On Friday, April 26 at Brooklyn, New York’s Big Snow Buffalo Lodge, the crowd’s electric energy through the night gave way to mosh pits. As Girl Toy, Washington D.C.’s The Doozies, Annapolis’ Sun Club, Brooklyn’s Grand Resort and Turnip King graced the stage, roaring sets ranging anywhere from garage punk to summery fuzz-pop to lo-fi shoegaze dominated the space.
The story of how the show came to be begins with a challenge from promoter Jordan Iannucci of JMC Aggregate: If any band beat him at a round of “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater,” he would book them a show. So when the Maryland teenagers of Sun Club went up to Brooklyn last June to try their hand at the challenge, an intense match and Iannucci’s fumble on a final trick put Sun Club in the books as the first band to win the challenge.
