On Friday, July 19, the Brooklyn Drum Collective presented an appropriately hot lineup of four bands on the roof of Bushwick venue Our Wicked Lady. For a taste, check out the recent episode of StereoActiveNYC featuring BDC’s own Carlo Minchillo here. True Dreams kicked off the night with a blistering set and Bizarre Sharks sent the night into overdrive with their wild party rock and Catty celebrated the debut of their Scratch tape with hooks and riffs galore. PowerSnap increased the intensity to levels matching the amount of sweat pouring off the roof. It was a near-perfect night of local music with a solid dose of drummer appreciation.
Carlo Minchillo tells us about the Brooklyn Drum Collective, an organization he co-founded with the purpose of building a stronger community local drummers and musicians more generally. We hear music from Powersnap, Bizarre Sharks, and True Dreams, who are all playing a BDC-sponsored show on the rooftop at Our Wicked Lady on July 19th, along with Catty. We also hear from a few projects Carlo has recently begun playing with, himself: Pocket Protector, The Planes, and Glass Slipper.
