Escaper Sneak into New Paltz

It’s not often I get advance news of shows at Snug’s AKA Snug Harbor—hey, guys, Chronogram would love to occasionally cover who’s playing at your bar; we just need to have a way to find out about in a timely way—so I was happy to get an e-mail tip recently from the PR folks behind Brooklyn jam outfit Escaper letting me know about their July 28 gig at the venerable New Paltz dive.

Signed to the über-tight Ropeadope label (home to Antibalas, among other greats), Escaper features guitarist Hanza, drummer Andrew Nesbitt, bassist Jay Giacomazzo, keyboardist Adam Ahuja and saxophonist Johnny Butler, who collectively have previously worked with Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds, Robert Randolph & the Family Band, the Breakneck Boys, and Beyonce (?!). The band’s newly released debut is Skeleton Key.

Here’s a smattering of the quintet doing what they do:

Escaper will perform at Snug Harbor in New Paltz, New York, on July 28 at 11pm. Admission is $5 at the door. For more information, call (845) 255-9800 or visit https://www.facebook.com/snugsnewpaltz/.
