An Evening of Low Rock w/ You Scream I Scream & Bipolar Jukebox
Wednesday, July 27th, 2011 @ 8:00 PM
You Scream I Scream, based on Nantucket and in New York City, is at its core a three-piece band with distorted bass guitar and vocals, Rhodes and synth, along with floor tom-driven drums and big cymbals. The music’s unique fingerprint is part Talking Heads in its beats and the lyrics’ sometimes dark playfulness, and Floyd Kellogg’s vocal stylings--baritone singing and yelling contrasted with “bitchy girl” backing vocals--and stripped-down instrumentation can be reminiscent of Morphine or Soul Coughing. “Bug in a Light,” the band’s debut album, led to several catchy music videos, landing spots on MuchMusic’s "The Wedge,” MTV, New York Noise and Billboard.com. YSIS has recorded material for an EP as well as their second full-length album, to be released later in 2011.
If you missed the 4TH Time Around in May, this next date is your chance to experience a great night of dancing fun. Those who did attend in May will surely want to return as they danced all night. From the first song to the last encore, they were screaming for more.
It wasn't just the crowd who had a great time. The band members, Keith Riendeau, John Jarsbek, Rob Brainard and Doug Morneault expressed that playing for such an electrifying and energetic group of people fuels their passion for the music they play. This makes for a memorable night for the band as well.
Their blend of 50's-80's music, with tight vocal harmonies, whether fast or slow, will surely bring you to the dance floor.
Bridge Street Live's Nightclub Atmosphere, couple with a perfect sound system, will provide for an exceptional dancing and listening experience for all. YOU GOTTA BE THERE!!!

As Joe describes it, “LittleHouse is a song-lovers band, with strong vocals and clear lyrics that are meaningful to adults of all ages. I call the blending of styles ‘Heartland Music.’”
“A night out listening to the original music of LittleHouse is an intimate experience,” says singer/songwriter Joe Patrina. Join us for this wonderful evening of music with LittleHouse at Bridge Street Live!
