Every once in awhile it’s a good idea to see something that is totally out of your field of expertise. I maintain this view because I feel that this makes you a better rounded music fan and in the end someone who can truly compare the things that are interesting against that which is not so much. We all know those folks who stick to one thing and one thing only and since I have never been that way, I like to indulge and challenge my senses for music appreciation whenever possible. That being said when a publicity contact of mine asked me to come check out her clients band who were playing at Piano’s NYC I wasted no time in planning out the evenings fun. The Perfects hail from Baltimore and are more of an Electronic Rock act and in some sense sound like classic The Cure and even some Duran Duran and I was intrigued since both of these groups were guilty pleasure of mine when I was an up and coming musician myself.

One of my favorite tunes from the bands latest release is the song “The End Of Us” as I really enjoy the groove and vibe of the track. Despite the atmosphere of Piano’s NYC being so very dark I shot the band doing this tune and you can enjoy it by clicking play below. Comments of a topical nature are always welcome and by all means please do click around some of the other offerings on the Official YouTube Channel for PiercingMetal.com
Here’s a shot of the guys after the gig.
Here is our good friend in publicity Miss Shukmei Wong. Her WeRoqq PR firm currently handles all of the bands media interactions and happenings.
After the show was done, the room quickly changed into an almost dance club as a pair of deejays setup their Apple computers and iPods along with a light effects machine.
Sorry I could not get any better photos but the lights were all over the place and there were lasers also. It was just a mention to showcase how quickly a NYC venue can become something else. Everyone had fun tonight for sure. Tomorrow it would be back to the Metal business as usual but I was sure glad to have taken the side turn and I encourage you to do the same every now and again. Don’t be one of those folks who always say that nothing interesting is happening and never braving the true musical heartbeat of the city you live in. You will thank me later I am sure.
