Tuesday night at Mercury Lounge was the sold out record release show for Pela's new album Anytown Grafitti. It was my first time seeing them live, and they did not disappoint.
Opening the show was Man In Gray, Takka Takka and Project Jenny, Project Jan.
PJPJ got the crowd going with their funky dance beats. Funny and catchy. I dig 'em. The duo features a pretty simple setup vocals and synth and beats, but the beats are fly and the lyrics are dope yo.
What can I say about Pela? They are being touted as THE buzz band from NYC right now. This album should be huge, and they just plain kick ass live. The band is tight, and they built up to a huge amount of energy for the completely packed house.
They will playing Mercury Lounge again for two dates in May. See them now while you still have a chance at getting tickets.
