All Events related to artist - The Threads - From Today (Sunday, 26th January) onwards
New York City’s The Threads, born out of the frustration of the dying Rock & Roll scene in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The Threads are a band of rockers who long for the days of the Tompkins Square Riots, squatters on every corner instead of a Starbucks, and no fucking bike lanes. All veterans of other sleazy NYC rock outfits, the gentlemen came together to pursue one goal: to create a true and honest rock show. Started in 2004 by Mick Brown, lead singer of the infamous Lower East Side Stitches, guitarist Roger Jaghoo after a Super Bowl party dissolved into an alcohol fueled jam session. The idea was to play straight up Rock & Roll. Not Punk Rock, or Indie Rock, or Glam Rock, but straight up Rock music which had been lacking for quite some time. Joined by then-bassist Andy Dahill the band began gigging around Manhattan’s Lower East Side and East Village.
