What's happening Through July 30, 2016

The Way Station 
21+ all the time (it is a bar after all)

$5 donation strongly suggested for all events unless otherwise indicated.

4pm-Moving Pictures: Kill Bill - Volumes 1 and 2
Hosted by Alex D.!! It's my birth-month and I'm going to play my favorite things! To finish out the month, I'm going out on a limb here. I know that some of you love these movies, but some of you think they're too violent. I think they're both, and I've always wanted to see them on a big(ger) screen - no, I didn't see them in the theater, but you don't need to pay money twice to see them, just come on by!

10pm - Nerdeoke!  Hosted by Joe Rude of the Kings of Karaoke!

8pm- WAX: Stories on Vinyl

We're adorable. We're winsome. We're Chloe and Marcie and we want to see you this Monday, 25th July for our new monthly WAX! 

Storytellers: Sean O'Brien, Tricia Guadagni, Stormageddon and YOU! The skinny: bring a record, tell us a 5-minute story about a song, then spin that track. We wanna know all about that heartbreak/first dance/all night booze binge and we wanna hear the song that just won't unattach itself from the memory.
Specials: Draft beer--$4. Ridiculous, anachronistic entertainment--free all night, baby.

8pm- Sex In Space

In space, no one can hear you scream, but can they hear you coming? Galaxies far, far away are big, really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind bogglingly big it is. So what happens when reproduction heads toward the heavens? Aim to misbehave and find out what you should expect on the final frontier Don’t miss it before it disappears…like tears in the rain. 

*Special On Tap Family crossover event with our friends at Astronomy on Tap! Come see MCs from both events collide at the Way Station to settle the score: life science or physical?

8pm- MNOP
Genre: Indie

Formed in Brooklyn during 2013 by guitarist and songwriter Amelia Hazen, May No One Perish (MNOP) has evolved from its anti-folk roots into an energetic four-piece folk-punk band. Fast-paced and confessional, their densely lyrical songs are formed around loss and heartbreak as well as an acute sense of life’s shortness.

8pm- Gentleman Brawlers
Genre: Afropop 
For fans of: TuNeYaRdS & Stereolab

Gentleman Brawlers are a funky 5-Piece band known for intense performances that walk the lines between slick songcraft, theatrical flair, and sonic experimentation. 2014 was a landmark year for the band, drawing critical acclaim in the New York and London Music Press. Brooklyn’s influential magazine The Deli listed them among their top 10 emerging New York bands, and Veteran BBC music writer Tom Robinson offered lavish praise for the group, noting the “silken female vocals” and “micron-precision drum grooves.” Robinson went on to call the ’Brawlers “a band that will take over the world” if they manage to pen the right song. Led visually by vocalist/dancer Becca Fox’s compelling sense of stagecraft, the Gentleman Brawlers are a sight & a sound you don't want to miss! 

"A virtuoso live band of this calibre – grooving together like a beautifully engineered machine – topped off with silken female vocals...Liquid and inventive township style guitars, micron-precision drum grooves, yes… but what’s nailing it all together is a bassist with the effortless rhythmic flick of a Norman Watt-Roy or a James Jamerson."—BBC's Tom Robinson, Fresh On the Net, Fresh Faves  "It had me on the funky intro. Great fusion of afro-soul, and dreamy synth pop, driven by a tight bassline and interesting guitar riffs. Lots of elements coming together beautifully." - David Durant, Fresh On the Net, UK Weekly Listening Post

9pm- Shayfer James
Genre: Folk-Rock, Noir Pop Singer Songwriter
For fans of: Tom Waits, Danny Elfman, Fiona Apple

Shayfer James weaves surprisingly genuine musical landscapes that evoke the gauzy, sweaty sexuality of gulf-coast barrooms and the fantastical, narcotic mysticism of a Lewis Carroll-inspired three-ring circus. Mr. James' noir-infused, piano driven music swaggers from dark danceable anthems to harrowing ballads with jazz lilted satire and whiskey-dirt grit.

"New & Noteworthy Alternative" - iTunes

"Rich orchestration swells over James’ melodic bellows and conjures up a dark and sinful scene underscored by mischievous charm". - wnyc.org


10pm- The Travelers
Genre: Rock-Hop/Funk & Blues/Stoner Soul

Moving Pictures: Stargate Movies

Hosted by Alex D.!! It's my birthmonth and I'm going to play my favorite things! This is the day for all you closeted Stargate fans (I have the full 10-season box set, I'm out and proud!) I can't winnow all of the series to 5 episodes, so we'll have to make do with some movies. We start with Stargate: Continuum, the last movie of the series, where you only need to know a little bit to understand what's going on ;) We finish with the movie that started it all, Stargate, where Kurt Russell plays Duke Nukem and Jaye Davidson plays another weird character.

Superman Vs. Batman
