The Press Rock Albany

Its easy to underestimate Albany, sometimes it seems like there isn't really much going on, but the more you look the more you find. Like last weekend I found out about the Ironweed Collective house in downtown Albany which apparently regularly hosts awesome house shows (I will do my best to post any of their future shows here). I was fortunate enough to catch the The Press play there last saturday night with Oddy Gato, and Zahnarzt.

After a slow start on the first song these guys put on the best live show that I have seen in months, and had everyone in the house dancing about . According to their myspace page The Press sounds like this:

I think its a pretty accurate description, their influences seem to include at least Q and not U, Modest Mouse, CYHSY and maybe the Wolf Parade but they are anything but derivative. Their live show is a high energy group effort that has each band member singing at some point. If you ask me these guys are destined for greatness and if you live in the north east you should definetly try to catch them this month
