red Bull

Let's start with the NY-specific press release:

Red Bull Sound Select Presents: New York is a new monthly live music showcase that highlights some of the city's most exciting new artists. The event series, curated in partnership with East Village Radio, Afropunk, Brooklyn Bodega, and BrooklynVegan, will feature one headliner and three local artists on the rise. Each month, the showcase will rotate to a different iconic venue in New York and will introduce an exciting new line up of artists.

The first installment of Red Bull Sound Select Presents: New York will be hosted on Tuesday, February 19th at Bowery Electric [327 Bowery] featuring headliner Hunters and [other] local artists: Justin Dean Thomas, Sky Picnic, and Heliotropes. The 21+ show starts at 8PM. Tickets are $3 and can be purchased at the door.

That's the flyer up above, for the $3, East Village Radio-curated, Red Bull Sound Select-sponsored show. Stay tuned for info on the other eleven NYC shows in the series, including three put together by BrooklynVegan.

Meanwhile, you can actually catch Heliotropes (who also shared a bill with Hunters on a BrooklynVegan bill once), at the Converse presented free gig going down at Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight (2/15).

Red Bull Sound Select is also doing shows like this, with local partners, in four other cities: Chicago, LA, Nashville and Austin. Austin is also where RBSS will present a series of mid-March events that will feature some of the same local bands playing each city, especially bands that get voted in. Justin Dean Thomas, Sky Picnic, and Heliotropes are all currently competing for free plane tickets from NYC to Austin. More info including how to vote and RSVP, HERE.

I much rather have a $3 show than a free one. The free shows attract the scenesters.

3:03 - i'm serious. i don't know their music and I can't remember if they're the ones whose singer is always lying down on the stage... which is a little gross.

$3 is too much. i would go if there is free red bull.

if you don't think it's worth $3, then go for all the free energy drinks you can pocket to sell later on. Those little cans go for $3 at a bar, so one sale takes care of your price of admission, BAM! Then after last call, there's all sorts of fiends on the streets lookin for a little somethin somethin, and you can front them a can to tide them over until they hook up. You will have a friend forever.

hunters sound like sepultura with the addition of a female singer and poppier melodies

If you think Hunters sounds anything like Sepultura musically you should probably get your ears checked. lol

Hunters remind me of a sugar free version of the yeah yeah yeahs.
But they are still better then 81% of most bands.

I think it's worth it. Looks like some good bands played.
