On Friday, Feb. 7th, we’re hosting another installment of Live @ Metrosonic featuring EMEFE and hosted by comedian Myq Kaplan, with special guest Smoota and a DJ set by 81Neutronz. Attendees will be treated to an awesome night of music, entertainment and art, presented in a setting that fosters expressive, inspired performances, & encourages audience interaction, all with an open bar (8pm-11pm) and some really cool surprises. As this is a private event for members and band guests, our “in studio” audience is as close and connected to the performers as you get, and literally become part of the show. Enjoy the after show dance party or chill in the lounge with the band. This is truly a unique experience, one not to be missed! And for all of you who can’t make it here, the entire event is broadcast Live in HD on our home page and on YouTube.
Ticket purchase for this event is available at the TOP of this page.
This week’s show is proudly sponsored by The Brooklyn Brewery.
A singer and trombone player, Smoota writes steamy, sensual songs with a directness and honesty unusual in music. His groovy, provocative, and arousing style has drawn comparisons to Serge Gainsbourg, Barry White, Bryan Ferry, Peaches, and Beck. Renowned for his passionate trombone playing and tours with TV on the Radio, Sufjan Stevens, and Spoon, Smoota has developed a reputation for a rare combination of alluring lyrics and warm, erotic sounds.
