This past Thursday, Turbo Suit was joined by Ryan Stasik of Umphrey’s McGee, to cover the Nirvana album Nevermind. Fans of Turbo Suit, or Nirvana, or most likely both, were treated to a wonderful evening of grunge meets untz in the newly opened The Hall at MP in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
The quartet took welcomed liberties with each tune; at times stretching them out, while at others clearing them of the vocals. It was hard to tell where one song ended, and another began, and that was okay. Opening for Turbo Suit was the Nevermind Orchestra who brought “psyhco-jazz-grudge” arrangements of Nirvana tunes to the stage.
The energy was high, eliciting some very enthusiastic dance moves from the crowd. By the end of the night, this one-two punch made the $20 cover well worth it. Honorable mention to the food and drink menu which were each high quality and reasonably priced. If this perfect storm of music and culinary delights ever forms again, be sure not to miss out.
