"New Bands Night" was an event I organized on February 13th, 2010 in New York City.

 

From a list of interested participants, three groups of relative (and in some cases, complete) strangers were put together for the purposes of starting bands, writing full sets of new material and performing them in a single night at a club and to an audience that had no idea what was going on.

 

Our three bands-- booked under the fake names Hunk Buns, The Tax IDs, and Del Close and the Spec Scripts-- made their debuts in the middle of a 5-act bill at Local 269 on East Houston St.
