Tucked in the heart of Brooklyn, an edgy little bar by the name of Matchless creaked its doors open for an assemblage of music industry insiders, struggling artists and hanger's on to commiserate with Dead Waves, an up-and-coming grunge-rock band. The venue was like stepping back in time; Black Sabbath blared homilies in the background, and a heavy mixture of PBR and cigarettes permeated the stale air. Everybody in the crowd knew somebody, even if not by name, they had seen them before because they travel in the same circles. They were the disillusioned, the few who still felt physical pain when exposed to injustices, the live and let lives’.

Four short days ago, Rob May and Ian Macpherson set off on their very first venture across North America. Flying from San Diego to New York and finally down to DC, the Bixel Boys made their debut appearance at U Street Music Hall—one of the best venues in DC to discover the more “underground” artists.
What’s unique about U Hall is that it contains a basement-type setup and is typically a dimly lit venue, meaning that all focus is on the music rather than the decorative light shows experienced during most live sets. It is also not your typical spot in the sense that the crowd, or at least at last weekend’s show, tends to be less of the dancing type. While some of the fans closest to the DJ booth grooved with the music, most of the people around them appeared mellowed out and receptive to the boys' set in a more spiritual way. From the booth, you could see outlines of moving bodies in the darkness but nothing more. Tonight, it was all about the boys.
