Last week I got to spend my Saturday night surrounded by some great people and even better music. Sure Sure with supporters Plastic Picnic and Wilderado wrapped around to Williamsburg, Brooklyn to play venue Music Hall of Williamsburg for Halloween weekend. The bands delivered some incredible music to the crowd that left me quite astonished. The show they put on was just so well produced and was so good for just an indie band barely making it in this scene.
Indie band Sure Sure got alternative underground band Plastic Picnic to open for them for this specific date. Although this band [Plastic Picnic] hadn’t been touring all the dates with Sure Sure and Wilderado, they are definitely to be noted when discussing this show. Plastic Picnic, for being a band with little to no releases, proved themselves to be such an interesting band. The band have a unique guitar sound that is intricate and interesting compared to other alternative-music sounds, the band matches this with a deeper vocal composition which is uncommon to hear against the chorus pedal on a guitar. The band has a remarkably unique sound to them but it’s not the only thing that caught my attention. The band had such a good stage presence. With their involvement in the crowd, you could tell the band is filled with people who care for the music and for those who support their dream to become something. Check out their photos and their links below:
The next band to find their way onto the stage with rough low-lighting was Wilderado. I got the chance to speak with the band in a personal interview before the show, I can’t wait for you guys to see what the band had to say when talking about the future of the band. The idea of an album release from these guys is so exciting to be discussing, especially after seeing what this band had to offer for us last Saturday. Wilderado are the perfect mixture of indie and rock with an almost country/blues touch to the vocal structure of the lead singer Maxim. It’s something I have hardly seen a mixture of in the indie scene but I personally love the band’s sound and I think they are going to be blowing up on their first album which is in the making. Wilderado were another band that took me by surprise this night as I didn’t know what to expect but I was blown away by what the band had shown us that night with their musicianship. Stay tuned for the interview here at ‘The Reclusive Blogger’ and check out the photos I got of their set below.
The last band of the night to come out for the show was Sure Sure. If i wasn’t already blown away by the other two acts, then Sure Sure had definitely done it for me. The band has a fascinating and distinctive sound to them. Sure Sure has a total indie rock vibe to them following suit to the aesthetic of the whole show but the way they also connect these enthralling psychedelic synth and keyboard sounds to mix with the delicate guitar that is so prodigious was something that caught my attention instantly. The guitar is something that has to be noted as the guitarist was someone who pulled the band together with the complex yet captivating sounds he produced. The riffs of the guitar were out there when it comes to something that is delicately crafted and given thought to. The way the band connected the guitar, at times, to the synth was interesting but the idea alone of the skill level of the guitarist is something that must be noted. This guy seriously knows what he is doing, the guitar is absolutely one of the best concepts of this band. To tie it together, the band had a great image and too small of a following for who they are. Sure Sure is another band, with their first album release, who are going to be blowing up the scene. The band is just simply so talented and already mesmerizing attracting large crowds. I can see such a bright future for this band and can’t wait to hear and see more.
