Bands to Watch 09: Artists to Watch in 2009

Originally printed in Campus Circle on December 23, 2008:

Gangi – Matt Gangi, multi-instrumentalist and Williamsburg resident, moved to Los Angeles and paired up with percussionist Lyle Nesse. Together they are Gangi, performing to those hip kids in Silver Lake, offering a blend of hip-hop and dance punk inspired by both of the above and all in between. Their show is rather visual, though you’ll have to get used to Gangi doing that “DJ” thing, where he stands at his table and silently says “check it” over and over by pointing his hand in the air.
