This Way to the Egress
If Tom Waits and Patti Smith made a musical lovechild, then sent that kid train-hopping until it was old enough to come back home and form a band…… sure enough that band would be like EGRESS. Whether you know them as the “dance band to ring in the end of the world with” or by their “raise a glass and drop a beat” attitude, EGRESS will leave their mark on you. They are known to catapult the audience with their rambunctious stage show while generating enough energy to light up a small city. Their electrifying M.O. has brought them to share the stage with amazing acts like The Squirrel Nut Zippers, The Dresden Dolls, and World Inferno Friendship Society. The groups otherworldy-ness have gifted them with the ability to perform everywhere; from 2nd line parades through the French -Quarter in New Orleans, to festivals throughout the US & the UK, all the way to tiny pubs nestled in back alley’s and to sold-out crowds at prime music venues like the 9:30club in Washington D.C.
