I had the pleasure of seeing Bushwick bands Pass Kontrol and Lady Magma outside of the neighborhood on Thursday night, at the Monkey House in Winooski, Vermont, as they started their tour of the Northeast. I’ve seen both bands several times (it never stops being crazy fun!), but it was great to hear the feedback of all of my VT friends!

While in the Burlington area, I was also able to catch another Bushwick band, Kegs of Acid, at Radio Bean on Friday night. Despite a shortened set due to time constraints, and an opening band that I personally found to be the musical equivalent of nails on a chalkboard, I was impressed with what I heard of this three-man instrumental band. Rather than tell you more, I encourage you to check out Kegs of Acid for yourself at The Bushwick Starr this Friday with Pass Kontrol. Hope to see you there!
