Guest band, the Bloodsugars, play this Saturday night at Brillobox. The Bloodsugars hail from Brooklyn NY and are bringing a unique blend of indie dance rock to the burgh. Also on the bill are Pittsburgh bands Good Night States and Round Black Ghosts. Philadelphia band Grammar Debate will also be performing.
The Bloodsugars recently released their latest EP titled BQEP. This six song EP consists of catchy indie rock songs mixed with the clean vocals of singer Jason Rabinowitz. The Bloodsugars stand apart from other “indie dance rock” bands with their intelligent songwriting and arrangements. Anyone who has ever played an instrument can immediately pick up on the tremendous technical aptitude showcased by all four members. Take a listen to their music and hear for yourself at: www.myspace.com/bloodsugars.
The Brillbox is located in Bloomfield across the street from the new Children’s Hospital on Penn Avenue. Brillobox is where to go to hear local and national indie rock bands in Pittsburgh. The scene is filled with hipsters, great music, strong drinks, and flocked velvet wallpaper. Geekstar’s suggestion is to arrive early and have dinner at the neighboring Taste of India restaurant. Next, grab a Straub and enjoy the show at Brillobox.

Read what people are saying:
The Bloodsugars play sweet garage synth-pop, refreshingly unconnected to bands of the 80′s in it’s simplicity. - The Village Voice
The Bloodsugars are the perfect party band for intelligent dancers. - The L Magazine
The New York Rock band the Bloodsugars has an uncanny ability to engage it’s listeners with captivating and soulful sounds. Jason Rabinowitz’s voice is reminiscent of Elvis Costello. Eerie and mutually arresting. - Toledo Free Press
Note: Jason Rabinowitz decided to name the band The Bloodsugars as a wink to being diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 9. The band was originally formed with fellow NYC-natives and school chums David Beauchamp on drums, Brendan O’Grady on bass and Matt Katz on synths. Beauchamp has since parted ways with the group to devote more time to playing with the Jeffrey Lewis Band, and The Bloodsugars have been blessed with the addition of Kenneth Salters behind the kit.
