Last October, Paste dedicated a week to CMJ’s Music Marathon in New York City, where we set up in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for three days of interviews, acoustic performances and even a showcase at the Paste Parlour, presented by Squarespace. Our friends at Lagunitas Brewing provided tasty drafts while we saw an impressive lineup of established musicians along with up-and-comers come through our lounge at The Living Room’s new location at 134 Metropolitan Ave.
PARLOUR TRICKS opened things up at our late afternoon showcase, and everyone in attendance was buzzing about the powerful stage presences of this New York band. Between the synchronized dancing, coordinated outfits and enough attitude to make an impression even among the bevy of bands performing that week, PARLOUR TRICKS went beyond the music to make themselves one of the most memorable shows of the week. Watch the video above for PARLOUR TRICKS’ performance of “Love Songs” live at the Paste Parlour at CMJ, presented by Squarespace.
