Check out the first single from The Hollows' new record, and then come see them play live with us at Emporium Arcade Bar on June 9

If there is a claim to fame for Brooklyn band The Hollows, it's the fact that there is no frontman. Or maybe it's that there are in fact six frontmen, all

Not only is the show free to attend, but if you RSVP here you can get a free drink or free tokens:

We're not going away, but we'll be scaling back a lot in 2016.

We've accomplished a great deal, and on December 18, we want to celebrate that.

Come on out for a once-in-a-lifetime TFL concert, featuring the musical stylings of our many friends who have been in the band over the past 8 years:

Bassel Almadani...

Nick Cardelli
Pete Castaldo
Andy Distel
Colin Fahey
Mike Grabinski
Joe Haggenjos
Dan Lieber
Dan Meinhardt
Khalfani Myrick
Kristina Priceman
Evan Walker
Chris Weller

This will truly be a night to remember

Special guest Jarryd Scott Steimer will open up the night for us at 10:30pm, sharp!
