Knitting Factory Presents
Maybird, Evolfo, Caverns
Josh Netsky is the singer and principal songwriter of the Brooklyn/Rochester based band Maybird. Along with Sam Snyder, Kurt Johnson and Josh’s brother Adam Netsky the band self-released their debut record, Down and Under, in 2013. The ambitious, independent record caught the ear of producer Danger Mouse (Gnarls Barkley, Broken Bells) who approached the band to sign to his Columbia Records imprint, 30th Century Records. In April of 2016 Maybird released Turning Into Water, an EP that fuses expensive psychedelia with evocative roots rock accents. NPR debuted the video for the song “Looking Back” stating, “It’s a poignant, profoundly emotional ode to childhood, fleeting youth and chasing dreams.” In the Summer of 2016 the band spent time in Nashville, TN working with Patrick Carney of The Black Keys at his home recording studio. The new set of songs is set to be released in June and the band will spend the rest of the year on the road.
Since they formed in high school in 2009, the veritable army that is Evolfo has been an enigma. Their music is a celebration of life. It implores you; rise up and live, get off your high-horse, forget your pretentions, and your professionalism. Currently residing in Brooklyn, the Garage Soul rockers have crafted a unique sound. To quote the Boston Herald, “Evolfo does pop, punk, funk, and Eastern European rhythms — sometimes in the same song”.
CAVERNS is a Rock band from New York. They're raw, and what you see is what you get! The band's members, Nicola Wincenc and Russell Holzman are heavily influenced by a plethora of artists such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Band of Gypsies, Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers and more. Caverns has been described as "little terrors that have a knack for toe-curling guitar lines, and heavy psychedelic grooves." They are currently working with renowned GRAMMY-winning producer/engineer Warren Riker on a number of forthcoming releases.
After Caverns cut their teeth for years at residencies at both The Bitter End and The Knitting Factory, they have landed dozens of noteworthy gigs on both coasts including The Highline Ballroom, Manhattan Center Grand Ballroom, Webster Hall, The House of Blues, Bardot/Avalon, and the Marc Jacobs Spring 2016 Runway Show at the Ziegfeld Theater. Since then, they have broken into the festival circuit, playing at events such as the Firefly Festival, POP Montreal, Rock the Blocks Music Festival, Earthfest, and will be appearing at Peach Festival summer 2017.
