Chumped / Jeff Rosenstock / Chris Gethard @ Suburbia - 2/6/16
Chumped are sadly no more, but before they broke up, they went out with two sold-out shows at Bushwick DIY spot Suburbia earlier this month. We caught the final one (2/6), which also had Jeff Rosenstock, comedian Chris Gethard doing a Smiths/Morrissey covers set (with Mikey Erg on drums and Jeff Rosenstock's bassist), and Adult Dude. Pictures are in this post.
While we'll miss Chumped, we're already excited about Katie Ellen, the new band from singer Anika Pyle and drummer Dan Frelly. They've got two upcoming shows at the moment, both with cool lineups. First they play Aviv on March 11 with Bellows, The Max Levine Ensemble and Thin Lips (tickets); and then they play the NYC stop of Slingshot Dakota's tour on April 1 at Aviv. That one's also with For Everest and White Pisces (tickets). Anika also plays a solo show on 4/2 with Laura Stevenson, Chris Farren and Crying.
