The Manhattan concerts at Arlene''s grocery kicked off with a bang with an eclectic week-end line up made of everything from disco break beats to industrial Goth, from rock to political punk. For the first time, New York City opened its doors to the Emergenza competition and what a mad weekend it was. HELOISE AND THE SAVOIR FAIR (see picture) had the crowd bopping to their infectious mix of retro electro pop on Thursday. Adding to their wonderful music and strong vocals (courtesy of Heloise herself) was definitely their “visual presence”. THE TRAGIC was up next and these were the weekend''s youngest band. They rocked and showed the older boys how it''s done. ANDY STACK stepped up to the stage and belted out tunes in the style of Jeff Buckley. With his petite frame and grace, captivated the audience with his very competent backing band. PORQUE NO? Was next on stage and they brought a Latin American flavour to the night. SIRENA SOL then graced us with her gorgeous voice backed by intricate guitar work from the band''s excellent guitarist. At this point, we didn''t know what to expect and KARMACYCLE stepped up and kicked everybody up the arse with their energetic rock set. The comment from the MC was: “more energy than a power station!” and right he was. Thursday night closed off with SUICIDAL POETS. A blend of rock and folk with yet another great female singer. Friday night was another great one from NYC talent. KIMBERLY KORN was in the mood for showing all the goods that Mother Nature was so kind to give to her. She duly obliged and showed that miniskirts are supposed to be worn by girls like her…her set?.. good strong vocals and amazing players. PORTO was a real surprise. Another female fronted band but this time these New Yorkers were here to rock…. and they proved it. Stacey “owned” the stage and belted out strong vocals “a la Lacuna Coil”. The drummer had sledgehammers for arms and the bass player and guitarist showed exactly what they were capable of. PANACEA was next. This band has clear ideas. Their songs were a concoction of “thrills, pains and emotional baggage”. Great atmosphere, great songs, great band. FN-Co (or Fred Niznik company) had more soul in his little toe than Jess Stone can claim to have in her body. This guy can sing his heart out… the songs would appropriate for a day out lazing on the beach (a brazilian beach preferably). TWIN TURBINE is a 3 piece that rocked everybody''s socks off. A “no bullshit approach” to simple rock and roll. Stripped, raw and full of guts!. BELOW CARMINE''s singer, claimed to have one testicle but showed that he can sing like as if he had both…. plus some more. The band was great and extremely tight. INTRICATE UNIT was by far the most powerful visual experience of the night. Industrial rock with Goth looks and professional stage attitude. Excellent approach and a special mention for having the best merchandise corner. Good luck supporting dope on their dates. The night closed with THE RIGHT BOOT MOVEMENT. An excellent band with a cello player as the lead instrument and percussion beats that got booties shaking. Saturday comes and KINGSCASTLE took the stage. A good band with guts and great hooks. STIFLING NEGLECT was young and heavy. Attitude balls and glory…a wicked combination! SPACEMAN THE BAND showed confidence and good stage presence. Step up KILIFAX. These punks had the left-wingers fisting the air with chants of “oi oi!”. Songs were very political with distinct anti-war messages…great show. MISTIC REIN was yet another female fronted band (how many great female singers are there in NYC?…is this the world''s best kept secret?). Great moods and fantastic arrangements. MOON CHILDREN closed off the evening with gorgeous vocals and beautiful written songs…yes, you guessed it…another woman showing the lads how to sing properly. Sunday came and we were prepared for a heavy night of rock….and rock they all did. GODEVIL kicked off the set with a tight energetic set that sent their f
