The Sweater Songs performing Weezer's "Blue Album", "Pinkerton" and more!
What started out as a fun idea to mix up their regular original music sets has now turned into a huge event with every show bringing out more and more fans. The Sweater Songs perform early Weezer albums in their entirety such as iconic classics “The Blue Album” and “Pinkerton” which include songs like “Buddy Holly”, “Say It Ain’t So”, “El Scorcho”, “The Good Life” and of course their namesake “Undone/Sweater Song.”

The band is made up of five life-long musicians who are all extremely active in the New York City music scene. Wes Hutchinson, Oscar Albis Rodriguez, Mike Chiavaro, Gunnar Olsen and Robert Cooper have been playing, writing and recording original music for almost ten years but they have all agreed that The Sweater Songs is possibly the most fun they could ever have in an evening.

The Sweater Songs pay homage to the “Buddy Holly” video (as well as geek rock in general) by wearing cardigans, collared shirts, ties and those classic thick-rimmed glasses—which they’ve been known to hand out at their shows as well. They’ve sold out several venues in New York City (which is no easy feat) and are now playing bigger venues to crowds of 600-1000 people. “We actually have legitimate, loyal fans” says guitarist/singer Wes Hutchinson “it’s the coolest thing to look out and see a massive crowd of people singing along to every song with us. Apparently we’re not the only ones who like Weezer.”

The band continues to add momentum with more shows and demand coming in every week. Spend an evening with The Sweater Songs and you’ll see why so many fans adore this band—and don’t be surprised if you find yourself singing “Ooooweeeeeooo I look just like Buddy Holly!” for days after.

"If you're feeling this you're my next victim," front-woman Ann Courtney intones with steely-eyed confidence, assuring the audience of motherfeathers of their submission to the cult. With their ferocious and enthralling live show, Mother Feather has ignited a wildfire of followers since hitting the New York club scene in 2010.

Epic songs warrant larger-than-life costumes and dance, and a garishly bedazzled Courtney and hype-woman sidekick Elizabeth Carena slither, thrust, and high-kick their way through a set that invokes Marc Bolan's cheeky swagger, Bowie's braggadocio, and the howl and shimmy of a "To Bring You My Love"-era PJ Harvey. This is pop cock-rock: anthemic riffs, now-or-never bravado, and tight dance beats bolstered by pop precision and purity of mission.

"'Mother Feather' is the muse," says Courtney. "It is the embodiment of your
wildest inspiration. Every song is a challenge -- to myself and the audience. I want catharsis and I want it now."
