Brooklyn's TEEN visits Woodstock This Saturday

If there’s ever been a frustratingly underutilized Hudson Valley music venue, it’s the Colony Cafe. A beautiful, historic structure with a healthy-sized performance space, during the decade I’ve lived in the region, at least, it’s rarely maintained consistent hours and has been endlessly dogged with unreliable booking and management. So it’s been extremely gratifying to see the Colony’s programming reigns picked up by studio engineer and drummer Pete Caigan, who has lately cleared the way for some refreshingly cool shows at the Woodstock nightspot. One of them is Saturday’s date by Brooklyn quartet TEEN.

Started by former Here We Go Magic member Kristina “Teeny” Lieberson (vocals), TEEN finds her joined by her sisters, Lizzie (keyboards) and Katherine Lieberson (drums), and Boshra AlSaadi (bass). While the band’s 2012 debut, In Limbo (Carpark Records), offers sunny, psych-tinged modern pop sounds, TEEN’s newly released follow-up, The Way and Color (Carpark), is a dramatic shift into the realm of contemporary R&B inspired by D’Angelo and Erykah Badu.

In this April live-in-the-studio performance, the group does the new album’s “Not for Long”:



TEEN will perform at the Colony Cafe in Woodstock on June 28 at 8:30pm. Chris Maxwell and Adrien Reju open. Admission is $10. For more information, call (845) 679-5342 or visit www.colonycafe.com/.
