A Year In Review Via Music With A View
December 21, 2015
A venue can make or break live music.This is a known fact for both the music obsessed and casual concert attendees alike. And though it sucks, even the best bands have been cursed with playing in dingy forgettable spots.
The secret garden of Zerzura at Plunge however is no such venue. With lush botanical surroundings and a view of the New York City that literally takes your breath away, the rooftop garden proved to be the perfect backdrop for filming a series of musical performances in partnership with Gansevoort Meatpacking, BalconyTV + The END. It was especially perfect on breezy sunshiny days, as was the case for filming breakout Australian musician, Cody Simpson. On days like that, the venue proved to be unforgettable. After filming, the good vibes and tunes continued into the night with a free performance showcase.
As 2015 quickly comes to an end, here is a year in review via music with a view… from soul singer songwriter Grace Weber to indie pop stars Cruisr. Take a look and listen and stay tuned for more performances in the New Year.
Cody Simpson: Acoustic guitar riffs never looked or sounded better. In June, Cody floated through his song “New Problems” with indescribable ease and sincerity.
Grace Weber: Ushering in spring in NYC with a slick and soulful performance by Grace Weber. Check out her performance of “Oil and Gold.”
Cruisr: A carefree performance of “All Over” by Philadelphia based indie pop band Cruisr was the epitome of rooftop casual and cool, though it was a bit steamy that afternoon in August.
