To say Tula Vera is a great band is reductive. They’re songs have all the catchiness of radio pop hits and all the charm of your favorite artists basement demo tapes. They’re Pink Floyd meets Foxygen, they’re The Flaming Lips meets the Strokes, they’re Tula Vera, and I’d expect that we’re all going to be hearing a lot more about them in the next few years.

Drummond shredded it every time. The guitar was still a highlight even in songs without a prominent guitar part or solo.
Parcells could sing as soft or loud as each song called for, her voice ranging from soft, lovely crooning to vicious rock 'n roll screaming.

We recorded our self-titled album with Max Rauch that just came out. And we just went into the studio at William Paterson, where Dylan and Joe go to school, to record some demos. Recording and writing is a constant process, and we definitely want to release some more music in the next year.

It is absolutely essential to note that every single band that performed tonight deserves praise and accolades. Use Big Words, Electric Sensei, ManDancing, Tula Vera, and Will Wood compromised the rest of this truly impressive lineup and helped to give Jean Pool the badass, hard rocking celebration they deserved.

Regardless if you’re sitting in the pews or hunching over at the bar, there is a need for escape and pray for help. For the broken trodden, tired, and blue, there is just a place that houses such a person and the concerns towards safeguarding the music, art, and culture of their identity.
This is more than just another venue or club as it yearns to present itself with a D.I.Y. based environment free from capitalistic gains or egotistical movements. No, this is more than just "New Jersey's CBGB's" or some hole in the wall. For many, this is our fucking home.
