FOCUS/VIRUS Fall Tour: Day 1

Day 1:
Stony Brook

We had an awesome show @ SUNY Stony Brook last night. It was part of the Halloween Rock Yo Face Showcase. We were joined on stage by Brooklyn Alums Planet Rump and Great Tiger. Their chicken tenders were the best dinner we’ve had in a week.

The crowd was all dressed in their Halloween Rave best and they danced hard to all three sets.

Pics can be found here:

Today we’re on our way to our 1st show ever in Atlanta! The drive is about 14 hours from NYC. Our GPS says we will arrive around 2am. Wish us safe travels as we fill our time napping, driving, eating @ local Cracker Barrels (stopped @ 1 already!), and talking mad shit.

Send us a mix tape and we’ll download it for the drive!!!

Tonite-Tayisha Busay

We’re pretty much the best band ever. Jk

….there’s always Hanson for realz. Check out this write up from QRO Magazine. Best quote. “This band could open for Hannah Montana one night and Marilyn Manson the next without missing a beat. Their set was infused with weirdo innocent thrills.” Thanks MIKE @QRO for coming out and having a great time w/us!

Check out this latest review from our northside fest showcase.

A few performances really stood out, but the ladies and gentleman of Tayisha Busay were especially special. They are like a suburban parody of the Fly Girls from In Living Color and Salt n’ Peppa girl groups that all of us 80′s babies …

House of Yes

The L Magazine’s Northside Festival has made a brave and very smart move by welcoming the House of Yes and Tayisha Busay as they present a night of the brightest, baddest, chrome-covered, high-bouncing music and righteous showmanship that you can only find in the bottom of a Lucky Charms box, OR at this show. Bands that have fun? Is this really Williamsburg? The night will prove itself to be the most unique and powerful show in the festival. Line-up includes;
Tayisha Busay – a glitter-chugging, electro-dance trio of choreographed, detention room C+ students that make ridiculous DIY pop – a mind expanding take on the girl group.
Chappo is an electro-pop band from a parallel universe. They’re “spacey-ear-candy”. It’s “Eno vs Flaming Lips kind of flavor” -37 Flood –
Bad Brilliance has a very large and very strange yellow ball head and his music will blow your mind.
Planet Rump (live DJ dance floor set) – an interplanetary booty-blastin electro-funk trio that crash landed here on Earth to give birth to your wildest
June 26th , House of Yes, 342 Maujer St. (L to Grand). Doors at 9pm. Drink Specials all night.
$10 at the door. $7 if you come decked in glitter.
$6 if you RSVP before June 25th to [email protected]

come in glitter face get discount!!!!
