The Gasoline

The Gasoline is George Eve (vocals/guitar), Gigi Gardner (bass), and Chris Trombley (drums) – a 3 piece rock band from New York City by way of London.

Following the conclusion of the London garage rock quartet Joy Room, Eve moved to NYC for a change of scenery and better cheeseburgers. While writing the band’s first songs he lived Seinfeld-style across the hall from Donald Cumming, frontman of downtown indie rock icons The Virgins. Through Donald, George quickly found himself introduced to and in the studio with producer/engineer Gus Oberg (The Strokes, Albert Hammond Jr.), where the two began working out a dozen tracks.

Gigi (formerly of London’s idiosyncratic post-punkers Famous) and Chris were quickly enlisted to elevate the sound and round out the band’s live lineup. Their first ever show came at a Mercury Lounge packed wall-to-wall with bodies and Matt Hitt (The Vaccines, Drowners) assuming the evening’s lead guitar responsibilities. The band’s sound looks back to move forward, retooling the spirit of the 2000s guitar band pantheon through a heightened emphasis on melody and lyrics inspired by rap all while guided by sensibilities of timeless 60s and 70s songwriting. Their debut single, ‘Midnight’ was released in February of 2024.The Gasoline are from New York City, produced by Gus Oberg (The Strokes, The Virgins)

Shallowhalo

NYC-based electronic duo Shallowhalo, the project of producers Allyson Camitta and Ezra Tenenbaum, have racked up praise this year from outlets like Perfectly Imperfect, PAPER, NME, Nylon and more, following the release of their debut album, “No Fun,” featuring collaborations with Harrison Patrick Smith (The Dare/Turtlenecked), Sam Glick (Test Subjects) and May Rio via Blaketheman1000's Dino Records in 2022, and a pair of stand alone singles, "Crystal Ball" and "Renaissance Affair," in 2023. Meanwhile, We Take Manhattan, the recurring East Village DJ party co-founded by Camitta has become a popular destination for downtown scenesters and a buzzy Indie Sleaze-adjacent cast of characters. “Decision of a Flower'' (out now) is the latest single off of Shallowhalo’s newly announced EP Connection, set for release in April, 2024.

Blending bits of 2000s electro, Italo disco and art pop, “Decision of a Flower'' pushes Shallowhalo’s synth-heavy bubblegum sound even further towards something that would be at home on one of Camitta’s late night DJ sets, while pointing towards the inventive pop of groups like Les Rita Mitsouko, Ladytron and Kittin & The Hacker. “He said he loves me, he loves me not— a little a lot, wish I could stop”, Camitta laments as she oscillates between exhilaration and exhaustion, deciding whether or not to throw in the towel on a fickle relationship while dropping tart heartbroken melodies like tears on the dance floor.

Long

Long is a darling mouthy exorcism. A noisy temper tantrum of sweet melody and garbage flavored candy. Frontman Kyle Cramer founded the band in early 2022, recruiting guitarist Blake Maxwell, bassist Seth Queeney, and drummer Zack Pockrose.

We Take Manhattan

We Take Manhattan (WTM) is the New York City based DJ duo consisting of Allyson Camitta (aka Shallowhalo) and Charlie Baker. WTM began at the start of 2023, throwing their eponymous monthly parties at Old Flings on Avenue A. We Take Manhattan parties are known for, as Paper Magazine put it, “bringing "together some of the city’s most influential downtown scenesters." East Village rockers and Dimes Square socialites alike gather in a room with so many flash photographers that you need to wear shades. The music Allyson and Charlie play is a mix of indie sleaze throwbacks and brand-new tracks by their friends in the thriving NYC scene. No matter the era, every song will make you dance.

We Take Manhattan has hosted parties in New York City and Los Angeles featuring performances and DJ sets from artists such as The Dare, Cherry Glazerr, the Ion Pack, and many more. Special events have included spinning at Julian Casablancas's The Voidz residency at MURMRR Theatre, at Chris Smalls and Steven Donziger’s event at Baby's All Right, and at the afterparty for “Dimes Square” playwright Matthew Gasda’s newest play. The duo's name is a reference to the Leonard Cohen song "First We Take Manhattan."
