Last night I was lucky enough to see Birdmonster at the Mercury Lounge in NYC. And although I was expecting one good show, I definitely got more. These four guys really love to rock out onstage. Opposed to a forced rockstar-styled leap into the air or mindless guitar thrashing, you could really feel the music that they played. With each song, Pete, Zach, Justin and David put their all (literally...there was so much sweat to prove it) into the show. What makes Birdmonster interesting is the fact that no matter how hard these guys rock there's still a softness to the music. Perhaps it's the lead singer's voice or maybe it's the addition of instruments like the keys or mandolin. Whatever it is, Birdmonster is a group to look out for.
Here's some pics from the show taken by yours truly.
The band's new album, From The Mountain To The Sea is set to drop on Aug. 5. In the meantime, you can catch up with the guys on their blog.
