Insound Music is having their 10th Anniversary celebration tonight at the newly opened Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg. After launching back in 1999, Insound has grown and grown and continued to be the place to find the CDs, vinyl, digital music, and merch of your favorite up-and-coming and unsigned bands. The way the music industry is going these days, the stream of revenue from these types of sales is becoming more and more important to a band’s success or failure. While on the road, many working bands depend on the sales at their merch tables to get by, so it’s a good thing to come out and support. The lineup of bands they have set to perform includes: Cymbals Eat Guitars, These Are Powers, The Drums, and Real Estate. The last time we saw The Drums, at one of their first shows, they killed it and if their brand new video for their song “Let’s Go Surfing” is any indication, they’re only getting tighter and sharper over time.
On all of the promotion for the event and on the Brooklyn Bowl website it lists the fifth band that will perform as “TBA.” But **EXCLUSIVE UPDATE** our sources at Brooklyn Bowl tell us that this TBA band will be Brooklyn’s own Suckers! I have been wanting to check them out for a while, mostly because of their song “Easy Chairs.” Listen below and you’ll see what I’m talking about. There is a free happy hour provided by Brooklyn Brewery from 6-8 so get their early if you’re going tonight!
