Last Friday, we teamed up with DoNYC, Sixpoint Brewery, BrickFest, and the New York Hall of Science to host a proper summer kick off concert. On a night where the forecast called for scattered showers and clouds, we were gratefully surprised to see clear skies and rockets fill our periphery. Besides being able to explore the museum after hours while drinking delicious Sixpoint beers and snacking on V-Spot vegan empanadas, you were also able to build your own lego creations and watch live performances from some of the most promising emerging artists.
What else could you seriously ask for? (Did we mention the stage was between two rockets that actually went into space?!)
EVVY hit the stage first, a thoroughbred New Yorker with a fantastical dance-pop sound. EVVY drew a crowd from beyond the museum fences and kicked off the night with a set of soulful upbeat songs that showcased her gorgeous vocal range.
Following EVVY’s set were the rock stars, Charly Bliss. Charly Bliss is comprised of four charming musicians, whose sound is so strong, it could knock Mike Tyson on his ass. Eva’s energy on stage made the crowd jump around as much as she did. Charly Bliss delivered a knock out combination of songs including the beloved tracks, “Love Me”, and “Urge To Purge”.
DJ GRLFRNDWRKS, a Queens native, kept people’s ears refreshed and bodies moving between sets. DJ GRLFRNDWRKS is a special kind of artist due to his masterful knowledge of dark trap, and indie pop. The combination of music sourced from GFW, kept guests pumped while they sipped on brews and ordered empanadas.
Closing the night was Ava Luna, an incredible Brooklyn based five piece band that makes funky, harmonic, avant-rock. Their set was illuminated by the full moon sky reflecting off of two ballistic rockets. Their big bottom sound, and dreamy vocals were the perfect ending to a magical night.
We want to give a big THANK YOU to our Play Too Much family and everyone who made the night possible including all of the artists, DoNYC, Sixpoint Brewery, BrickFest, The V Spot , and especially the New York Hall of Science
Look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events!
