The Space 5th Annual Battle of the Bands

@ The Space
April 24th & 25th

Tonight and tomorrow The Space is holding their 5th annual Battle of the Bands event. Stop by and see some great local talent competing for the title of most rockin band!

Mike from Like Trains & Taxis sent in a nice email informing us of this event. They're an indie soul from New Jersey and will be making a guest appearance at the Space for their 5th annual battle of the bands. They'll be acting as house band in between sets. After spending the last few months on the road from San Antonio to Chicago in support of their debut EP, they're now working on a full-length album in May with Grammy nominated producer Derrick "Drop" Braxton (Lupe Fiasco's The Cool).

In just over a year, Like Trains & Taxis has built a reputation as one of the most promising bands on the east coast with their thoughtful and original blend of soul, jazz, and rock. Called "transportation for your musical soul" by the Aquarian Press, the trio's self-titled EP (available on iTunes and Amazon) captures the hypnotic energy and fierce sincerity of their live show in 6 radio-ready tracks. The band has been touring in support of this debut release for the past 3 months, gaining fans in cities as far away as San Antonio and Chicago.

Check out their myspace, they're phenomenal! They're a really unique sounding band that's really starting to grow on me. It's guaranteed to be a really cool show, and definitely worth stopping in, to catch some local talent as well as some great out-of-towners.

The Space is located at 295 Treadwell St. (Building H) in Hamden, CT. Tickets are $10.
