The day after my birthday and still slightly hungover, attending a show was not my ideal plan. After convincing myself, and a friend of course, I ended up going to Crosstown Station to see Tim York and Not A Planet. And once again, iPhone pics!
We arrived mid-way through York’s set. I really enjoy his sound, especially the use of Bongos; although I may have a weird obsession with percussion.
Backed by a percussionist and bassist, York keeps the crowd entertained with his upbeat tunes: almost Jack Johnson upbeat, but still low key.
Forget using the word indie to describe a band, Not A Planet is straight folk rock and they fucking own it. Very dancey and fun to watch, NAP has tons of catchy one liners and hooks. However, it’s not catchy bad pop punk hooks. This is rock n’ roll baby.
Bringing the majority of the crowd, they debuted two new songs; which you can hear acoustically on their upcoming PodWreck episode.
NAP left the stage with confidence one by one as the instruments dropped out. Only to leave singer/guitarist Nathan Corsi to finish their last song.
Look for a new album out at the end of October, I highly recommend picking one up.
