The Nude Party - (Set time: 12:30 AM)
The Nude Party
The Nude Party congealed as one unit in the southern mountain town of Boone, NC in 2013 and gained their namesake very literally. Bonded by isolation, house party debauchery, a religion based on pushing the limits of bad taste, and a precocious predisposition towards the Kinks, the Animals and the Velvets, they have burgeoned into a rock and roll act to be reckoned with. As the hysteria at their local shows steadily increases, so does their reputation with local law enforcement, forcing them daily more to seek employment anywhere but home. While snooping cops seeking to stamp out indiscriminate behavior scour the borders of their homestead the Nude Ranch, the group has prodigally exiled themselves and are staying scarce with a string of self booked tours and one night stands which have linked them up with with such likes as The Growlers, The Oblivians, La Luz, Night Beats, and King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard.

Their stripped down and bare bone sound, akin to the British Invasion being transplanted back into the Carolina mountains, has so far proven to have been unrecordable… until now. The secret? Sticking to the obvious and going down into a sweaty basement with a few mics, fewer clothes and a revolving door of comrades and goddesses falling by for as long as they can take the heat. Lately the Nudes have even gotten good at playing with their clothes on. However if any audience member feels the need to participate in the spirit of exhibitionism the stakes at the Party will unblinkingly be called and raised.

Stuyedeyed
What started as a 2 year span recording project in his bedroom, Nelson Antonio Espinal finds himself looking at the world through a Stuyedeyed point of view. Coming out of Bed-Stuy, the Brooklyn neighborhood where Nelson spent a majority of his youth, he and the band realized the idea of the “scene” they were a part of and it’s ringleaders didn’t represent what they were feeling and what they stood for. Most can’t grasp the idea of what hood dreams are. What it means to really get out.

While everyone is talking the same shit, drinking the same drink, and wearing the same thing, no one is advocating for anything other than a good time. And that shit doesn’t sit well with 4 punks trying to speak to something real.

Don’t over romanticize a meaning behind the name. A Stuyedeyed point of view is simple: you’re looking up from the bottom. It may be what anger looks like, but it’s how love feels.

Most of Stuyedeyed’s music can be traced to a specific moment, a real experience. A way to catalogue the existence of a group of people who can’t seem to find their home, therefore making their home in each experience they care to hold onto. A band who finds themselves holding onto more and more as time goes by, valuing real interactions. There’s enough disappointment, anger, love, compassion, and division to dive into if you’re paying attention. They find they’re not too picky, soaking in and filtering through all life’s white noise.

Nelson opted out of college, preferring to use his time to better himself and learn from the world around him, making everyday life his classroom. The best advice he ever received: “Write what you want to see live.” And that’s what he moved on to do.

The Stuyedeyed live performance is an aggressive, yet welcome, slap in the face, waking you up from the hamster wheel of the mundane. If only for a moment, you will feel alive.

The tools and affirmation to create this come from artists the band undeniably loves and respects. Bands like King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Ron Gallo, Ty Segall, Father John Misty, Devandra Barnhart, Fela Kuti, Creepoid, everything Fania, and all things Daptone. The list could go on and on but the point remains that no matter the style of music, writing and performing from a genuine place will shine through. Artists like these give Stuyedeyed the tools to create songs the way they do.

All we can say is that not enough people use their medium to have a relevant message. To quote Father John Misty, “Nowadays we’ve become inclined to chase a characterless love.” And we want our music to mirror our love: DEFINED.

Our news is satirical. Politics, absurd. Fake jobs disguised as meaning and purpose. Fake friendships to attain fake goals. Networking over crafted cocktails with garnishes imported from countries they don’t give a fuck about in a noisy, sweaty room full of self-important people. Humor is a beautiful thing but it’s become our drug. Reality, REAL reality, has become so heavy that we’d prefer not to feel at all. We’re numb with self-importance. But you know what? FUCK IT.

Everything is a joke and we’re mad about it.

This is Stuyedeyed.

Jonathan Toubin
Dynamic DJ and nightlife visionary Jonathan Toubin is changing the world one riotous 45rpm at a time. He'll spin an extended "maximum rock and soul" set leading into an after-hours Silent Disco edition of his popular Soul Clap and Dance Off party.

Best known for his hit "Mary Lou," Young Jessie epitomizes the wild '50s blend of West Coast R&B and rock 'n' roll. He has cut some of the best records of the era on his own and as a member of the Coasters and the Flairs. Joining him are New Orleans culture bearers King James & The Special Men, part of the Ninth Ward vanguard who plays real, raucous music the old-fashioned way, in their first show outside of Louisiana.
