The bloggers and promoters of Gotham Rocks care as much about building community as they do about throwing hard-rocking shows. Scouting talent from the five boroughs and beyond, the agency has assembled a quintet of like-minded acts designed to bring a burgeoning scene together for the Gotham Rocks tour. The two-fisted tonsils of Angelina DelCarmen endow Charetta's rock angst with brassy vocal lines that could easily lead any pop-radio hit or all the town's children into the nearest Hot Topic. From selling out New York’s esteemed Irving Plaza to recording with Brett Hestla of Creed fame, Charetta’s rising star burns like a combustible Cassiopeia as the band approaches its five-year anniversary.
With a wall of sound as thick as a wet brick, Ghosts of Eden keeps the '90s alive with grungy nods to the Smashing Pumpkins and Pearl Jam. At the top of the evening, Beantown country-rockers All Night Affair switch gears with winsome twang-pop reminiscent of Lady Antebellum, Days of Season doles out potent power-pop, and ISpaceWalkSometimes traipses a musical tightrope of alternative and heavy rock.
