On the Rise at LPR
On The Rise at LPR is a music series dedicated to showcasing up and coming bands from the New York City area. LPR is committed to finding some of the best local talent and exposing our patrons to bands that we truly believe in.
Great Caesar aims for the heart with a vulnerable blend of brass, voice, and indie-rock, drawing from acts like Arcade Fire and Beirut to create music that confronts the things that really matter: love, legacy, and the complexity of human relationships.
The NYC band’s 2014 debut phenomenon, Don’t Ask Me Why, combines art and activism in a video that juxtaposes the civil rights movement of the 1960s with today’s fight for sexual equality. Supported by figures as varied as Russell Simmons, Deepak Chopra, Arsenio Hall, and Superbowl champion and LGBT advocate Brendon Ayanbadejo, the video has already challenged hundreds of thousands to take a stand for love and equality.
The band self-released their eponymous EP on October 7, 2014; it was produced by Griffin Rodriguez (Beirut, Modest Mouse, A Hawk and a Hacksaw).
Great Caesar is comprised of John-Michael Parker (vocals, guitar), Adam Glaser (bass), Tom Sikes (trumpet), Mike Farrell (guitar), Thomas Stephens (drums), and guest vocalist Niki Morrissette.

Stolen Jars is the indie music project of Cody Fitzgerald and Molly Grund. Inspired by acts as diverse as Sufjan Stevens, Elvis Costello, and Dirty Projectors, the music is a vibrant mixture of looping intricate guitar lines and floating melodies all brought to life by a live band featuring Elena Juliano, Connor McGuigan, Matt Marsico and Tristan Rodman.
Fitzgerald and Grund are building off the success of Stolen Jars’ self-titled album released in 2011. The single off that album, “Driving,” was featured in an international Apple iPad commercial and was awarded Song of the Week by Alt Mag.

Haybaby is a band of total babes that play honey-ass heartbreak crooning sometimes screamy sludgy pop & slop rock that will make you have some feelings. They are “weird and magnetic” and “heavy as shit,” according to Time Out NY and some guy on the internet.
