For some lucky rock n roll music fans, the end of April will usher in some rough around the edges, ecstatic basement rock by the name of TPR. What do those three letters stand for? Guess you’ll have to turn up at one of their two shows scheduled later this month in the Capital District and Central NY.
TPR formed in the rugged Adirondacks by Will Scheifley (guitar), Justin Schultz (bass), Kevin Lewis (guitar) and Sam Egan (drums). Now they’re migrating from the forests to assist live music seekers with dancing their pants off. To not miss out, rock fans are strongly encouraged to attend at least one but preferably both of their upcoming appearances. Their sound concoction incorporates flavors of Pink Floyd vocalists David Gilmour and Roger Waters, seared to a golden brown with early 2000’s rock akin to Jet and the Hives, finished with a garnish of punk rock spice. Don’t regret not seeing them and supporting local homegrown music. Go dance and have fun. You deserve it.
See them Friday, April 28 at 8 p.m. with special guests Good Hair & Robo-France 29 at Our Place Bar & Grill in Mechanicville, NY. Can’t make that date? Try the following night where TPR will be joined by the Thirds at the Beer Barrel Inn, in Oneonta, NY on Saturday, April 29 at 8 p.m. In the meantime, check out this NYS Music review of their live album and get pumped by listening to it on their Bandcamp.
