Harold performs as a clown, juggler, lasso artist, cyr wheelist (the Human Spoke), unicycler, and a FUNNY face maker.

THE INDECENT, BIG NILS + TOY SUGAR

  • w/ DJ Keili (WFMU) + Bamiam.tv

THE INDECENT, BIG NILS and TOY SUGAR rocks BIG SKY WORKS with special guest DJ KEILI  and BAMIAM.TV

Jan 14th, 2012 BIG SKY WORKS presents an evening of all original music with three of the hottest teen rock bands in the country along with special guest DJ KEILI from Beastin’ the Airwaves on WFMU Radio and mind bending visuals from BAMIAM.TV

THE INDECENT make music that is aggressive, subtle, poetic, profane, and quite often all these things at once. Influenced by Patti Smith, the Gits, the Velvet Underground, Barrett’s Floyd, and many Seattle-type things, the Indecent are Emily Brout (vocals), Madeline Brout (bass), Bo Brout (guitar), all from New York City, and Windsor, Ontario’s Nicholas Burrows on drums. The group self-released their first album, Her Screwed Up Head, in the fall of 2010, and will release their major label debut on Warner Bros Records this coming spring, produced by Rob Cavallo.

BIG NILS is a Western Mass. Freewheelin’ punk band that enjoys getting band burgers (and each other). They are named after a very tall ex punk rocker named Nils who has a rock n’ roll tattoo and has been arrested for stealing and setting buildings on fire. They are currently working on putting out “Siblings” on cassette tape and hopefully, in the future on vinyl. Some fun band activities include making underwear, taking band trips to play shows in Sen’s Cadillac and making noise in Coco’s basement.

TOY SUGAR is NYC’s all girl teen band-a little sweet, a little rebellious and a whole lotta’ talented! They are fans of sweeping guitars, crooning vocals, and pounding drums. Their unique sound plays with old school rock n’ roll, touches of punk and indie rock. They have played many wonderful venues in NYC and especially love Big Sky Works, which is a second home to these rockers!

DJ KEILI- WFMU darling and host of Beastin’ The Airwaves! with Keili since 2008, DJ Keili has been spinning on the air and in the club since the age of 15. She’s got her finger on the pulse of the All Ages Indie Music movement, bringing it to events at the finest venues and smallest dives in New York City and the world.

B.A MIALE aka BAMiAM.TV is a not only an award winning music video director, but a rare breed of video artist who mashes up her playfully psychedelic visuals in real time on a keytar.
