Live at Positively 4th Street

by nickname: Rebel



Live set by nickname: Rebel opening for Brown Cuts Neighbors at Positively 4th Street's Goodship Tuesdays night in Troy, New York. This was our second proper live show after the 'noise shack' debut performance at the Park Fest in Albany New York with The Roots and They Might Be Giants. This is the only public performance with the complete original five-piece lineup with Seana Biondolillo on vocals.

This is one of our favorite performances. It was a packed house and people went crazy. Seana completely freaked some people out with her confrontational lyrics and non-stop attack. The groove was very heavy. A sign of things to come. This was our proper debut after weeks of practice in RPI's West Hall - a place that was notorious for it's ghosts, civil war history (a hospital for the Union--very appropriate with our very clear choice to reclaim the name "Rebel" from the South) and it's dark (and recently decontaminated) nuclear experimental past.
