Saturday 3/17 -
THE REX COMPLEX
$8 advance / $10 at the door
8:30 doors / 9:00 show
Three dynamic acts grace the carpets at The Lizard tonight. First up, the powerful Christian McNeill from local buzz band Sea Monsters followed by two of Brooklyn's finest bands: Railbird and The Rex Complex
Led by frontman Rex Hussmann and drummer Jeremy Gustin, Brooklyn-based The Rex Complex pounds roots ruckus songs into people's nervous system often resulting in a joyous shock. According to the Boston Phoenix the band "specializes in voodoo psych-blues tantrums (with a smidge of Primus)."
"The Rex Complex has an eloquent buffet of intertwined genres from afro-beat to punk. A one-of-a-kind band." - Deli Magazine NYC
"The Rex Complex's off-kilter vibe reminds me of Tom Waits, but instead of drunk and ranting about whores and slaughterhouses at 3:00 am after the blood has been swept up from the barroom brawl, the band is heavily caffeinated and eager." - The Noise
"Forget everything you know about eclecticism in music, because the Rex Complex is about to blow up your spot." - The Weekly Dig (Boston)
"SImply amazing. Band leader Rex Hussmann rolls around on the floor, climbs on tables and gets people shaking their asses." - NSoB, NYC Blog
Based in Brooklyn, Railbird is the musical project of Sarah K. Pedinotti (S.K.P.) a songwriter and bandleader who mixes pop forms and experimental textures with her evocative lyrics.
This past March they toured to and from SXSW supporting their debut, self-released album, No One. Recorded mostly in Queens, and partly in upstate, NY, No One is a conceptual album that took a year and a half to complete.
"Railbird's music reminds me of those dreams you love and never forget. There are moments of pop but it's not from this planet." The Sound Spy, Boston, April 2011
