Gang of Youths at Mercury Lounge in New York on February 13, 2017



Comments: The first of three shows that the band bills as a “New York Residency.” Aquarian Weekly had this to say about the show:

Le’aupepe was a dynamic vocalist, singing muscularly a collection of soulful, melodic songs written from a place of pain, delivered with a mysterious Jim Morrison-like stage mystique. The band amplified Le’aupepe’s crooning and hollering with intriguing arrangements that cleverly cascaded from sparse to wall-of-sound. Although the ultimate product was a series of radio-friendly rockers, the songs were rooted in an intense, bare-naked integrity that made the songs far more vital than typical pop fare. Given the opportunity to reach a wider audience, Gang Of Youths may prove to become a fast-rising sensation.
