Pianos is an interesting space. Sometimes its loud acoustics, small room, and not-quite Brooklyn crowd conspire to stifle the spirit of even the brightest young bands. Sometimes, with the right crowd, a band can overcome all of these factors and put on an amazing, intimate show. It’s strange how easily the mood of the space […]
This is how I imagine the conversation that started Free Energy went: “Dude.” “Dude.” “Let’s start a band.” “Dude, awesome idea.” “Let’s just play the happiest music possible.” “Dude.
