BTR Live Studio: Wakey! Wakey!

New York is dangerous, littered with thieves
We’ve no morals here, we just do as we please….
But I don’t wanna go home where they all stare at me
cause I’m tattoed, and fired up, and drunk, and obscene…

lyrics from Wakey! Wakey! – War Sweater

Today we present Wakey! Wakey! on BTR Live Studio.

Michael Grubbs dropped by our studios to perform today’s exclusive live solo set. Wakey! Wakey! has been dazzling fans for the last several years with indie pop deeply rooted in the piano stylings of one man and transformed by a growing group of players. Wakey!Wakey! released the impressive Silent As a Movie last winter, followed by covers album Wednesdays, and Live At Bowery Ballroom. I  had a chance to speak with Mike about his ever-growing band, being raised by a piano teacher, moving to the greatest borough of them all (BK represent!), and his Halloween costume.

Wakey! Wakey! plays Bowery Ballroom on 10/14 with label-mates The Undisputed Heavyweights, Matt Singer, & Pearl And The Beard. At the show,  BTR and Family Records will be distributing a limited edition mixtape of these four artists featuring songs from their BreakThru Radio performances!

More Upcoming Shows:
11/22 @ Public Assembly – Brooklyn, NY
12/19 @ Music Hall of Williamsburg – Brooklyn,NY
