Grab Bag Special # 2 Featuring NYC Modern Rock Band PILLOW THEORY

PILLOW THEORY is a NYC quartet who delivers a high-powered dynamic sound while successfully genre hopping under the modern rock umbrella (metal, punk, pop, electro). The band has received accolades from Rolling Stone, Village Voice, Yahoo and SONY PSP to name a few. They’ve blazed the stage warming up for TV On The Radio, Living Colour & Ninjasonik.

They collaborated with sonic genius Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies, NIN) for their sophomore release OUTPATIENCE in 2007. With Albini, they were able to manipulate their ever-changing moods to blend a sporadic yet cohesive sound. The album displays a delicate balance between heavy and light with change ups that may seem bizarre on paper, but work eloquently in sound. Outpatience was chosen as one of the VILLAGE VOICE’s “best of” in their yearly Pazz & Jop poll before it was even released.

In July 2011, they self-released their new EP titled MELTDOWN, produced by Slim Willy (Ferrari Snowday, Ninjasonik, LL Cool J) and Kelsey with additional mixing from sound master Ron Saint Germain. This long awaited follow up is a non-stop rollercoaster ride of aural excitement taking the band to the next level sonically and lyrically. This fall, the band will return to the road for their Meltdown 2011 tour!

Musical Artists Include: Pillow Theory, Noah Silver, Sheldon Botler, Ben Fagan & The Holy City Hooligans & Shred Rot!
