Assembly of Dust Play the Early Show Tomorrow at Mercury Lounge

September 7th, 2016

Frontman Reid Genauer, previously of Strangefolk, formed Assembly of Dust in 2002 while still studying for his MBA at Cornell University. The self-titled debut album (stream it below) was essentially a solo effort but Genauer (vocals and guitar) wanted a bigger sound to play the music live. Now rounded out by Adam Terrell (guitar and vocals), Dave Diamond (drums), John Leccesse (bass and vocals) and Jason Crosby (keys, fiddle and vocals), the R&B- and blues-based rockers have earned comparisons to My Morning Jacket, Little Feat and Wilco. And thanks to their fiery live performances, Assembly of Dust (above, doing “Speculator” live for MoBoogie) have garnered a sizable traveling fan base and a reputation as a good-times band. Their most recent release, the live full-length Tales from the Oregon Trail (stream it below), came out earlier this year. Relix called it “crafty, creative and brimming with celebration, revelry, blithe country comforts and astute invention.” Assembly of Dust kick off a short tour at home when they play Mercury Lounge tomorrow. Upstate funky jammers Formula 5 open the show.

We’ve Got You Covered on Halloween

October 30th, 2013

Let’s face it: Halloween is one of the biggest amateur nights of the year. So rather than trying to fight your way through a parade or going to a costume party surrounded by people who think they’re supposed to drink as much as they possibly can, let us do the heavy lifting for you, because we’ve got five stellar shows on All Hallows’ Eve. Grateful Dead guitarist Phil Lesh brings his traveling group of Friends—guitarists Grahame Lesh, Anders Osborne and Luther Dickinson, keyboardist Jason Crosby and drummer Tony Leoneto the Capitol Theatre; New York City’s own Holy Ghost! bring their post-disco dance party to Terminal 5; Avan Lava, mixing electronic music, rock and R&B, will have the Music Hall of Williamsburg crowd moving in unison; another hometown band, post-punk five-piece Crystal Stilts, will think global and rock local at The Bowery Ballroom; and taking a break from playing Madison Square Garden, English crooner Ed Sheeran (above, performing “Wake Me Up” for Live from the Artists Den) plays Mercury Lounge. Tickets for that show go on sale—only online—tomorrow at noon.
