My nephew Josh is 12. I absolutely adore him, could eat him up! He is, and always has been a sweet, gentle soul, smart, insightful and loving. And he's always good for a big bear hug and a kiss, which I love. (I'll be very sad when he's too old for that!). Although I don't get to all his events, I do love it when I can make it... Last night he and his band had a gig at the Bitter End. And I was there.
He's been playing with this band for a few year now. Originally called the Four Fellas, the band includes Max Fried (guitar), Will Balasam (keyboard), Ben Irving (vocals, guitar) and Josh Wilson (drummer.) But when they brought in a girl for a lead singer, Taliana Katz (also on bass), they changed the name to White Label. They've definitely improved and I like the girl vocals - she totally nailed Pat Benatar's "Hit Me with Your Best Shot." Their playlist also included Bowie's "Rebel Rebel," Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower," Arctic Monkeys "Florescent Adolescent," The Who's "Baba O'Reily" and they bclosed with Journey's "Don't Stop Believing." Although they've got a laid back style, I'm pretty sure they were psyched... as they should have been. The Bitter End is a great place to see a band - and I imagine a pretty cool place to play too!
Josh rocks... but the bummer part of being a drummer - hard to get a great picture!
