Watch Scott Metzger, Joe Russo, Robert Walter, & Andy Hess Destroy Brooklyn Comes Alive [Pro-Shot Video]

first_imgThe second annual Brooklyn Comes Alive was a dreamy success, bringing together dozens of musicians to play in once-in-a-lifetime rotations. Taking over three venues in the heart of Williamsburg, the day-long event will surely go down in the books as one of the more unique of its kind. Of the many highlights was this super group that had only played together once before as the Brooklyn Bowl All-Stars.Returning to their familiar stage was Scott Metzger, Joe Russo, Robert Walter, and Andy Hess for a fantastic set of NY-bred jams. The band performed some awesome covers–“Yeah, You’re Right” by The Meters, “The Ironic Twist” by Jimmie Vaughn, and “Funky Mule” by Ike Turner–while also including a few Metzger-led WOLF! songs and some Robert Walter original compositions. The two biggest highlights, however, came in the form of The Beatles‘ “Day Tripper” and The Band‘s “Ophelia”, which both drew huge reactions from the excited audience. Russo and Metzger are no strangers to the Bowl, and they know just how to harness the energy in that room, putting on an energetic performance that delivered the goods.Earlier today, the festival shared nearly 30 minutes of music from the venerable quartet. Sandwiching The Beatles classic “Day Tripper” are Metzger’s WOLF! original “Pork ‘N Slaw” and Robert Walter’s 20th Congress‘ “Don’t Chin The Dog.” Building in the classic covers with some original disposition fulfilled the festival’s craving of rock and roll to the fullest extent.
