HOMESHAKE AT THE WARSAW

The Warsaw in Brooklyn, HOMESHAKE was headlining. The sometimes-solo Peter Sagar, the indie-rocker of 2014’s debut In The Shower and his newest release, Fresh Air, was joined by group Mark Goetz, Greg Napier and Brad Loughead. Before HOMESHAKE took to the stage, openers  Jachary and KeithCharles Spacebar kept the crowd crooning, roving and lively.

The Warsaw was kind of like a ballroom that cannonballed into the Now. Just a big room by day. At night, it’s loud as hell. A head-thumping, vibrating lore; you can feel the music down to your toes. It smelled a little like B.O. Most people seemed half-drunk on the music. “It’s tight AF in here,” someone – I think KeithCharles – said. Someone nearby me came from DC to see HOMESHAKE after being introduced to his music through Mac DeMarco. And I think I saw a young Fabio in the flesh.

The crowd was, at turns, a muted roar and all-out thunder. I am hard of hearing, in one ear, courtesy of a 20-something behind me, who yelled on a decibel I thought only dogs could hear and cats capable of making – “I LOVE YOU HOMESHAKE!” There was singing-along, dancing, finger-waving, grooving, getting-down and the like – all to Jachary’s technicolor ascension, KeithCharles Spacebar’s fast riffs and the main event HOMESHAKE’s funky guitar.

See the gallery below for front-row pictures of HOMESHAKE and don’t miss your chance to see them next time they come to town. Until then, check out some other Warsaw Concerts.
