moe. Album Release Party - May 28 at Stage 48, NYC
moe., the preeminent progressive rock band on the music scene today and a quintet of world class musicians, whose creative output equals that of their longevity, will perform an intimate show on Wednesday May 28th at Stage 48 in midtown Manhattan. The band will perform a rare acoustic set in the early part of the evening as part of a VIP ticket package that also includes a top shelf open bar, buffet stations, a commemorative show poster, a meet and greet with the band where fans will get their posters signed, and more. The band will perform a full two-set show for both VIP and general admission audiences beginning at 10pm.
Over a journey spanning nearly a quarter-century, moe. has let their knack for dynamic, democratic improvisation influence nearly every facet of the band's existence. In concert, they stretch the boundaries of their source material into intricate, set-long suites where distinct songs seamlessly segue into one another in exhilarating fashion. In the studio, their eclectic, wide-ranging sensibilities manifest in playful, varied albums that spotlight both their fluid musicianship and their incisive, hook-laden songwriting.
Available May 27, 2014 on Sugar Hill Records, moe.'s new album No Guts, No Glory finds moe. at their most inventive and resilient. The album's eleven songs (fourteen on the deluxe CD, digital, and double vinyl editions, featurin artwork by Emek) took a winding path. "These songs were written with an acoustic album in mind," says guitarist and vocalist Chuck Garvey. When that original intention fell victim to logistical hurdles, Garvey says, "we ended up making a whole different thing."
STAGE 48, located at 605 West 48th Street in Hell's Kitchen NYC, is a four floor, multi-use venue that hosts concerts, nightlife, private and corporate events. Built in the 1950s as a horse stable, the building has been completely remodeled based on the classic beauty of the original industrial architecture while incorporating complementary modern elements to create an ambience that is at once intimate and grandiose. A large horseshoe balcony overlooks the main floor, providing excellent site-lines of the 34-foot wide stage. Multiple elevated VIP areas are located throughout the venue. A newly installed state-of-the-art sound, lighting and video system ensures an A/V experience as powerful and inspiring as any in the city. Tickets to all shows are available in person at the Stage 48 box office Monday through Friday from 11AM to 6PM and two hours before any showtime. Tickets may also be purchased online at Ticketweb.com
