Derrick & The Black Sea

Alt Rootsy night with Mree, The Stationary Set, Streets of Laredo, Julian Fulton + more

Thursday night at Spike Hill we'll have a really fun AND interesting bill with a lot of talented artists dedicated to bringing roots music in new directions. The very young and talented songwriter Mree - a recent Deli artist of the month - has been gathering a lot of buzz with her ethereal songs and impeccable home made recordings and videos, which got hundreds of thousands of views; don't miss her show at 9pm. As artsy as Mree, but slightly more upbeat and soulful, The Stationary Set have become a mainstay of the Brooklyn scene and will showcase their artsy soul-pop at 10.30. Julian Fulton and the Zombie Gospel will surely be happy to be sandwiched between these two artists; this band plays rootsy pop with psychedelic tinges - we are very curious to see them live. NZ imports Streets of Laredo (pictured) will keep faith to their mission of charming Newyorkers one by one with their contagious alt country, while Derrick & The Black Sea and Great Elk will open and close the night with their intense songs flirting with Americana and alt rock.

NYC Year End Poll - ALT FOLK Submission: Derrick & The Black Sea Ties in 2nd Place

It can be hard to do the right thing. We all know you want to of course, but for Derrick & The Black Sea, they understand how some things are easier said than done. In 'Mama,' Brooklyn singer Derrick Karg wails: "trying to be a man, but I don't know right from wrong." Poor guy… but, I can relate. The Brooklyn band struggles their way through these issues of growing up and letting go throughout the few scattered tracks they've so far released. The honesty is telling, and the lonesome guitars and sparse drums bring it all home. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
