Allegedly from Toronto, Rock Plaza Central took New York City by storm this weekend — opening for Oxford Collapse at The Glasslands in Brooklyn on Saturday, and for Montreal’s Malajube and Atlanta’s Snowden at the Mercury Lounge in Manhattan on Sunday. An unbelievably energized ensemble of strings, brass, and percussion, Rock Plaza Central just might be this year’s most exciting musical breakthrough. The New York crowds seem to have corroborated this claim, as they wouldn’t let the band leave the stage without playing at least one encore — now, how often does that happen with an opener?
Rock Plaza Central plays Lee’s Palace tonight at 8 p.m. – check them out yourself and see how long you can keep them onstage before the headliners, Denver’s The Apples In Stereo come on.
