Shake The Baron
Pianos (158 Ludlow St., Brooklyn)
Guitarist/Vocalist Andrew Oedel, drummer Matt Addison, and bassist Max Currier bonded over their common love of good music and bad beer. Acoustic jam sessions and impromptu sing-alongs soon became collaborative songwriting sit-downs and electrified noisefests. When second guitarist Jon Markson joined the band, Shake the Baron refined their sound palette and pooled resources to produce a full-length album and soon signed with NYC-based Super Duper Records.
