New Yorkers! Get your hip little buns over to Bowery Electric tonight, November 19, 2010 to see one of the hottest bands on the planet, The Rassle, for FREE! I’m told they hit the stage around 9:00 pm. It’s also bass player Mark Solomich’s birthday today, so as you can imagine, tonight’s show is going to be one hell of a party! Happy birthday Mark (pictured in red above)! A fun fact about the birthday boy who was born free – he and his band are moving full speed ahead!

Moments after their show stealing performance at the Mercury Lounge on September 15, 2010, I met The Rassle! I have been in love with their music ever since they offered their debut EP for free on their official site earlier this year. When I spoke with the band, I told them each how much I love their music and I also recounted my story 4 separate times of my recent trip to Los Angeles where I had some magical moments driving on the freeway with the windows rolled down blasting their track “Born Free.” I’m really looking forward to hearing their debut album which will most likely be out in early 2011. If you want to be known amongst your friends as a taste-maker, slip their songs into your mixtapes and get ready for everyone to say “What is this song? I love it!” Thanks again to The Rassle for making such great music, for all being so cool and for not rolling their eyes at me when I became a little fan boy telling them how much I love their music. I’ll be looking for their names at the top of the music charts.
