Brooklyn’s Hospitality Play The Bowery Ballroom Tonight

January 10th, 2013

Vocalist and guitarist Amber Papini, bassist Brian Betancourt and percussionist Nathan Michel began making music as Hospitality in 2007. A self-released EP earned the Brooklyn trio some worthy attention. But they proved to have an even fuller sound on last year’s self-titled LP (stream it below), filled with enough rich melodies and jangly guitars to help balance the line between happy and melancholic music. Check them out, above, playing “The Birthday” in a restaurant-supply store exclusively for The Bowery Presents Live channel on YouTube and then watch them discuss why music is necessary for Hospitality before you see them live, tonight at The Bowery Ballroom.
