Leisure Cruise

Show Alert: Leisure Cruise, Atlas Lab and Sundog at Middle East Upstairs, 2/18

Swap out your snow boots and parkas for your dancin' shoes and head over to The Middle East Upstairs tomorrow night, February 18. Brooklyn's Leisure Cruise are coming through Cambridge/Boston, bringing with them a warm wave of electro-pop that should make everyone forget about the frozen tundra outside, if only for a little while. They'll be supported by locals Atlas Lab and Sundog, who is making the trip all the way from outer space (also known as New Orleans), according to his bio. The show kicks off at 8PM and is presented by Boston Music Scene. 18+, $10 at the door, proper ID required. For more info about the show, click here.

Leah Siegel's new project Leisure Cruise debuts live at Bowery on 04.10

We've been following Leah Siegel's musical journey  for a while, both during her solo early years and the following Firehorse period, which apparently has just come to an end, since the Brooklyn based songwriter announced yesterday the adoption of a new band moniker, coinciding with the beginning of a new collaboration with Dave Hodge of Canadian collective Broken Social Scene. The project's new name is Leisure Cruise, and the two electro-pop tracks they  released this far have already grabbed the attention of many bloggers and booking agents, so much so that the duo will celebrate their live debut at the Bowery Ballroom, tomorrow (April 10) - on the bill also Brooklyn bands Milagres and Conveyor.
