About This Event
Hello Mary, Catcher with Been Stellar [Ages 16+, Doors Open 8pm, $10 Advance, $15 Day of Show]
Hello Mary is an alt-rock trio out of Brooklyn, NY. Formed in 2019 with guitarist/vocalist Helena Straight, bassist Mikaela Oppenheimer and drummer/vocalist Stella Wave– all still under 18 at the time– they quickly caught local attention for their sludgy, 90s inspired guitar riffs, explosive rhythm section, and stunning vocals.
Catcher is a Brooklyn-based post-punk band with a reputation for visceral and powerful live performances. Drawing comparisons to The Birthday Party, Sonic Youth and The Fall, Catcher delivers music with a driving and inundating low-end, provided by childhood friends Cameron McRae and Wilson Chestney, on bass and drums respectively. Guitarists Jack Young and Christian Reech interweave melodies and noise to create an environment that manages to be at once both bleak and moving, desolate but hopeful, violent but tender. Classically trained violinist Zach Mezzo brings, through his background in experimental composition, a combination of moody swells, driving staccatos, and vicious noise that enrich and accentuate the dynamics and dramatics inherent to the band’s songwriting. Vocalist Austin Eichler commands listeners with a domineering and chaotic presence. From drawling croons to powerful screams, Austin’s narrative lyrics invoke a wide spectrum of emotion while creating a world of their own. Through endless hours of practice and work the band has crafted a gripping and tight live performance and a growing international fanbase.
Combining punk roots with a fascination in Beat and Lost Generation literature, Been Stellar play stylish, confrontational indie rock. Coming together from all around the globe to reside in the Lower East Side, the 5 piece share their honest account of a city hyper-saturated with commercialism, consumerism, and aging cultural touchstones.
