Brother Moses

Brother Moses is an indie rock band who wants to make music that people put on when they’re driving in their cars. At least, that’s what the group’s lead singer and guitarist, James Lockhart, told us before their show at Baby’s All Right last week. After the recent release of their latest EP, Apocalypse Football, and on the brink of the upcoming album to follow, Brother Moses kicked off their series of three east coast shows at the Williamsburg venue.

Specialists NYC Brooklyn Made

Specialists

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.

Karavan Sarai

There are few artists who allow an audience to truly transcend time and space to experience new cultures from the ends of the earth. Experiencing Karavan Sarai is like entering a spiritual expedition by traveling through soundscapes of the Silk Road from Arabia to India and the Balkans to Persia.

The two are self-described as “brothers from the same mother.”

The Floozies

Guitarist Matt and drummer Mark are two funky bros–literally. The Hills hail from Lawrence, Kansas and have been making music together as the electro funk duo, the Floozies, since 2008. From making songs using a loop station and playing in their parents’ basement to going on sold out cross-country tours, playing some of the biggest festivals, and playing their dream venues, the Floozies’ success is evident in their commitment to bringing fresh, groovy vibes to every single show, without a set list. Mix one part funk with another part electronica, then add some jam, jazz, dub, a talk box, and some (epic) lasers, and you get a live music party that you never want to leave.

Moon Kissed

To call the three shows that Moon Kissed hosted in December at Baby’s All Right a ‘residency’ would be a complete understatement. Over three weeks, Moon Kissed brought their audience into a new world, inspired in part by Dante’s Inferno, with a series of shows that each embodied ‘Heaven,’ ‘Purgatory,’ and ‘Hell,’ each featuring performance art, suggested attire, and live performances that highlighted the theme.

The Sultan Room

The Sultan Room has quickly become one of our favorite venues. It’s a great spot for a smaller show inside or a sunset show on the roof. The wall behind the stage downstairs features an epic light display that we didn’t know we needed, but we do. The roof has a chiller vibe and smaller stage with room to sit or dance. If you’re hungry, there’s an awesome sit down restaurant, The Turk’s Inn, that’s decorated like the inside of your quirky great-aunt’s house. For a faster bite, the Döner Kebab takeout window never disappoints.
