Ex-Lower East Sider, guitar guru and yes, former Lo-Down contributor (see JP’s Food Adventures), JP Bowersock has produced a new album, “Big Songs for Small Spaces,” with the band zerobridge. They’ll be celebrating the album release with a show at Mercury Lounge tonight at 8:30pm. Lead singer, Din, still lives in the neighborhood so be sure to stop by and give them some local love.
The Mercury Lounge concert notes read: It’s not often you hear about a band like NYC based zerobridge. Lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Din and drummer Mohsin are brothers who trace their lineage back to the disputed territory/conflict zone of Kashmir, nestled within the Himalayan region of South Asia. Bassist Greg Eckelman, (Orange 9mm, The Phoids) and lead guitarist JP Bowersock (the Strokes, Julian Casablancas & Ryan Adams) round out the four piece rock n’ roll band whose sound draws their influences from the likes of the Replacements, Some Girls era Rolling Stones, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Oasis, Lou Reed and New Order. With 3 releases behind them, zerobridge are set to self-release their new LP entitled Big Songs for Small Spaces, produced by the guru himself, JP Bowersock.
I’ve heard them live and trust me, they can fill any size space with their fantastic big sound. You can see the video for their new single, “Ten Years,” from the the new album here.
