Brooklyn Bowl and Brookladelphia present: Twenty Years Later: A 20th Anniversary Celebration of Phish's Billy Breathes
On Sunday, November 6, six NY bands will celebrate the 20th anniversary of this iconic Phish album. Controversial at the time of its release, it represented a new era, connecting the band to a more mainstream audience beyond its strong cult following. Rolling Stone said that Billy Breathes is a quiet gem of an album . The album proved the band to be master song crafters, as well as their reputation as one of the greatest jam bands. The cover of the album is a close-up shot of bass guitar player Mike Gordon, the first time that any member of Phish had appeared on an album cover.
The night will feature six sets of original music with the songs of Billy Breathes weaved throughout. Featuring Aqueous, Jimkata, Teddy Midnight, Cousin Earth, Escaper and Bad Faces.

Tearing out of Buffalo NY, rock/groove powerhouse Aqueous has built a name for themselves nationally. Aqueous has built a reputation for bringing high energy and tireless effort to their craft, and fans rave about the uniqueness and power behind every performance. With three studio albums under their belts, and their critically acclaimed live collection Live Nugs , Aqueous is as strong in composing as they are at communicating and improvising during their shows. Their onstage persona is infectious and undeniable; their lifelong friendship stands as a testament to the tightness of the music. While the band is relatively young, they are polished - check them out as soon as you can, and discover firsthand what the buzz is all about.
Take note: Jimkata is not a cool electronic rock band. I mean, they are. The band’s new album, In Motion, is a triumph of swirling analog synths and breezy pop hooks. It’ll make your body groove. But dig deeper. You’ll be rewarded with something more...personal.
Brooklyn based Teddy Midnight boasts a tightly crafted soundscape for the dance floor. With their self described Electro- Dance-Funk, the band’s live show sets out to get the party moving. Teddy Midnight, is capable of executing a variety of intricate compositions that run the gauntlet of prog rock, drum and bass, jazz, and downtempo.
Cousin Earth (formerly Known as Ukulelien) is a Brooklyn-based Folk/Rock/Fusion Band. With both an original repertoire and a vast array of covers, Cousin Earth spans a wide range of musical styles bringing both a sense of playfulness and technical ability to the music many people know and love. From bluegrass to electronica, this band will take any song and uke-i-fy it.
Escaper ... The literal definition of Escaper is one who escapes confinement . Founded in 2016, the Brooklyn based Post-Rock/Space-Funk Fusion quintet strive for a sound without limits. Recently joining the Ropeadope Records roster, Escaper blends soaring melodies provided by Will Hanza (guitars) with funk-laced rhythms laid down by Andrew Nesbitt (drums) and Jay Giacomazzo (bass). Weaving through this sound are the intricate yet lyrical textures of Adam Ahuja (keys) and Johnny Butler (sax). Escaper is slated to release their debut track Castles on December 2, 2016, and the full album in early 2017.
Bad Faces lie somewhere at the crossroads of traditional roots and modern psychedelic music; wry and plaintive, weathered but fresh, and all American. Like a drop of water, Bad Faces absorbs up through the roots of American music and grows a tree of its' own.
