SNL, Portlandia), Mike Luciano (HBO’s Animals) and Joe Mischo. The band’s third full length release Saturday Destroyer (Little Lamb Recordings) which was recorded at Threshold Studios in Manhattan and produced by the legendary Kenny “The Soundman” Lienhardt of the Bowery Ballroom will be available on August 3, 2018.

Adira Amram and The Experience
ECNY Award-winning performer Adira Amram brings her 'Dance Party Fantasy' to Brooklyn for one night only, along with her backup band and spandex-clad dancers. The majestic Heloise will kick off the night, followed by a full-length set of hot beats and even hotter dance moves from Adira Amram and The Experience. So bring your dancing shoes, and leave your inhibitions at the door--it's time to party!

Adira Amram has been performing her sly, sexy and subversive musical comedy all over NYC and beyond. In 2008 she realized that what she really needed was a backing band and dancers. Thus The Experience was born! Since then they have had the opportunity to perform with some of the greatest performers of all time! In 2009 they toured North America with Kid Koala's The Slew and in 2011 made their UK debut at the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival as the house band for Kristen Schaal and Kurt Braunohler'sHot Tub. While in Edinburgh they were invited to perform at the BBC Comedy Presents: Best of Festival Live Show Finale. In NYC they are the house band for Arden Myrin & Lisa Delarios' monthly comedy explosion, The Party Machine as well as the live late night talk show, Night of The Living with Kurt Braunohler. In 2011 they were named Best Musical Comedy Act at the ECNY Awards. In 2009 they released the album Hot Jams For Teens on North Street Records. Adira is currently collaborating with Seattle based DJ, Dynomite D (The Beastie Boys & Kid Koala) on her forthcoming album. Her music videos have been featured on the front page of Huffington Post Comedy, Funny or Die and ucbcomedy.com
Nimesh Patel
Nimesh Patel
Nimesh Patel once fought two girls and lost. At his party, he cried not because he wanted to, but because no one showed up. He's violated all of Notorious BIGs 10 crack commandments. His hatred for weathermen is only surpassed by his fear of cats that shed hair. Lastly, he wrote this on the bus this morning, because that's where his life is right now. When he's not busy crying, he performs comedy at colleges and clubs all over. He is from New Jersey, a fact he regrets mildly. Find him on Twitter @findingnimesh. Please. He needs you.
