Local to express: The Trash Bags rock Union Square station



Last night, the LES-based Trash Bags held their record release party in a rather unusual venue — the band brought their thrash 'n' roll to the 14th Street/Union Square station (the L-train mezzanine) ... sadly we missed it ... here are two clips...

The band's debut record, produced by Billie Joe Armstrong, is available now via Muddguts ... you can likely find the vinyl down at the Cast, the boutique at 72 Orchard St. run by band members Moan Elisa and Chuck Bones.

The Trash Bags are on a bill tomorrow (Saturday!) night out at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn with local singer-songwriter Fiona Silver.

I liked this. Good energy good and lively music.
I wish they would give them a small clean stage and organize it so performances can occur regularly and presented at scheduled times announced on the mta website.
Yup make the subways great again....

Their clothing looks stylish and expensive so him rolling his narrow ass on that grimy floor was cringy.

“Here is New York. This is why I stay. I stay to hear the jazz musicians playing in the parks, and to browse the tables of books for sale on the street. I stay for a drink in a quiet bar, lit by golden autumn light, and for Film Forum double features in black and white. I stay for egg creams, for the amateur opera singers practicing with their windows open so we all can listen. For the Chinese grandmothers dancing by the East River, snapping red fans in their hands. For the music of shopkeepers throwing open their gates. I stay for the unexpected spectacle, and the chance encounter, and for those tough seagulls gliding inland on rainy days to remind us that Manhattan is an island, a potential space both separate and connected. Most of all, I stay because I need New York. I can't live anywhere else, so I hold on to what remains. We've lost a lot, but there's so much left worth fighting for. And while I stay, I fight.”
