For the contemplative: Redhooker

With so many fine musicians in Slow Six, members often dedicate their talents to other ambitious musical endeavours. Redhooker's Stephen Griesgraber, one component of the aforementioned collective, does not stray away from the electroacoustic music that Slow Six fashions. Two years in the making, Redhooker’s “Vespers” is a contemplative and complex follow-up to “The Future According to Yesterday” that leans on the more experimental side of contemporary classical music.
“Trip and Fall,” a cascading piece with prominent strings, made its debut in late 2007 on the group’s MySpace page, granting an early preview of the material. Griesgraber’s strength lies in his ability to breach the excess of instruments and create profound songs with precise tones and mood. On the transformative “Presence and Reflection,” the piece begins with a sparse, tense cacophony only to develop into a beautiful, comforting serenade. Experience Redhooker’s new set of atmospheric tunes on Sunday at (Le) Poisson Rouge. Tickets are $10. - Nancy Chow

NYC Artists on the Rise: The Shake

Recent victors of The Deli’s Open Contest in the Alternative Rock/Metal category and this month’s nominees for the Emerging NYC/NJ Artist of the Month, The Shake shook down Crash Mansion at a semi-secret show on January 5. There was "a whole lotta shakin' goin' on" while the quartet highlighted several top tracks from their month-old release, “The Shake Go Crazy.” Consistently an ear-catching and energetic band, The Shake stood out with their on-stage chemistry, witty inter-song repartee, raucous guitar solos, and rebellious vibe evident in their volatile “Merry Musket,” fiery “Galleries,” and explosive “Timebomb.” An a cappella intro transitioned into a rousing “Your Idols,” that was followed by a galvanizing “Pop Goes the...” The Shake added a bit of disco flare to their penchant for rock ‘n roll, covering only the best, The Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive,” before closing the show with the soulful “Got No Soul.” –Meijin Bruttomesso
