Crazy & the Brains Video Release Party
Crazy & the Brains is the brainchild of Chris Urban and Jeff Rubin – two punks whose previous bandmates bailed on them, leaving them with a guitar and a stolen (err appropriated) xylophone. In the most punk of punk spirits they made do with what they had and forged on creating a new band and a proving that doing whatever you damn well please will always be where it’s at. Recently they enlisted brothers Brett and Lawrence Miller on bass and drums and rounded out their band and their sound going from their anti-folk roots to a newer blast-core sound (two genres I believe they invented). If you haven’t seen these guys live you are doing your self a disservice cause they bring the party where ever they go. They’re like the Atlanta of New Jersey (if that makes any sense).

Brett Davis performs comedy under the guises of his many twisted characters, live and on his public access variety show The Special Without Brett Davis. He was the winner of the 2015 Andy Kaufman Award and was one of Comedy Central’s “Comics To Watch” in 2015. He co-hosts the monthly extravaganza erroneously titled The Macaulay Culkin Show at Shea Stadium in Brooklyn, and the monthly Lethal Lottery at Over The Eight. He was behind the infamous #SmithGate incident on The Chris Gethard Show, Adult Swim, MTV’s Weird Vibes, New York Noise, The Best Show on WFMU, numerous music videos and his film BANANAZZZ.
He has also written many, many fake OKCupids.

High Waisted is a NYC based surf band with pop sensibilities and an affliction for rock and roll. Every show is a party. Lo-fi fuzzy bass, reverb drenched guitars and radiant harmonies mesh to create the melodies of your wave-crashed daydreams. Fronted by Jessica Louise Dye, and backed by three long haired hunks, her quirky 60’s garage rock aesthetic is re-imagined from the nose of a surfboard making High Waisted feel like a summer’s dream. Still new to the scene, this group has quickly caught the attention of the blogosphere with their “incredibly solid, sunny pop songs and well-written vocal hooks. Dye sings with an easiness that disguises how technically demanding the parts are. Translation: girl can sing, and she does,” (Brooklyn Vegan).
