Product Description

This is a special new live disc from No Second Troy, recorded at the famous 930 Club in August 2008, which has hosted the best musical acts in the world since the 1980s, including Radiohead, Wilco, Death Cab for Cutie, the Arcade Fire, Stars, and many of the other bands that have influenced No Second Troy. Part of the reason for the concert was to raise awareness of 1Well, a nonprofit that connects the socially conscious with high need communities throughout the world in order to build life sustaining projects like wells, toilets and childcare centers, providing poor communities with the opportunity to work for a living wage.

ABOUT NO SECOND TROY

No Second Troy is on the verge of making the jump to the national stage. Recently featured on SPIN Magazine's website for the premiere of their new video for 'Into Your Sun,' the band's LP Narcotic has garnered critical acclaim nationwide, spending 3 consecutive weeks on CMJ's Top 200 playlist and appearing on ESPN, TMZ.com and XM Radio. Just two weeks after its release, the band was the featured artist of the week on XMU's R/A/D/A/R Report as one of the top unsigned artists in the country, and was added to the station's regular rotation. The band then went on to reach 5 on Alternative Addiction's Top Ten Unsigned Bands and charted at 8 on the K.K.B.B. Indie Top 20. After receiving spins in hundreds of cities across the U.S., ESPN featured The Gardens After Lockout, Brighten Up, Burned, and Masquerade, on Baseball Tonight and SportsCenter.

In a recent review, The Washington Post called the songs on Narcotic as ready for primetime as you will ever hear; while TMZ.com tapped the band as one of the Washington-area bands with the talent to break out of the DC scene. OnTap magazine notes that NST is already being called the best unsigned band in DC for its combination of radio accessibility and indie rock sensibility.

Featuring the earnest vocals of Jeff Wharen, backed by the band s subtle layering of guitars, piano, organ, bass, and drums, No Second Troy has found a way to blend the pop hooks of bands like Radiohead, Snow Patrol, and Coldplay, with the unique indie-rock arrangements of acts like Death Cab for Cutie, Arcade Fire, and Stars. In the spring of 2006, the band s EP caught the attention of noted producer Ted Comerford (Army of Me, Zox, Virginia Coalition) and also landed them a coveted slot at the North By Northeast (NXNE) festival in June of 2006. After showcasing, the band worked over the summer and into the fall with Comerford and mixers Jeff Juliano (John Mayer, Jason Mraz, David Gray), Mike Plotnikoff (My Chemical Romance, All American Rejects, the Cranberries) and Paul David Hager (Goo Goo Dolls) to finish Narcotic for its May 2007 release. NST has played to packed houses at the Knitting Factory Main Stage and Mercury Lounge in New York, the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. and the Viper Room in L.A.

No Second Troy burn bright as the Sun. --Spin

No Second Troy has found a way to blend the pop hooks of bands like The Fray, Snow Patrol and Coldplay with unique indie-rock arrangements. --The Village Voice

Don't worry record execs, there are plenty of talented unsigned artists left on the DC scene. No Second Troy is just one of the DC bands looking to break out. --tmz

Format: Audio CD
I started listening to No Second Troy shortly before the release of this album, and upon purchasing it, I was amazed at how well-crafted it was. The album highlights many of the great tracks that NST's fans know them for, and presents them in a way that sounds slightly different from the studio recordings, though still excellent. I highly recommend this album to anybody even slightly interested in what they've heard from this band.
