On June 2, 2010, Texas rockers Alpha Rev opened for JP Chrissie and the Fairground Boys (aka Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders new band) at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl.  Performing songs from their latest album “New Morning,” Alpha Rev got the crowd ready to party with their blend of rock and roll mixed with violins.  They are attracting a lot of buzz in the music industry and their new single “New Morning,” is quickly climbing the VH-1 video charts.  After performing nine songs, the band came back for an encore (usually unheard of for an opening act) and performed a rousing cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”  A video of “Hallelujah” is forthcoming – stay tuned!  Based on the crowd reaction and the energy of the performance, I think Alpha Rev is going to be a band you’ll be hearing a lot more from in the coming months.
