The Exits - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
The Exits
Due to illness Robert Hunter and Slayder Smet will not be performing tonight.

Brooklyn indie rockers The Exits bring fresh energy to a genre ready for new ideas. A tight trio, The Exits have a swaggering style in the vein of New York predecessors like The Strokes and The Velvet Underground, coupled with a songwriting approach inspired by everything from Jazz standards and beat poets to the rock and roll lineage from The Beatles to Nirvana.

The Exits are Jared Michaels (guitar/lead vocals), Ryan Calabrese (drums/vocals), and Tom Harrison (bass). Michaels and Calabrese met as students in college. The Exits’ songwriting delivers tales of city life and romance through catchy melodies that bend your ear on their way to firmly lodging themselves in your brain. Add to the mix a solid groove from the rhythm section and you’ve got the DNA of a serious rock band.

The band’s presentation is unmistakably rock & roll but the group is no throwback. The Exits are defined by modern songwriting and production, and their forward-thinking approach, with hints of electro and R&B, can help the genre hit refresh.
