Bay Uno ‘Catalina’ Record Release Show
Mar 7, 2015 @ 9:00 pm| $8
Bay Uno’s long awaited debut LP, Catalina, comes to life March 7th at the Living Room Wiliamsburg. It will be played in its entirety with full band for the first time. For this special show, Bay has surrounded himself by seasoned musicians Matt Whyte, Eric Lane, Andrew Livingston, Parker Kindred, Alex Asher and Zem Audu who will create a dreamy landscape for Bay’s sincere, soulful love songs.
Bay wrote the songs in his bedroom over the course of many years but rarely played them for anyone except close friends. His friend Matt Whyte (Earl Greyhound) offered to record him in his home studio, and it soon turned into a full-length record, complete with a horn section in the living room.
The songs on the record take place around different bodies of water, including the shores of Catalina off the coast of California, which Bay used to visit as a kid. The small island provided a magical backdrop to his childhood, with creatures like roaming buffalo and bright orange fish that could be seen clearly from the dock. Catalina is also where Bay reportedly learned about kissing.
“Anyone that knows me knows that I am obsessed with bodies of water and I will swim at any chance,” says Bay. “I will try to talk you into swimming with me, and you will say, ‘No way, it’s freezing.’ Then I will do anything it takes to get you to follow me into the water.”
Don’t miss Serena Jean (9pm) and Hairy Sands(11pm) also on the bill.
