ME + NOBODY
Me + Nobody are a band in their infancy, having only assembled less than one year ago. The hype surrounding this band is tangible, and they’re receiving early recognition through Spotify playlist placements and buzz on multiple popular music blogs. Their limited experience certainly didn’t hold them back, as the quartet seemed poised and ready to deliver a memorable performance.
Specialists brought their unique blend of funk and dance-rock to Brooklyn Made last Friday night, following strong opening performances by Will Leet and Bentley Robles. Perhaps the most noticeable aspect of Specialists’ sound is their distinct lack of one single lead vocalist. Instead, the group is bolstered by two equally strong singers in co-founders Mikey Rotunno (bass) and Will Harden (guitar), who took turns leading the crowd through their cleverly written songs.

You know your friend who’s well-travelled, chic, intelligent, tasteful–basically just hip as fuck? Thievery Corporation is the musical equivalent of that friend. Complete with their signature set-up (an elevated DJ booth perched behind a leather couch) the group took the stage in front of a seated crowd who didn’t stay seated for very long
Blame it on the full moon that illuminated the Brooklyn streets that evening–the energy was elevated from the very beginning. As fans continued to pour in, Kali led the crowd in a soulful catharsis on songs.
