The devastation of Hurricane Sandy hit hard on the east coast, laying a path of destruction that will take decades to fully recover from. The aftershocks were felt all over the nation and many people have stepped up to lend a helping hand. On Friday, Dec. 14, Holy Mountain is hosting a benefit for The South Sound in Brooklyn, N.Y., which was a newly developed music and arts complex that a few musicians put their heart and souls into, only to watch it devastated by the superstorm. All proceeds from the show will go into helping them rebuild their dream and support music in their community once again.
The benefit will include a group of local greats donating their time and music for your listening pleasure, and you will be supporting a great cause in the process, all for a mere $7.
The bands on the roster includes the self-described “shimmery post-gospel” of Salesman, who have a great knack for melodious harmonizing in sync. Little Radar puts together soft romantic undertones, even with a little waltz-inspired rock, while Obscured by Echos will throw in a nice psychedelic trip into the mix. Lastly, Kinky Machine and Summer Swells bring the alternative and surf rock. I know you can find $7 in change under your couch cushions, so come out and support.
Holy Mountain is located at 617 E. 7th St. Cover is $7. All profits from the show will be donated to Un-Flood BK Music. Get a taste of all five bands below.
