I was very new to the band Otherwise and was supposed to catch them as an opener for Lacuna Coil but due to an unfortunate circumstance the day of the show this was not meant to be. Despite this hiccup I would instead be the only member of press in attendance at a private preview of their material when the guys dropped by the EMI Music Publishing offices. For those who might not know this little fact, all the Century Media Records and Nuclear Blast Records are distributed by EMI. This was cool for sure but I needed to see the band live and in the electrified sense because that is what they are all about. Lucky for me they had set up a show over at The Studio at Webster Hall and brought along Red Line Chemistry and Janus as support. There were a couple of other bands on the bill but I was not able to enjoy them based on the timing of the night. Studio gigs tend to start as early as 6pm, and there was no way that I could get to that. Clicking the logo below will take you over to the full concert review and photo galleries but then do come back to the blog posting as I have some side moments and visuals that are only being presented in this space.
