Wayside and Bushel are psyched to present Greek Judas—Rebetika AF or as you’ve never heard it before.
** This show takes place at the Wayside Tap Room in Andes: 55 Redden Lane, Andes, NY
From the horses’ mouths:
‘Greek Judas plays rock versions of songs from the Greek Rebetika tradition. Rebetika is the Greek equivalent of early American blues. They are songs of the Greek underworld and of the refugees fleeing Turkey who filled the Athens slums in the 1920s. It’s the music of knife fights, hash dens, prison life & heartbreak. Why I Smoke Cocaine, I’m A Junkie, Two Mangas In Jail, The Smugglers… We play them loud, on guitars, bass & drums.’
Greek Judas is Quince Marcum, vocals, Wade Ripka, guitar and lap steel guitar, Adam Good, guitar, Nick Cudahy, bass, Chris Stromquist, drums (except they might have a different drummer for this event and also a back up Bollywood string section)
Rebetika meets metal in Greek Judas, “New York’s Best New Psychedelic Band.” It’s true: we’ve seen them. So should you.
