William Beckett (ex The Academy Is…) will be recording his live set when he plays The Wire tonight, April 5, and we will have two exclusive songs available for anyone who purchased an advance ticket online after they have been mixed in our studio.
The Wire is proud to have Dinner and a Suit join us this Friday, March 22, along with Sunset Pilgrims, Ocean Hands and Northern Skylights. They were recently named a Buzzworthy Band by MTV and have also been included in MTV2′s Projekt Revolution, the Vans Warped Tour and tours throughout the East Coast and Midwest.
“Peddling hooky, anthemic jams backed by passionate pop vocals, Dinner And A Suit — Jonathan Capeci, Joey Beretta and Anthony Genca — bring to mind a handful of piano-driven pop-rock favorites such as Coldplay, Jack’s Mannequin, and The Fray — but without any of the shmaltz people immediately and unfairly pin on piano-driven pop-rock”

The “Sublime Currency” lyrics say it all: “I can push the buttons/I can wrestle with the phantoms/Till I see that all the best things happen naturally.” This too shall pass, Walters says, just hang on long enough and it will all make sense.
There is more to life than what overwhelms you, like nature, spirituality, art, science, philosophy and more, Walter says: “It should all be some sort of sublime currency.”
Album release shows are a big reason why we do this and we’re honored to have The Beard of Zeus playing theirs with us this Saturday. We’ve known these guys since The Recovery Act Days and look forward to celebrating with them!
The IE Weekly chose The Beard of Zeus as their Band of the Week and took some time to chat with them about their DIY approach to music.
“With its own recording studio in tow, The Beard of Zeus sets off to create rock music of the kind that “makes you want to thrust your pelvic basket,” according to bassist Jason Grasso. The foursome formed almost by accident when Grasso and Russell Chase’s former band The Recovery Act broke up and Adam Hernetiaux and Tim Kneezle happened to be the perfect jam partners.
