The Tall Tall Trees Announce November 20th Fundraiser in NYC


The Tall Tall Trees will be celebrating their Kickstarter Fundraiser at The Mercury Lounge on November 20th starting at 8 PM. Harlem folk rocker’s goal is to raise $12,000 to record their sophmore release. The band features Mike Savino on vocals and banjo, Kyle Sanna on guitar, Benjamin Campbell on bass and Mathias Kunzli but this is not your traditional folk group. Through the use of effects pedals on banjo and amplification they have managed to achieve a fresh sound that incorporates a mix of American Folk and rock elements with Brazilian and African music. The Tall Tall Trees musical chemistry and energetic live performances allow them to re-invent their songs on a nightly basis. They have spent years collaborating with such diverse acts as Moby, Yo Yo Ma and Vieux Farka Toure and can be compared to fellow NY acts such as Vampire Weekend and Dirty Projectors.

Tickets to The Mercury Lounge show are $10 and are available HERE

Buy Deer Tick’s Tour Bus!


Bored of your four door sedan or fixie bike? Feel like you need an upgrade? You can now place bids for Deer Tick’s tour bus and roll in style like the eccentric indie folk rockers themselves. The bus nicknamed “The Flagship” for being what took the band across the country in their 2009 tour promoting Born on Flag Day will be auctioned off in order to raise funds for the Pakistan flood victims.

In July, heavy monsoons in Pakistan caused mass flooding making over 21 million people injured or homeless. Frontman John McCauley states, “The situation over there is so critical, but it seems very few people are aware of it. Maybe it’s a stigma with that part of the world, I’m not sure. Either way, we feel very strongly that people should be more aware of the situation and hopefully we can help with that.”  The tour bus will be up for auction on ebay for  three weeks and Deer Tick will also be taking donations at the merch table for each date of their upcoming tour.

The ebay auction page for The Flagship tour bus can be viewed HERE and to learn more about the Pakistan floods or to make a donation please visit http://oxfamamerica.org/
