THE STUDIO AT WEBSTER HALL
Artistic expression manifests in myriad forms. Music, in particular, is an amorphous beast at best—ranging from shuddering dub-step bass drops, to stripped-down acoustic folk numbers—variety is inherently enmeshed within the medium. With a surplus of musical diversity comes an equally ravenous following of enthusiasts. While some may confine themselves to one genre, there are the pioneers out there—those who thrive in the poly-rhythmic chaos of aural variety.
For those desirous of venues with a multiplicity of musical options, look no further: here are 5 spots that range the spectrum—providing the panacean sounds of your choice!
Blip Blip Bleep is a indie electro-pop trio from Brooklyn. The band will be performing at the Mercury Lounge this Thursday, September 9th with Team Genius, Deadbeat Darling, and Tenderbox. I recently talked to bandmembers Sean and JoJo about their upcoming show at the Mercurly Lounge, shooting the video for their single, "Freak You Out," and their CMJ showcase on October 23rd.
How did you guys come up with the name Blip Blip Bleep?
Sean: Our music is pretty electronic and people often use terms like “blip blip bleep” to describe the sound of that kind of style and after months of coming up with the worst possible names, we were like, 'Well, what if we just do something simple?' And I came up with Blip Blip Bleep. It was catchy enough and I was like, 'This could work.' It just stuck.
