The event dubbed “Campari Soda Presents” on Thursday, July 28, 2011, features Tummy Touch Records mainstays Turner Cody and The Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players along with fellow borough ‘bon vivants’, The Well-Informed. All three bands will take the mainstage at Bar Matchless in Greenpoint.

Set to begin at 8PM, the show marks the beginning of a summer-long campaign to bring the aforementioned Italian aperitif, “Campari,” and the great music that it inspires, to a larger audience.

Says vocalist Paul Loren of The Well-Informed:
“With summer heating up, we’ve found the most effective elixir for the oppressive humidity is the perfect blend of ice cold soda water and our ubiquitous, and somewhat infamous ‘Campari’. We imagine that it’s the perfect drink to accompany great local music, and knew that both Turner and the Trachtenburg’s would surely jump on such a fitting bandwagon.”

“Campari Soda Presents”, a truly unique evening of live music and signature cocktails, can be experienced ‘one-night only’ at 557 Manhattan Avenue in Brooklyn, New York. Turner Cody will perform at 8PM, with The Well-Informed and The Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players hitting at 9PM and 10PM, respectively.

The Freestyle Life features Socalled's "Sleepover" video


From The Freestyle Life: “In the new music video “Sleepover”, things quickly spin out of control when an uninvited gang of rowdy puppets arrive for an impromptu pajama party. A cross-pollination of folktronica, electro-funk, Canadiana, neo-soul, rap, dancehall and hip hop make this a worldwide party. Grab your flannel PJ’s and get ready to get down in your nightgown!”
