The MOSCOT Shops were THE place to be this past weekend as we bid farewell to summer with a weekend of awesome music! Teaming with Extended Family, our "Farewell to Summer" weekend of music started Saturday at The MOSCOT Gallery & Music Space at Orchard Street with indie pop band "I Am Lightyear," who led by songtress Lauren Zettler, got the crowd ooh-ing and asking for more. Next up, NYC band "Caged Animals" hit the stage, taking the crowd on a ride with their cool blend of chilled out, yet upbeat indie rock. It's a good thing we have a lot of floor space, as we danced the afternoon away!
The fun continued Sunday as fans migrated east to The MOSCOT Backyard at MOSCOT Court Street for sunshine, free Brooklyn Brewery beer (for those 21+) and sweet sets by indie-folk acts, "Swear & Shake" and "Aunt Martha". The boy/girl band duo of Swear & Shake went first, harmonizing sweet tunes backed by banjo, guitar, harmonica, and the stomping beat of their feet. Aunt Martha played a mix of softer, straight-to-heart songs and guitar-driven, rock-inspired jams.
We loved partnering with Extended Family, which was born out of the desire for Family Records to work with artists who aren't signed to their label, in a way that felt positive and fun for everyone involved.
Thanks to everyone who came out for our last summer weekend, with a special shout out to the folks at Extended Family/Family Records and Brooklyn Brewery!!!
Stay tuned for info on our next event during CMJ week!
