Full Crate & Mars

Yerp! It’s your friendly neighborhood noisemakers, back once more with sights and sounds from the Loft. We’re still on our transcontinental tilt, this time bringing you the beat-mastery and soul singing of Amsterdam’s own FullCrate and Mar. The talented two have crossed the Atlantic for a stateside rendezvous, and we’re pleased to present them to you music loving masses. The pre-show run around has become pretty legendary at this point, but we’ve become pretty skilled at cloaking our anxieties. Once the first few guests start arriving, it’s time to get into character. Let the show begin… Continue reading

AZORES

I know, I know…we’re churning ‘em out like hotcakes. Another week, another episode. To this point, we’ve kept it domestic, but we’re turning the corner with this episode for an intercontinental look. Live At The Loft is pleased to present our buddies to the north, Toronto’s own Azores band. The Canadian three-piece has infiltrated border patrol lines to light up a hit of indie rock stateside. This is a special occasion, as Azores will be using the live audio recorded at the Loft for their forthcoming EP release. Uproarious cheering and applause are strongly encouraged… Continue reading

We’re starting to notice the murmuring of a swelling crowd, so it’s time to set things in motion… Continue reading

SATURN NEVER SLEEPS

Once again, it’s your humble nocturnalist-journalist, reporting live from the Loft. It’s only right we present to you fellow night lurkers, Saturn Never Sleeps (King Britt & Rucyl), arriving up from Philly to provide our score for another restless night. Along to set the table for tonight’s affair, we also have DJ Tara, as well as extended Loft fam, Fresh Daily, Jasmine Solano and The Stuyvesants back for another soundscaping. This time they’re treating us to some tracks from their latest sophomore effort, a double LP of beats called The Finer Things. The head-nodding has commenced, so please join us, if you will, for another episode… Continue reading

AFTA-1

It’s a Thursday night and I’m along for the ride with Tone, headed to Newark International Airport to deliver our esteemed guest to the Loft for tomorrow evening’s show. Fresh from the left coast, arriving on a midnight flight, we’ve brought the wheels out to scoop up beat-savant AFTA-1 for #14 of Live At The Loft. The season has abruptly shifted from summer soft to an autumn chill, but it’s still a warm Jersey welcome for the Cali kid. He’ll have to rest up tonight. Tomorrow should be a dandy.
