Jarry: When they told us the "party bus" was BYOB, some people decided to bring six-packs of beer, but I decided to bring low expectations.
Unfortunately, my expectations were not low enough.
(For the uninitiated, Montauk is a newly hip vacation destination town at the eastern tip of Long Island, and the Surf Lodge is at the center of its young, trendy scene.) We were invited to attend and cover the event as press and arrived via party bus, though the vast majority of people on the bus were not press, just eligible members of The League.
Brett had been on the app for a few weeks, whereas Jarry had it for only a couple of days, and neither of us was sure exactly what to expect.
The night ends with a final 20- to 30-minute simultaneous set as the audience groups break up and people listen to whoever they want. "It's like a house concert on steroids or a sonic tapas bar of your next favorite bands," says Microsessions founder Paul Schomer, a former NPR Music producer and Sirius XM/PRI on-air music reviewer. Established in 2011, Spaceworks NYC is a nonprofit organization that develops affordable rehearsal and studio space for artists working in New York City.
"Audiences and artists here in Austin love the concept." Seth Grueneberg, multi-instrumentalist for Austin band The Wheelwrights, says "I've played live music in Austin for 15 years and this is the most fun I've ever had at a any gig." Microsessions showcases have been hosted monthly in Austin since February 2016.
This was especially due to the fact that every guy around me looked like the kind of dude that picked on me for not being so great at kickball in middle school.
There were mimosas, bottles of rosé, vodka cocktails, and more.
Tickets are in advance, available at Eventbrite.com, and at the door. This was also my first time in Montauk, so I was impressed with the lavish setup of fancy couches and pillows on the beach right by the shoreline.That, and I was very much into the chicken kebabs and sliders being passed around on tiny plates. For the first hour, there was an open bar, so I once again made sure to take advantage of it to get my fair share of mingling moxie via free drinks.I was MORE than happy to take full advantage in order to get through the next five hours of forced mingling.
When they announced that they were going to start moving some of us around, I must have looked at Jarry like my eighth-grade teacher had just told us to find a partner for a biology lab.Each act plays four 15-minute sets in a row - Microsessions - at the same time.
